To improve user experience, this sharp looking 3.5-inch diagonal full color QVGA 320x240 TFT has a 4-wire resistive touchscreen. The 50-pin Flat Flexible Cable (FFC) mates with standard 0.5 mm ZIF sockets.
For quick prototype development, this display is available in a kit with a Crystalfontz breakout/carrier board.(See Under ADDITIONAL OPTIONS below.)
For this same TFT without a touch screen, see the CFAF320240F-035T display module.
Active Area is 3.5" diagonal, 70.08 (W) x 52.56 (H) mm (2.76" (W) x 2.07" (H)).
Choose from several interface modes to host:
8-bit, 9-bit, 16-bit, and 18-bit parallel (8080 or 6800).
As an option, you can order this TFT pre-assembled onto a breakout/carrier board. The board allows easy prototyping through its 0.1" headers. You can also include the carrier board in your end product to simplify construction and assembly. The carrier board contains a constant-current switching LED driver. The PCB is sized to fit neatly within the outline of the display, with a total weight of 55 grams.
We believe in open source hardware designs for Crystalfontz carrier boards and development kits. Under the Datasheets & Files tab is a downloadable zip file that contains everything you need to manufacture your own carrier boards: Gerber files, PADs source schematic and layout, and full BOM.
The LEDs used in the backlight for the CFAF320240F-035 family of TFT LCD modules and any assemblies using the CFAF320240F-035 family of TFT LCD modules produced from 2011-03 to 2011-11 is no longer available. To avoid any interruption in supply for our customers, we have gone back to using the LEDs which were in the backlight assembly prior to that point. The LEDs now used are more toward the blue end of the spectrum, whereas the LEDs used for the March-November 2011 period were toward the red end of the spectrum. There may be a difference in light output, but still in the specified range from our datasheet.
Component end of life.
Low. The specifications for the LEDs used in the backlight still meet the specifications stated in our datasheets.
Part Change Notice #10403: Glass characteristics change requiring single command initialization change for optimal contrast.
