Ahh, the electronics workbench – shrine to the electron, the diode, the transistor, the soldering pencil and flux pen.
You can learn a lot about someone by looking at their workspace. Note the way that they store components (in pullout drawers or plastic organizers?), hang test leads (on hooks or wire racks, or on a nail?), and keep spools of wire at the ready for repairs and new projects.
A look at someone’e electronics workbench gives you a small glimpse into what is usually a fairly personal space – a space where visions become reality and electronics projects are brought to life.
While there are quite a few electronics workbenches on flickr, I determined after a quick search that there had been no attempt to bring all of these glimpses into a hobbyist or engineer’s soul together into one place.
It’s open to everyone, so if you’ve got photos of your own bench, add it to the group!

The project described below demonstrates the usage of LCD graphical display with the help of available demo source codes.
The LCD in the first place is a tricky device, first of all you need separate power for the back light because of the higher voltage, so the author used a break-out board from www.sparkfun.com (Nokia 6100 LCD including breakout board), this board has built in a DC/DC converter for boosting the voltage, you only need one 3.3V power source.
