ESP8266 and LCD4884 example

This LCD4884  provides a 84×48 display this LCD shield can help meet your needs. It is able to display in English, Chinese and even images, it uses the SPI interface and works Ok with a 3.3v power source

From the source code, these connections worked for me

* Connections:

* WeMos D1 Mini Nokia 5110 Description
* (ESP8266) PCD8544 LCD
*
* D2 (GPIO4) 0 RST Output from ESP to reset display
* D1 (GPIO5) 1 CE Output from ESP to chip select/enable display
* D6 (GPIO12) 2 DC Output from display data/command to ESP
* D7 (GPIO13) 3 Din Output from ESP SPI MOSI to display data input
* D5 (GPIO14) 4 Clk Output from ESP SPI clock
* 3V3 5 Vcc 3.3V from ESP to display
* D0 (GPIO16) 6 BL 3.3V to turn backlight on, or PWM
* G 7 Gnd Ground

 

Code

You need https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library and https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-PCD8544-Nokia-5110-LCD-library

There is a snag, the PCD8544 will not compile, the code below points you in the right path to get the updated source files for the library, if not Adafruit_PCD8544_Nokia_5110_LCD_library
