ST7565 LCD Interfacing with MSP430 microcontroller

ST7565 LCD Interfacing with MSP430 microcontroller
Displaying content on a normal alphanumeric display is very limited ,we have to be limited with the font size and we can’t draw any graphics also. but convention Graphics lcd are really very expensive so here is the solution, you can use ST7565 monochrome  LCD to display your large font text and graphics . the reason behind using this LCD is ,it is really very cheap and can be powered with 3 volts supply. so it is really good for battery powered application.

Project Description 

however you can use almost any microcontroller to display content on this LCD, may be that micro controller is PIC , AVR or MSP430 , but in this demonstration we will be using Microchip MSP430G2211 Microcontroller from Texas Instrument .

The software program for this project will be written in Code composer studio 5.1, This LCD has a resolution of 132×65 pixel.

ST7565 Graphical LCD uses ST7565 Controller chip From Sitronix. It is a chip-on glass(COG) with  at least 7 pin connector on LCD. but for backlit you may also have dedicated pin.  You can refer to its datasheet for more information about this controller.
