16x2 Blue Character OLED Module

Part Number: CFAL1602C-B

Beautiful Blue Character OLED, 4-Bit/8-Bit Parallel

The OLED technology of the blue-on-black CFAL1602C-B provides a striking, high contrast visual appearance that stays consistent from -40°C to 80°C (-40°F to 176°F). Since OLEDs are emissive, there is no backlight, resulting in a thinner package that is ideal when you need a reliable 16x2 character display and space is at a premium. The modern look of the CFAL1602C-B OLED display provides a very wide 160° viewing angle, keeping the same crisp view from nearly any direction.

This 16x2 character OLED is compatible with our 8x2 pin dual row header. With no backlight and no contrast controls, designing in the CFAL1602C-B reduces the number of control lines needed.

The command set of the on-board WS0010 controller is similar to the industry standard Hitachi HD44780 and compatibles, reducing your adoption time of the CFAL1602C-B into your project. With four built in font tables, multi-language support is a breeze.

Looking to change the look of your existing product that uses our CFAH1602C? The CFAL1602C-B has the same physical footprint.

    Date Issued: August 17, 2021
    Summary: Reset Pin Change
    Description: RST and CST, the components in the RC filter for the reset pin, are being modified. RST will be 33kOhms and CST will be 1uF.
    Reason: Some reset circuits have shown not to be strong enough to drive the reset pin within the specified timing. If the reset circuit is not strong enough, the controller will not properly reset which causes abnormal behavior.
