Product Update #11039: End-of-Life Notification

Product Affected: CFAH1602L-NFG-JT
Date Issued: February 6, 2019
Summary: End-of-Life Notification
Description: The CFAH1602L-NFG-JT is being set to End-of-Life.
Reason: The yearly sales are too low to satisfy the Minimum Order Quantity requirements from our partner factory.
Impact: Future orders should consider using one of the other modules in the CFAHG1602L series.
Recommendation: Customers should consider using other modules in the CFAH1602L series such as CFAH1602L-GGH-JT, CFAH1602L-TGH-JT, or CFAH1602L-YYH-JT.

All of these modules will function in place of the CFAH1602L-NFG-JT if the backlight is not powered.
Availability: This module will not be available once current stock is depleted.

Product Update #10666: CFAH1602L-NFH-JT being replaced by CFAH1602L-NFG-JT

Products Affected: CFAH1602L-NFH-JT, CFAH1602L-NFG-JT
Date Issued: July 21, 2015
Summary: CFAH1602L-NFH-JT being replaced by CFAH1602L-NFG-JT
Description: The CFAH1602L-NFH-JT no longer available, and is being replaced by the CFAH1602L-NFG-JT to correctly identify the part as reflective.
Reason: Due to a typing error, we have been selling the “CFAH1602L-NFG-JT” as a “CFAH1602L-NFH-JT”. This mistake has now been corrected. Changing the “H” to “G” indicates that this display module has a reflective polarizer, not a transflective polarizer. This display has always had a reflective polarizer.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Impact: There is NO CHANGE to the part other than the part number.
Recommendation: Order the CFAH1602L-NFG-JT as an exact replacement to the CFAH1602L-NFH-JT.
Availability: CFAH1602L-NFH-JT is now shipping as CFAH1602L-NFG-JT.
Price Change: There is no price change associated with the part number change.
