I’m interested in using a nokia 6100 screen. On eBay they are less than $5. But for a breakout board they are up to $40. I know the ribbon cable is tiny, but aside from physical interfacing and LED power, is there anything about the breadboard that is necessary to use it with the arduino? Could I use the $5 ebay screen if I can manage to connect it? Or is there some kind of additional driver on the breakout board?
If it is the case that I can use the plain cheap screen, is there a way to know what kind of ribbon cable that is so I can try to find something to adapt it to a PCB?
edit: I think the ones I found on ebay might be knockoffs, but my question remains, can they be used as simply as the breakout boards?
