[size=16][font=Arial]Want a decent user interface for Arduino?  Try this ...[/font][/size]

I've developed a color LCD shield that uses Nokia 6100 LCD & a 5 direction joystick, it has features such as --

  • Use popular Nokia 6100 LCD (Philips controller), 4K color and 128x128 pixels.
  • Directly plug into the Arduino or Freeduino board
  • Has a 5-direction Joystick , but only use ONE ADC PIN on Arudino.
  • Supplied with fully functional Arduino library & demo application sketch.

The Nokia_lcd library provides basic graphic functions that can draw pixels, lines, characters, bitmaps, boxes, circles and etc.  The Demo application also provide an interrupt-driven Joystick control routine, which can be used to accept user inputs and menu navigation.

The schematic & the Nokia_lcd library can be downloaded from my website, link - http://www.nuelectronics.com/estore/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=10

Here are photos of the Demo application --

Nice one!



Very nice! :)
Looks like it would be fun to play with


great :)
the joystick looks a little small anyway..


As a matter of interest, what's your source for the joystick part?



has anyone bought one of these?
Are they any good?



Joystick looks like this, or something similar:

Thanks for the link, seeedstudio also found some for me but seems like they are out of stock now.



does anyone know where to find the Nokia_lcd library as the link on http://www.nuelectronics.com/estore/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=10 does not work for me and the page says:
'A Project note for the Color LCD & keypad shield will be published soon.'
:-[ :'(


I created two applications for Nokia LCD: clock and reversi.
You can find them here:



andyp, very very nice.  These two examples will go a long way to getting people making more great games and gadgets.

Cool!  I'll have to buy one of these soon.  It'd be good to have an Arduino board based on the Arduino mini with one of these screens built-in and a battery; with the power of the Arduino board, it could operate portable sensors, gadgets, games, and whatever you like!


Looks good, can't wait to get my hands on one of these...  ;)
