Part Change Notice #10405: Reactivation of the CFA635 family of modules with 1v2 hardware and supporting firmware.
|Products Affected:||CFA635-YYE-KS, CFA635-TMF-KS, CFA635-TFE-KS, CFA635-TMF-KL, CFA635-TFE-KL, CFA635-TFE-KU, CFA635-YYE-KL, XES635BK-TFE-KU, XES635BK-TMF-KU, XES635BK-YYE-KU, CFA635-TMF-KU, CFA635-YYE-KU|
|Date Issued:||March 20, 2012|
|Summary:||Reactivation of the CFA635 family of modules with 1v2 hardware and supporting firmware.|
|Description:||The CFA635 family of modules is being reactivated with a new LCD controller chip, the Rockworks RW1067. The changes to the CFA635 1v2 hardware are as follows:|
The only changes to the CFA635 family are to support the Rockworks RW1067 controller. There are no other physical changes to the CFA635.
|Reason:||When the CFA635 family was scheduled for End of Life (see PCN #10365) there was no replacement available for the Samsung S6A0073 LCD controller. The CFA735 family was designed as replacement for the CFA635, allowing a path for improved performance, graphics, and the ability for end users to write their own firmware to take advantage of the capabilities of the enhanced hardware.|
After the development of the CFA735 family, the RW1067 was developed as a replacement for the Samsung S6A0073 LCD controller for Crystalfontz America, Inc by Rockworks (China).
|Impact:||This announcement impacts all variants, interfaces, and part numbers that currently use the CFA635 family of modules. The CFA635 can continue to be used in current and future designs.|
|Recommendation:||Continue to order and build with the CFA635 as required by production schedules. Transition to the CFA635 1v2 hardware and supporting firmware should be a seamless process. Engineering samples for qualification for the revised CFA635 are scheduled to be available Q3 of 2012.|
Review / Update customer Defined Part custom firmware
New hardware and supporting firmware available for engineering samples
Estimated - Begin transition to 1v2 hardware as 1v1 hardware inventory is depleted
NOTE: We will not ship production orders of 1v2 hardware until the 1v1 inventory is depleted
Estimated - CFA635 1v1 hardware to be exhausted, transition to CFA635 1v2 hardware complete
|Price Change:||No scheduled price change at this time.|
