Video player using Nokia color LCD and 8 bit AVR

Posted on Monday, July 2nd, 2012 in AVR, LCD, open source by the machinegeek


Vinod S. writes about his latest project, a video player using a Nokia color LCD, ATmega32 and SD card.

“I am introducing my new video player made using an ATmega32 microcontroller and Nokia color LCD. I got a 65K color LCD from an old Nokia 6030 mobile phone. I directly soldered 10 thin enameled copper wire from the 0.5 cm square area of the thin flexible PCB of the LCD to a berg strip fixed on another board. For me it was the most difficult part of this project because I don’t have any tiny tip soldering iron and an LCD connector (5×2) socket with me. After that I interfaced the LCD with atmega32 via SPI. Then initialized the LCD and displayed some color patterns and confirmed the LCD is working.”
