CFA735-TFK-KT

CFA735-TFK-KT photo
  • LED backlit 20x4 LCD
  • Integrated LED backlit 6-button translucent silicon keypad with screened legend
  • Four bicolor (red + green) LEDs. The LEDs’ brightness can controlled by the host software, which allows mixing the LEDs to produce other colors (yellow and orange)
  • Three color options:
    • Yellow-green backlit positive mode LCD, yellow/green keypad backlight ("YYK")
    • White backlit negative mode LCD, blue keypad backlight ("TML")
    • White backlit positive mode LCD, white keypad backlight ("TFK")
  • Fully decoded keypad: any key combination is valid and unique
  • LCD characters are contiguous in both X and Y directions to allow the host software to display "gapless" bar graphs in horizontal or vertical directions
  • Serial and USB interfaces (115200 baud equivalent throughput)
    • KT supports full swing RS-232 with CFARS-232 daughter board and USB simultaneously
    • KR supports 0-5v logic level serial and USB simultaneously
  • Robust packet based communications protocol with 16-bit CRC
  • Compact size: fits in a 1U rack mount case (37.5mm overall height)
  • ATX power supply control functionality allows the buttons on the CFA735 to replace the "power" and "reset" buttons on your system, simplifying your front panel design (requires additional cables or hardware).
  • Built-in microcontroller with field-upgradeable firmware
  • Non-volatile memory capability ("EEPROM"):
    • Customize the "power-on" display and LED settings
    • 16-byte "scratch" register for storing IP, netmask, system serial number
  • Run STM32 embedded applications on the CFA735 hardware.
  • Open source firmware for CFA735 displays allows you to customize and write/run your own user code.

Date Issued: August 23, 2012
Summary: Hardware version update from 0vA to 1v0.
Last revision: 0vA
Description: Manufacturer was changed for the micro-USB connector and microSD card socket.
Reason: As generally occurs in the process between Pilot and Production Release, product/process improvements were identified and implemented. These improvements in manufacturability are reflected in the product between hardware versions 0vA and 1v0. They do not represent a form, fit or function change.
Impact: String returned by command 1 (get HW and FW version) will reflect the new hardware version 1v0: "CFA735:h1v0,f0vB" will now be the response when queried using command 1.
Recommendation: If the end-user application relies on the firmware string response being the same as previous versions, it will need to be changed to accept the new response to command 1.
Availability: As product becomes available, estimated completion by Q2 2013.
Price Change: N/A

Date Issued: February 3, 2012
Summary: CFA735 family firmware 0vB
Last revision: 0vA
Description: As part of our continuous improvement process, a new version of the CFA735 firmware is being released to address possible functional and performance issues.
Reason: Corrects the RAM Layout for the STM32F103RC microcontroller.
Impact: Low.
Recommendation: We are recommending that all CFA735 modules be updated to 0vB firmware as soon as possible.

NOTE: 0vB firmware requires 0vA hardware. See PCN 10400.
Availability: CFA735 modules shipped from Crystalfontz America Inc, on or after 2012-02-06
Price Change: This firmware update does not effect the pricing of the CFA735 family.

Date Issued: January 31, 2012
Summary: CFA735 family hardware 0vA
Last revision: 0v9
Description: As part of our continuous improvement process, a new version of the CFA735 hardware is being released to address functional and performance issues.

There is a supporting firmware revision for this hardware release. See PCN 10399.
Reason: A 1MΩ 0603 resistor has been added at RC2 in support of fixing and extraneous byte received by the host when using the serial interface after a module reset. There is additional support for this fix in firmware 0vA.
Impact: All CFA735 family modules are affected with this hardware update.
Recommendation: All CFA735 modules that use the serial interface or GPIO lines should update to the new 0vA hardware and supporting firmware.

If you require assistance loading the 0603 1MΩ resistor in RC2, please contact support@crystalfontz.com.
Availability: Hardware 0vA and supporting firmware is shipping as standard release as of 2012/01/30.
Price Change: No price change.

Date Issued: January 31, 2012
Summary: CFA735 family firmware 0vA
Last revision: 0v9
Description: As part of our continuous improvement process, a new version of the CFA735 firmware is being released to address functional and performance issues.

There is a supporting hardware revision for this firmware release. See PCN 10400.
Reason:

  1. Correct Command 0x9 Data[0] to only accept 0-7 as the index for the custom characters. In 0v9 0-15 were valid but 8-15 were references to 0-7 respectively.

  2. Fix H1 Pins not functioning when used as GPIOs

  3. Fix extraneous byte received by the host when using the serial interface after a module reset. For this fix to be fully effective the module requires a 1 MΩ 0603 resistor at RC2 (which is standard in the 0vA hardware).

Impact: All CFA735 family modules are affected with this firmware update.


Firmware version 0vA requires supporting hardware version 0vA.
Recommendation: All CFA735 modules that use the serial interface or GPIO lines should update to the new 0vA firmware and supporting hardware.

If you require assistance loading the 0603 1MΩ resistor in RC2, please contact support@crystalfontz.com.
Availability: Firmware 0vA and supporting hardware is shipping as standard release as of 2012/01/30.
Price Change: No price change.
