GUI options for embedded design: specifics

Specific ideas for interfaces built around the Arduino Uno.

Unless otherwise noted, all of the following require one of the following:

  • tactile switches
  • capacitive switches using an IC.

Small OLEDs

  • TODO

Small 1.8" or 1.44" TFT

Character LCD

LED matrix

Graphic LCD

Nokia 5110

  • Around \$2 to \$3 from China (plus shipping).
  • About 1.33“ diagonal size.
  • SparkFun's page has good info.
  • The actual LCD parts are surplus/pulls from phones.
  • my experience with one of these points to potential reliability issues. :-(

128x64

  • \$12 (less in quantity or if you want to slum it with STN from China) + switches
  • Bezel makes things potentially ugly.
  • Dated?
  • Example cheap STN from China, 128×64 ST7920: \$4.90 + \$1.99
  • East Rising FSTN ERM12864FS-6, 2.9” 128×64 SPI ST7920 black on white: \$8.41 + \$4.05
  • East Rising STN ERM12864SBS-6 2.9“ 128×64 SPI ST7920 white on blue: \$11.56
  • East Rising ERC12864FS-655, 2.8” 128×64 SPI ST7920 black on white w/ opt. touchscreen: \$6.26 + \$4.05
  • Lots of 128×64 OLED options as well, e.g. this 2.42" SPI for \$19.77 + \$1.85 or this for \$19.75 or this for \$26.95.

Nextion

  • \$16 + shipping and up
  • Tact switches possibly not required — but only the enhanced 7“ has capacitive touch.
  • Lots of graphic image generation time needed (“style by image,” not “style by text”).
  • 2.4" basic 320×240: \$16.40
  • 2.4" enhanced 320×240: \$20.40
  • 2.8" basic 320×240: \$18.40
  • 2.8" enhanced 320×240: \$22.40
  • 3.2" basic 400×240: \$22.40
  • 3.5" basic 480×320: \$27.40
  • 4.3" basic 480×272: \$44.90

ePaper

Larger color LCD

  • The UNO is probably too slow for anything larger than 200×200 pixels.
