chipKIT Uno32 and Nokia 5110 LCD

I have just finished writing up a new tutorial on using the Nokia 5110 graphical LCD with the chipKIT platform. Nokia 5110 LCD was used in Nokia’s popular 5110 and 3310 model cell phones and is a very popular display among the Arduino community because of its low cost (~$3 on eBay). It is a 48×84 pixels matrix LCD driven by the low-power PCD8544 controller chip. It is powered by 3.3V and includes on-chip generation of LCD supply and bias voltages, thus requiring minimum external components for its operation. This tutorial explores the PCD8544 serial bus interface and its connection with chipKIT Uno32 board for displaying text, graphics, and bitmap.
