In order to keep this display in production over the long term, we are revising it to a new part number. Any backorders placed now will be fulfilled with the new part when it becomes available. Please contact support with any questions.
This display module is made up of a neat 3.9" display with a wide aspect ratio mounted to an accelerator board that includes and FTDI/BridgeTek Embedded Video Engine (EVE) chip. The accelerator board is specifically designed for the display, resulting in a nice fit, perfect to be used in any project.
This bar-type display module is great for rack-mount applications and fits in a 1U rack. Its unusual shape lends itself to a wide variety of applications. This TFT module has rear-facing pem-nuts so it's easy to secure in an enclosure.

Need a complete Seeeduino/Arduino development kit that includes this display module, the EVE breakout board, a Seeeduino, and the necessary connectors? Check out the 480x128 EVE bar-type development kit.
The capacitive touch controller used with this display is being changed to a more readily available controller. The part number for the replacement part is CFAF480128A1-039TC. The display itself is not changing.
To prepare for chip shortages, higher MOQs, and cost increases, Crystalfontz has determined to change the touch panel to a touch panel with a different touch controller.

Product Update #11065: Firmware update.
June 11, 2020
The change is firmware only and the only change is to turn the backlight off until after the initialization of the display.
If power is provided to the display the backlight is on until the initialization is sent. We have modified the firmware so the display stays off until the end-user has the ability to control the backlight.
