320x480 Parallel Color TFT with Touch Screen

Part Number: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS

The CFAF320480C4-035T-TS is a 3.5" diagonal 320x480 TFT with full color graphics and a 4-wire analog touch screen.


  • Requires only a single source 3v for both power and logic.
  • The display has built-in Himax HX8357-B or compatible LCD display controller.
  • The 50-pin FPC mates with standard 0.5mm ZIF sockets such as HFJ150CT-ND and HFK150CT-ND, both available from Digi-Key.
  • The white LED backlight has anode (A,+) and cathode (K,-) pins brought out on the FPC.
  • Operating temperature range from -20°C to +70°C.

Need a non-touch screen version? The CFAF320480C4-035T offers the same display module without touch screen. It is slightly thinner and less expensive.

Product Update #10676: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS End of Life

Product Affected: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS
Date Issued: October 21, 2015
Summary: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS End of Life
Description: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS is no longer available as a standard part. It has been replaced by CFAF320480C5-035T-TS.
Reason: As part of our continuous improvement, the touch panel has been increased in size to support better manufacturability.
Impact: Projects designed to use CFAF320480C4-035T-TS should only have issues using the CFAF320480C5-035T-TS if the enclosure takes into account the touch panel dimensions.
Recommendation: Purchase sample of CFAF320480C5-035T-TS to verify fit.
Availability: CFAF320480C4-035T-TS is EOL effective 2015-10-20
