If you’re wanting to use a Memory LCD with an Arduino, there are at least four software libraries to choose from. In no particular order, they are: The Rengineer’s Memory LCD library: https://github.com/TheRengineer/MemoryLcd Supports drawing basic shapes and printing bit map images. You may have to replace instances of ‘prog_uchar’ in the code with byte […]
Here’s a couple of videos of the small Memory LCD Breakout Board running a little demo I’ve written to show off it’s capabilities. The first video is a simple, static recording of the complete demo sequence, the second video moves the camera around in an attempt to illustrate the reflective qualities of the particular model […]
I’ve now assembled a complete example of each type of breakout board. The small board can hold either a 96×96 or a 128×128 pixel display. And the large board holds the 400×240 pixel Memory LCD. More details to follow on Sunday.

My big Mouser order containing all the SMD parts arrived last week and I’m finalising a Farnell order this afternoon for all the […]
UPDATE: The breakout boards are now for sale! I’ve finally finished designing a couple of breakout boards for the lovely Sharp Memory LCDs and am now busy getting quotes for the manufacture of an initial batch of them from a small number of UK based PCB manufacturers. Memory LCDs are the type of ultra low-power, […]
