320x240 3.5" Touch Screen Color TFT

Part Number: CFAF320240F-035T-TS

Description

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.

Additional Options

Add an EVE capable PCB to this display to speed up development.

320x240 EVE Accelerated SPI TFT
Part Number: CFAF320240F-035T-TS-A1-1

This 320x240 TFT bundle consists of a 3.5" display mounted on an EVE2 graphically accelerated PCA

The display includes a resistive touch screen, full color, and a 6 o'clock viewing angle. For more information about the display, including its detailed datasheet, check out the 320x240 3.5" Touch Screen Color TFT page.

The EVE board really makes the display shine. EVE (embedded video engine) is a cool technology from FTDI/Bridgetek that simplifies the process of displaying videos and text. All display, touch sensing, backlight, and audio features are controlled by the FTDI FT810 EVE which appears to host the MCU as a memory-mapped SPI device. The host MCU sends commands and data over the SPI serial protocol. The module can support both SPI and Quad-SPI. You can connect to the EVE board via a 30-pin FPC / ZIF connector.

If you're looking for an even simpler way to check out this display, look into the Eve 3.5" TFT Development Kit which includes everything you need to get started.

Need a breakout board? The EVE Breakout Board breaks out the zif connector to 0.1" headers for easy development.

Don't forget you'll need a cable to connect the display to the EVE Breakout Board. For that we have a 6-inch 30-pin FPC Cable and a 12-inch 30-pin FPC.

Part Change Notice #11027: The glass used in the parts list has been changed

Products Affected: CFAF320240F-035T, CFAF320240F-035T-TS
Date Issued: December 11, 2018
Summary: The glass used in the parts list has been changed
Reason: The change was made to improve performance and function.
Impact: Customers should not have to make any modifications.
Recommendation: Although tests at Crystalfontz have not found any difference in code requirements, it is recommended that customers perform their own tests to verify operation with their hardware.
Availability: The updated displays are available now.

Part Change Notice #10423: BOM change for LED backlight effective 2012/05/29

Products Affected: CFAF320240F-035T, CFAF320240F-035T-TS, CFAF320240F-035T-CB, CFAF320240F-035T-TS-CB
Date Issued: June 15, 2012
Summary: BOM change for LED backlight effective 2012/05/29
Description: 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.
Reason: Component end of life.
Impact: Low. The specifications for the LEDs used in the backlight still meet the specifications stated in our datasheets.
Availability: Current stock.
Price Change: N/A

Part Change Notice #10403: Glass characteristics change requiring single command initialization change for optimal contrast.

Products Affected: CFAF320240F-035T, CFAF320240F-035T-TS, CFAF320240F-035T-CB, CFAF320240F-035T-TS-CB
Date Issued: February 24, 2012
Summary: Glass characteristics change requiring single command initialization change for optimal contrast.
Description: PCN for CFAF320240F family of products due to a change in panel vendors.
Reason: In order to maintain uninterrupted supply of this module, we changed vendors for the LCD panel so that lead times would not be affected.
Impact: Because of the slightly different characteristics of the panel, a single command in the initialization of the module should be changed so that optimal contrast can be achieved.



No other changes are necessary.
Recommendation: Change the following registers from:




write_command(0x001E); // Power Control 5

write_data(0x00B7); // Page 53 of SSD2119 datasheet



to


write_command(0x001E); // Power Control 5

write_data(0x00BE); // Page 53 of SSD2119 datasheet



and contrast should be optimal for the display.
Availability: Immediately for non-touchscreen modules, with a cut-in for the modules with a touchscreen over the next several months.
Price Change: Pricing is not affected by this change.
For reference only. For design purposes, please use the specifications in the datasheet.
