16x2 Parallel Character OLED

Part Number: CFAL1602L0-Y

Consider using this 2x16 character yellow OLED to replace your existing STN character display.

  • 8-bit or 4-bit parallel interface
  • WS0010 Controller (very similar to Hitachi HD44780)
  • Operating temperature range from -40°C to 80°C.
  • RoHS Compliant.
Why choose OLED technology?

OLEDs emit light so they don't require a backlight like most traditional LCDs. They are also thinner and more energy efficient. When comparing an OLED to an LCD, you'll immediately notice the OLED has better readability due to its higher contrast and wider viewing angle. Since OLEDs don't need a backlight they require much less power and are perfect for low power applications.

    Part Change Notice #11101: Reset Pin Change
    Products Affected: CFAL2004A-Y, CFAL2002A-Y, CFAL1602L0-Y, CFAL1202A-Y, CFAL5016A-Y, CFAL0802A-Y, CFAL1602C-B, CFAL1602C-W, CFAL1602C-Y
    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.
