We have had some reports of reduced lifetime of the white LED backlight of the CFAG12864B series.
Until the root cause of the reduced lifetime is determined and corrected, we are reducing the recommended maximum backlight current from 60mA to 45mA, and decreasing the expected lifetime from 10K hours to 5K hours for all modules with white LED backlights in this series. We are actively pursuing a revised backlight design that will ensure better lifetime. We will issue an updated Parts Change Notification when the new modules are shipping. At that time, the backlight lifetime specifications in this Data Sheet will be updated to reflect the new design.
