50x16 Graphic OLED Display

Part Number: CFAL5016A-Y

The CFAL5016A-Y is a versatile graphic OLED display module designed to fit the same display opening and mounting holes as the CFAH0802A series of character LCD display modules. If you are planning a design refresh and you are currently using one of our CFAH0802A series of LCD display modules, with a very small modification to your PCB layout you can add a 50x16 pixel graphic OLED display module to your design without changing the enclosure for your product!

The CFAL5016A-Y graphic OLED display module has a very high contrast ratio (2000:1) with an extremely dark background versus the lit-up pixels on the display. This will really make the information or graphics you're displaying pop, drawing the attention that your product deserves. This display module features a viewing cone in excess of 160° and is able to communicate using either an 8 or 4-bit parallel microcontroller interface. Because the CFAL5016A-Y only powers the pixels that are necessary, as opposed to backlighting the entire display all the time, there can be significant power savings when used with sparse display content. Like all of our display offerings, the CFAL5016A-Y is REACH/RoHS compliant, so adding the CFAL5016A-Y won't cause you any difficulties when shipping to the European Union or other areas which hold to those rules.

  • 8-bit parallel, 4-bit parallel.
  • The Winstar Display WS0010 controller interface is very similar to industry standard Hitachi HD44780.
  • Operating temperature range from -40°C to 80°C.
  • This product is RoHS Compliant.
  • Crystalfontz America Inc. is ISO 9001:2015 certified.

Part Change Notice #11077: Small Layout Change

Products Affected: CFAL2004A-Y, CFAL2002A-Y, CFAL1602L0-Y, CFAL1202A-Y, CFAL5016A-Y, CFAL0802A-Y, CFAL1602C-G, CFAL1602C-B, CFAL1602C-W, CFAL1602C-Y, CFAL1602C-GT, 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.
