Well, I think adapter is more appropriate, but let's call it a booster pack. There is nothing fancy, few connection options and a reset RC.  

Here is the code (still needs some work like handling of new line, home, row/col tracking, etc.)   5510_2xx3_UART.c #include "msp430.h" #include "PCD8544.h" typedef unsigned char u_char; typede

Hi   I posted a blog entry about your display booster pack.   http://rubines.blogspot.co.at/2013/07/nokia-5110-booste-pack.html   Cheers Rubi

I have seen 4 different pinout/connector locations for those BOBs. If you buy from eBay be aware you may not get exactly what is shown in the picture.


The parts on the board vary too. For example the LED backlight may go directly to the header pin, or have a single resistor for all LEDs, or a resistor for each LED, and in some cases a resistor for each LED and a transistor.

Schematic for the new board. Note that some of the connections have changed. There's also backlight resistor which can be shorted (couple of white LEDs blew on one of my 5110s so I decided to add it just in case.)

If you solder MCU and headers, make sure you remove MCU from the LaunchPad when plugging it in for programming.
