Nokia LCD Backpack v1.0 free PCB build

Posted on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012 in builds by DP

Phalox built a Nokia LCD Backpack free PCB. This is a small color display for which we made a USB controllable backpack. Unfortunately we were never able to source the screens themselves so this project was discontinued, and the boards sold at cost.

Today I got already half of the components together to build this project. I was lucky enough to scavenge some LCD’s from old nokia phones, but the connector was a bigger problem! I had to remove that one from the original PCB. A hot air gun did the trick (but it was hard not to damage the connector).

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.
