Arduino clock with NOKIA 5110 LCD and DS1307 RTC

This Arduino tutorial shows how to make a DIY real time clock using DS1307 chip where time and date are displayed on Nokia 5110 (Nokia 3310) LCD. This LCD has a maximum resolution of 84 x 48 pixel.
In the circuit there will be two push buttons for adjusting the time and the date of our real time clock.

Arduino clock with NOKIA 5110 LCD and DS1307 circuit:
The following image shows project circuit schematic diagram.

The two push buttons B1 and B2 are for setting time and date. The two buttons are connected to Arduino pin 9 and pin 8 respectively for B1 and B2.

Arduino clock with NOKIA 5110 LCD and DS1307 code:
The Arduino code below doesn’t use any library for the DS1307 RTC chip.

The following Arduino code requires 2 libraries from Adafruit Industries:
The first library is a driver for the Nokia 5110 LCD (PCD8544 controller) which can be installed from Arduino IDE library manager (Sketch —> Include Library —> Manage Libraries …, in the search box write “nokia” and install the one from Adafruit).

The second library is Adafruit graphics library which can be installed also from Arduino IDE library manager.

The previous 2 libraries can also be installed manually, download links are below:
Adafruit Nokia 5110 LCD library   —->  direct link
Adafruit graphics library             —->  direct link

After the download, go to Arduino IDE —> Sketch —> Include Library —> Add .ZIP Library … and browse for the .zip file (previously downloaded).
The same thing for the other library file.

In the code there are total of 4 libraries, they’re included in the code as follows:

And the two push buttons are defined in the code as shown below:

The following video shows Proteus simulation of the project (note that simulation circuit is not the same as real hardware circuit, hardware circuit diagram is shown above):

Proteus simulation file download link is below, use version 8.6 or later to open it:
