Summary: SunPlus Controller Change
Description: The parts listed currently use a SunPlus SPLC7800D Controller Chip. This controller is being discontinued by the manufacturer. The part will be replaced by a Sitronix ST7066U controller. A PCB revision will be made as part of the change to the new controller chip.
Reason: The SunPlus SPLC7800 Controller is EOL. The new controller is a different size package with different pinouts.
Impact: There should be no impact to users.
Recommendation: It is highly recommended that users of the displays with the SunPlus controller verify that there are no operational differences in the systems where they are used.
Availability: Last time buys of the current parts may be made until November 15, 2017, depending upon the availability of the SunPlus Controller.
Price Change: To be determined when the parts with the Sitronix controllers are available.
Response: Last time buys are available until 11/17/2017
