In order to keep this display in production over the long term, we are revising it to the CFA240320E0-024SN. Any backorders placed now will be fulfilled with the new part when it becomes available. Please contact with any questions.

2.4" Sunlight Readable EVE TFT Display

Part Number: CFAF240320A0-024SN-A1-1

This TFT EVE module simplifies development with this 2.4" Full-Color TFT Display. The EVE FT811 chip controls the display using a display list to easily display complex graphics. The display is sunlight readable, full color, and has a wide viewing angle, so it's a great choice for inside or outside.

The PCB handles the TFT display backlight voltage, making this display module perfect for hand-held applications. Read more about how the EVE chip can help your product development on our blog.

Key Features:
  • Graphics accelerating FT811 chip for easy graphics control
  • Sunlight Readable (850 nits)
  • SPI interface
  • IPS
  • Full color TFT (262k colors)
  • 2.4" diagonal active area
  • 4x 2-56 threaded mounting stand offs
EVE Features:
  • Supports multiple widgets for simplified design implementation
  • Recognize touch tags and track touch movement
  • Enhanced sketch processing
  • Anti-aliasing of primitive displayed objects for higher-quality graphics
  • Graphical effects such as alpha-blending, shadows, transitions, wipes, etc.
  • Programmable interrupt controller provides interrupts to host MCU
  • Support playback of motion-JPEG encoded AVI videos
  • Mono audio channel output with wave playback and built-in sound synthesizer
  • PWM output for display backlight dimming control

Part Change Notice #11100: Board Revision

Products Affected: CFAF240320A0-024SC-A1-1, CFAF240320A0-024SC-A1-2, CFAF240320A0-024SN-A1-1, CFAF240320A0-024SN-A1-2
Date Issued: August 17, 2021
Summary: Board Revision
Description: The board is being revised to support a different NXP processor as the helper processor on the board. This will not affect the functionality of the module and is a drop-in replacement.

Hardware Version Changes: h0v1 to h0v2
Firmware Version: N/A
Reason: Due to the ongoing worldwide component shortage, we are unable to source the current processor until 2023. Instead of having a year-long lead time for our product, we are designing in a readily available processor.
Availability: The new version will be available in Q4 of 2021.
For reference only. For design purposes, please use the specifications in the datasheet.
