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.

Product Update #10578: CFAH1602L modules changing to black bezel

Products Affected: CFAH1602L-TGH-JT, CFAH1602L-YYH-JT, CFAH1602L-NFH-JT
Date Issued: December 18, 2013
Summary: CFAH1602L modules changing to black bezel
Description: The CFAH1602L family of character LCD modules has been manufactured with a silver bezel. Newly manufactured modules will now have a black painted bezel.
This is a cosmetic change only.
Reason: Reduced manufacturing costs.
Impact: If bezel is exposed in design, the black will be visible. Exposed bezel is not a recommended design.
Recommendation: Order a sample CFAH1602L with a new bezel to see if it effects manufacturability.
Availability: Modules with new Black Bezel will start shipping with orders as soon as existing stock of silver bezel is exhausted.
Change is effect 2013-12-17
Price Change: There is no price change.
