Date Issued: September 30, 2016
Summary: CFA633 series Firmware revision 2.1 to 2.2
Last revision: 2.0
Description: The CFA633 series of advanced display modules will be changing from the current firmware v2.1 to v2.2. Design changes were made for backwards compatibility.
Reason: As part of our continuous improvement, firmware has been updated for use with updated hardware for the CFA633 series of advanced display modules.
Impact: Command 1 (0x01): Get Hardware & Firmware Version
This command will now report the following strings

Serial versions (-KS suffix): "CFA633:h2.1,s2v2"
USB version (-KU suffix): "CFA633:h2.1,u2v2"
Recommendation: CFA633 firmware version 2.2 is considered a fit and form replacement. Testing of new firmware is recommended when the new hardware version 2.1 is available.
Availability: CFA633 hardware v2.1 is scheduled to begin shipping Q1 2017 after current inventory of hardware v2.0 is depleted following FIFO standards. Engineering samples for testing / validation will be available during this same time frame.
Price Change: No price change is currently scheduled.

Part Change Notice #10729: CFA633 series Hardware revision 2.0 to 2.1

Date Issued: September 30, 2016
Summary: CFA633 series Hardware revision 2.0 to 2.1
Last revision: 2.0
Description: The CFA633 series of advanced display modules will be changing from the current hardware v2.0 to v2.1. Design changes were made for backwards compatibility.
Reason: As part of our continuous improvement, design changes have been made to the hardware of the CFA633 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. CFA633 hardware version 2.1 should replace previous version of the CFA633 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:
JPGPIO -> RJPGPIO
JP8 -> RJP8
JP2 -> RJP2
JP4 -> RJP4
JP6 -> RJP6
JP8 -> RJP8

-KU builds only:
JPUSBPER -> RJPUSBPWR

Solder jumper 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: CFA633 hardware version 2.1 is considered a fit and form replacement. Testing of new hardware is recommended when available.
Availability: CFA633 hardware v2.1 is scheduled to begin shipping Q1 2017 after current inventory of HW v2.0 is depleted following FIFO standards. Engineering samples for testing / validation will be available during this same time frame.
Price Change: No price change is currently scheduled.

Date Issued: July 1, 2015
Summary: Deprecation of "Drive Bay Kit Configurator" / New part numbers for drive bay kits.
Description: Starting August 1, 2015 the "Drive Bay Kit Configurator" located at https://www.crystalfontz.com/products/select_kit.html will no longer be functional for ordering one of our Serial or USB displays (CFA533, CFA631, CFA632, CFA633, CFA634, CFA635, and CFA735) in a bracket or SLED. This functionality is being moved to the Customize and Add to Cart process when checking out. This will allow for further customization by our customers to better fit their needs.

This change will eliminate the current "kits", but will add options not previously available such as pre-configured ATX functionality, and ALL the currently available interfaces will be orderable in a drive bay bracket or SLED.
The new part numbers will have the bracket / SLED and overlay type as a PREFIX to the configured part number. The choice for bracket / SLED to a display order will be via the cart options. Our CFA835 displays were introduced with these configuration options.
To see how the new options will look, and what the new part numbers will look like, please see one of our CFA835 parts:
https://www.crystalfontz.com/cart/addtocart.php?product_id=2277&qty=1
NOTE: The SLED is only available for the CFA635, CFA735, and CFA835 products.
Reason: As part of our continuous improvement process, we are integrating the ordering of displays in drive bay and SLED kits as part of the display ordering process.
Impact: Drive bay kits in their current configuration will no longer be available.
Recommendation: Place orders prior to 2015-08-01 for upcoming production needs via our website or by contacting our logistics department via email: sales@crystalfontz.com, or by calling 1-888-206-9720 (International call +1-509-892-1200).
After the 2015-08-01, please contact our engineering department via support@crystalfontz.com to assist you with ordering your bracket / SLED kits.
Availability: Starting 2015-08-01, the bracket and SLED options for our serial and USB display will be part of the ordering process for the displays
Price Change: Pricing bracket / SLED configurations will reflect manufacturing costs.

Summary: CFA633 Firmware 2v1
Last revision: v2.0
Description: As part of our continuous improvement process, Crystalfontz America, Inc. is releasing a new version of firmware for the 2v0 hardware based CFA633 family of intelligent modules.
Reason:

Fixes:


Command 10 (0x0A) Read 8 Bytes of LCD Memory.

Corrected the range of data[0] to reflect the native addressing of the LCD controller.



Command 11 (0x0B) Set LCD Cursor position.

Updated algorithm used for updating cursor location.



Corrects potential power-up corruption of boot state with the serial interface (-KS).




Enhancements:


Command 4 (0x04) Store current state as boot state.

Firmware compares stored stated and current state. Returns error if there is a difference.



Command 28 (0x1C) Set ATX Power switch functionality.

Added auto polarity switch. Improved pulse length functionality, and added feature to hold until system off during power down.




Updates:


Command 1 (0x01) Get Hardware & Firmware Version.

Modules with the serial interface, KS, will report: "CFA633:h2.0,s2v1"

Modules with the USB interface, KU, will report: "CFA633:h2.0,u2v1"
Impact: All CFA633 modules are impacted by the new firmware release.
Recommendation: It is recommended that all customers migrate to this new firmware release.
Availability:

Starting 2012-03-01 all standard modules will ship with this new version of the firmware.

Customers with Defined Part (DP) numbers will not have their modules shipped with this new firmware automatically. Please contact our engineering support team at support@crystalfontz.com.

Price Change: This update to the firmware does not affect the pricing of the CFA633 family of modules.

Part Change Notice #10298: Firmware Changes

Products Affected: CFA633-YYH-KS, CFA633-TMI-KS, CFA633-YYH-KU, CFA633-TMI-KU
Date Issued: November 23, 2010
Summary: Firmware Changes
Description: As announced in a PCN 10286 https://www.crystalfontz.com/news/pcn.php?id=10286 on 2010/10/06, the new CFA633 hardware v2.0 / Firmware version 2.0 ("s2.0" for serial modules and "u2.0" for USB modules) is fit, form, and function compatible with previous versions of the CFA633 series (hardware versions 1.5x).

Data Sheet. v0.1 was published 2010/11/22 for CFA633 hardware v2.0 / Firmware s2.0/u2.0. The Data Sheet includes descriptions of two command changes:

  1. In command 5 (0x05): Reboot CFA633, Reset Host, or Power Off Host, the module now knows if it is coming from a power up or from a reset. This in turn improves the bootup sequence. A note was added to describe the brief delay at bootup when more than one of the optional fans are on.


  2. In command 12 (0x0C): Set LCD Cursor Style, cursor style choice "3" changed from "3 = blinking block plus underscore" to "3 = blinking underscore cursor." The rate at which the cursor blinks is faster than in previous CFA633 versions (HW v1.x).


For information on additional changes, please see the Data Sheet’s Revision History. For a technical bulletin comparing CFA633 modules by version number, see PCN 10291 at https://www.crystalfontz.com/news/pcn.php?id=10291 published 2010/11/10.
