SPI 16x2 Yellow Character OLED

Part Number: CFAL1602C-PY

SPI Host Interface

The OLED technology of the yellow-on-black CFAL1602C-PY 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-PY 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-PY into your project. With four built in font tables, multi-language support for this SPI OLED is a breeze.

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

  • Extra wide range operating temperature: -40°C to 80°C (-40°F to 176°F).
  • High contrast OLED Character Display.
  • True black background with yellow characters.
  • SPl sample code, datasheet, and RoHS/REACH Certificate of Compliance are under the Datasheets & Files tab.
  • Sleek, modern visual appearance.
  • Thin package, no backlight.
  • No visual change over entire operating temperature range.
  • Very wide 160° viewing angle.
  • Four built in font tables:
    • English / Japanese
    • English / Western European I
    • English / Western European II
    • English / Cyrillic
  • Easy connectivity with standard 0.100" / 2.54mm connector.

    Product Update #11116: Bezel Change
    Products Affected: CFAL0802A-Y, CFAL1602C-B, CFAL1602C-W, CFAL1602C-Y, CFAL1602C-YT, CFAL1602C-PW, CFAL1602C-PY, CFAL1602C-PYT
    Date Issued: February 21, 2022
    Summary: Bezel Change
    Description: The bezel around these OLED displays is being modified to remove the small gap adjacent to the PCB.
    Reason: This gap is used in the manufacturing of STN LCDs that share the same bezel and is not necessary for OLED displays.

    Product Update #11103: Reset pin modification
    Products Affected: CFAL1602C-YT, CFAL1602C-PW, CFAL1602C-PY, CFAL1602C-PYT, CFAL5016A-PY
    Date Issued: October 14, 2021
    Summary: Reset pin modification
    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.

    Part Change Notice #11077: Small Layout Change
    Products Affected: CFAL2004A-Y, CFAL2002A-Y, CFAL1602L0-Y, CFAL1202A-Y, CFAL5016A-Y, CFAL0802A-Y, CFAL1602C-W, CFAL1602C-Y, CFAL1602C-YT, CFAL1602C-PW, CFAL1602C-PY, CFAL5016A-PY
    Date Issued: February 10, 2021
    Summary: Small Layout Change
    Description: Changing manufacturing locations of the wafers used in the controller chip. The layout has to be slightly modified to accommodate the practices at the new facility. The functionality will remain the same.
    Reason: Changing manufacturing locations due to the wafer process no longer being supported by the original facility.
