Briefly introduced: Nokia 5110 Monochrome LCD module with 84×48 pixels

The LCD display which was originally used in the Nokia 5110 has indeed found a long time ago the way to a breakout board, but it is still simple useful for various microcontroller boards, because it can be relatively easily controlled and programmed.

It has, depending on the type or provider, 4 white or colored LEDs to illuminate the display even in the dark and with the resolution of 84 × 48 pixels it provides a large enough area for example, to display temperature and so on. In principle, it can also be powered with 5V, but this is not recommended.
