Part Change Notice #10667

Products Affected: CFA921-TS Graphic TFT, CFA-921-TS1, CFA-921-TS2, CFA-921-TS5, CFA-921-TS6
Date Issued: July 22, 2015
Summary: CFA-921 revised for backlight and ethernet corrections
Description: Backlight driver schematic update and roll-up of R_MDIO change from Product Update #10588.
Reason: R_MDIO had been unpopulated initially, but corrected by Product Update #10588. Backlight driver schematic had two resistors swapped, making the backlight not able to be set to 0%.
Impact: Affects all CFA921 variants. No change will be required on the part of any users.
Recommendation: Swap RBL2 and RBL3 on product shipped prior to 2015-07-21 if backlight behavior is inappropriate for your application.
Availability: Immediate.
Price Change: None.

Product Update #10588

Products Affected: CFA10037, CFA10037-1, CFA10037-2, CFA921-TS Graphic TFT, CFA920-TS Graphic TFT, CFA10037-5, CFA10037-6, CFA-920-TS1, CFA-920-TS2, CFA-920-TS5, CFA-920-TS6, CFA-921-TS1, CFA-921-TS2, CFA-921-TS5, CFA-921-TS6
Date Issued: May 22, 2014
Summary: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor
Description: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor so that the device gets properly set up by Linux on start-up.
Reason: MDIO times out before it can be detected.
Recommendation: 1. Install 1.5k pull-up to R_MDIO.
