128x64 Low Power Backlit LCD

Part Number: CFAG12864Q1-TFH

A graphic LCD display with 128x64 dark pixels on a light gray background. This display is approximately 2.9" on the diagonal but requires less than 1mA to drive the display. The white LED backlight is driven by separate inputs on the frame and can be powered off to maintain the lowest possible power requirements, or powered on to make this display visible in dark environments. This display is a great choice for power-conscious designs that need to be seen in sunlight and in dark rooms.

The integrated ST7567 LCD controller supports communications in SPI or 8-bit parallel (either 6800 or 8080).

Prefer a different color? We also offer this display in light (near white) pixels on a blue background. Other sizes of graphic LCDs are also available.

To get started, download the free sample code and detailed datasheet in the Datasheets & Files section.

Compatible ZIF sockets (34-pin, 0.5 mm) are: 34 Position, 0.50mm Pitch. A carrier board for this display is also available.

This display replaced the CFAO12864D3-TFH. See the PCN for more information.

Additional Options

Purchase this display on an Arduino shield or as a complete development kit.

Graphic LCD Development Kit
Part Number: CFAG12864Q1-TFH-E1-2

This fully functional graphic LCD kit includes an LCD shield mounted on an Arduino Uno-style controller. Simply plug the kit into a power source (such as your computer) with the included cable for a demonstration. Then use the demo code as a jumping off point for your project.

This graphic LCD screen is plenty large for readable text and small enough to integrate into a hand held product.

This kit is also available with a white on blue graphic display, or the graphic display and carrier board are available without the Seeeduino.

The carrier board hardware design, module datasheet, and demonstration code are all available under the Datasheets & Files section of the web page. If you have any questions, please contact our knowledgeable and friendly support staff by email, phone, or chat.

Sunlight Readable Graphic LCD Arduino Module
Part Number: CFAG12864Q1-TFH-E1

This graphic LCD module acts as a shield for Arduino Uno-style microcontrollers. The pins on the carrier board match up to the Arduino Uno's ports, so the module simply presses on and is fully and correctly connected. Plus, this carrier board is able to be connected to either a 3.3v logic level or a 5v logic level device. (Read our blog post if you have questions about logic level.)

The carrier board also includes pads for a 2x10 tenth-inch header, offering flexibility in how you incorporate the display into your project.

This module is also available with a white-on-blue graphic display, or as a fully built kit with an included Seeeduino (Arduino Uno clone) loaded with code to demonstrate the graphic display.

The hardware design of this carrier board is open source. Under the Datasheets & Files tab is a downloadable zip file that contains everything you need to manufacture your own boards: Gerber files, PADs source schematic and layout, and full BOM. If you have any questions, please contact our knowledgeable and friendly support staff by email, phone, or chat.
