Small Backlit Sunlight Readable LCD

Part Number: CFAG12864T3-TFH

This 128x64 graphic LCD display module (CFAG12864T3-TFH) is thin, light, low-power, and LED backlit. This display is visible in all lighting situations, from darkness, normal office lighting, and even bright sunlight, making it an excellent sunlight/daylight readable LCD solution.

This graphic LCD is a transflective, positive-mode display, the backlight may be turned off when there is sufficient ambient light to read the display. Turning the backlight off will further reduce the already super-low power consumption. This display is well suited for compact hand-held devices, or any application where a lot of display in a very small area is needed.

This LCD display has an integrated controller and voltage generating components mounted on the flexible tail. The tail connects to a standard 18-conductor 0.5mm pitch ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector:

This monochrome graphic LCD display is also available in a non-backlit version (CFAG12864T3-NFH).

  • Thin and light TAB construction with white LED backlight
  • Wide temperature range: -20°C to 70°C (-4°F to 158°F)
  • Built-in Sitronix ST7565P controller
  • Ultra-Low power consumption
  • Perfect for handheld, battery operated devices
  • Simple 4-wire, 8-bit SPI or 8-bit parallel interface

This display is the recommended replacement for the CFAG12864T2-TFH which are no longer in production. It is not an exact replacement, please consider ordering a sample to determine if it will work for you.

Small Backlit Monochrome LCD Dev Kit
Part Number: CFAG12864T3-TFH-E1-2

A development kit for this small backlit sunlight readable display which includes an adapter board wired to a Seeeduino running a demonstration. All that's needed to see the display working is to plug the Seeeduino into a power supply using the included USB cable.

The CFAG12864T3-TFH is a small, monochrome, graphic LCD with an external backlight frame. The display is extremely low power and only requires the backlight when viewed in the dark. The adapter board breaks the display's ZIF tail out to a 0.1" header which makes integrating this display easy without any required soldering.

This kit makes it easy for to evaluate the CFAG12864T3-TFH and/or the CFAG12864T3-TFH-E1-1 for your product, or provides a great jumping off point for creating a project with this display.

128x64 Backlit Transflective LCD with Breakout Board
Part Number: CFAG12864T3-TFH-E1-1

Grab this LCD display module to quickly and easily start using this small monochrome LCD. The included adapter board breaks the display's ZIF tail out into a 16 pin 0.1" header.

The adapter board fits inside the backlight frame, making this a neat way to handle interfacing with the display. Use this display module to validate the CFAG12864T3-TFH, or integrated it into your final design. The adapter board also includes two 2-56 threaded standoffs to simplify mounting the display module in your final enclosure design.

The included CFAG12864T3-TFH thin, light, and low power. The LED backlight only needs to be used when the display needs to be read in dim or dark environments. Because this is an STN display, the graphics clearly readable in sunlight. This display is well suited for compact hand-held devices and other low-power applications.

This transflective monochrome graphic LCD display module is also available in a non-backlit version (CFAG12864T3-NFH-E1-1).

Features of this Display Module
