16x2 Red SPI Character OLED

Part Number: CFAL1602C-PR

Popular SPI Interface

The OLED technology of the red-on-black CFAL1602C-PR 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-PR OLED display provides a very wide 160° viewing angle, keeping the same crisp view from nearly any direction.

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-PR into your project. With four built in font tables, multi-language support is a breeze.

Do you want to change the look of your existing product that uses our STN LCD CFAH1602C? The CFAL1602C-PR has the same physical footprint.
