128x64 Backlit Low Power LCD

Part Number: CFAG12864U3-TFH

This light, thin, low-power graphic LCD display is an LED-backlit, 128x64 graphic display module. It's visible in all lighting situations, from darkness, normal office lighting, and up to bright sunlight. Making it an excellent daylight-readable LCD solution.

Since 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 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.

In addition to the 128x64 monochrome graphics array, there is a row of icons across the top of the display, that can easily be turned on and off.

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 (CFAG12864U3-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
  • Low power consumption
  • Perfect in handheld, battery operated devices
  • 4-wire, 8-bit SPI or 8-bit parallel interface
Is this small monochrome lcd display still too big? We have the CFAG12864T3-TFH, which is a similar display, but smaller in physical dimensions.

We also offer a higher density and 4-color grayscale display with the same outline dimensions as this display.

This display is the suggested replacement for the CFAG12864U1-TFH and the CFAG12864U2-TFH which are no longer in production.

128x64 Transflective Backlit LCD Development Kit
Part Number: CFAG12864U3-TFH-E1-2

This LCD development kit includes a 128x64 backlit low power LCD mounted to a custom adapter board. We'll wire it up to a Seeeduino 4.2 and load a demonstration sketch so when the kit arrives it simply needs to be plugged in to begin a demonstration.

The display is a graphic monochrome LCD with an external backlight frame. The LCD 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 means no soldering is required to wire up with display.

Use this kit to evaluate the CFAG12864U3-TFH and/or the CFAG12864U3-TFH-E1-1 for your product, or provides a great jumping off point for creating a project with this display.

128x64 Monochrome Transflective Backlit LCD Module
Part Number: CFAG12864U3-TFH-E1-1

Use this LCD display module to easily embed this 128x64 Low Power Backlit LCD into your project or to begin developing with the display. The included adapter board breaks the display's ZIF tail out into a 16 pin 0.1" header.

The adapter board folds behind the backlight frame, and includes two mounting standoffs, making this a clean way to both connect to the display and mount it into your design. Use this display module to validate the CFAG12864U3-TFH, or integrated it into your final design.

This transflective graphic LCD display is thin, light, and low power. The LED backlight only needs to be used to read the display in dim or dark environments. Because this is an FSTN display, the graphics are clearly legible in sunlight. This display is well suited for compact hand-held devices and other low-power applications.

A pin compatible low power transflective LCD display module without a backlight is also available.

Features of this Display Module

  • Ultra-Low power consumption
  • White LED backlight
  • 0.1" header (2.54 mm) for easy connections
  • 2x 2-56 threaded mounting standoffs
  • Built-in Sitronix ST7565P controller
  • Perfect for handheld, battery operated devices
  • Simple 4-wire SPI or 8-bit parallel interface
