Products Affected: CFA533-YYH-KS, CFA533-YYH-KU, CFA533-TMI-KS, CFA533-TMI-KU, CFA533-YYH-KL, CFA533-TMI-KL, CFA533-YYH-KC, CFA533-TMI-KC, CFA533-TFH-KU, CFA533-TFH-KS, CFA533-TFH-KL, CFA533-TFH-KC
Date Issued: July 8, 2016
Summary: CFA533 series Hardware revision 1.1 to 1.4
Last revision: 1.1
Description: The CFA533 series of advanced display modules will be changing from the current hardware version 1.1 to version 1.4. Design changes were made for backwards compatibility. Hardware version 1.4 requires firmware version 1.2 or newer.
Reason: As part of our continuous improvement, design changes have been made to the hardware of the CFA533 series of advanced display modules for improved manufacturability, improved quality, and a lower current profile.
Impact: Factory default configuration has no functional changes. Standard and custom configurations are not affected by the new hardware layout. CFA533 hardware version 1.4 should replace the previous version of the CFA533 with no physical changes and is considered a fit and form replacement.

Six 0 ohm resistors have been added as factory default for closing the following jumpers:
JPGPIO1 -> RJPGPIO1
JPUSBPWR -> RJPUSBPWR
JP2 -> RJP2
JP4 -> RJP4
JP6 -> RJP6
JP8 -> RJP8

Solder jumpers are still in place for configuration after jumper resistor removed. Jumpers will appear open. Configuration changes not performed by Crystalfontz America, Inc. will need to make note of this manufacturing change.
Recommendation: CFA533 hardware version 1.4 is considered a fit and form replacement. Testing of new hardware is recommended when available.
Availability: CFA533 hardware version 1.4 should begin shipping Q4 2016.
Engineering samples for testing / validation will be available during this same time frame.
Price Change: No price change is currently scheduled.
