In order to keep this display in production over the long term, we have revised it to the CFAG12864Q1-TFH.

128x64 Graphical LCD Module

Part Number: CFAO12864D3-TFH

This dark on light gray background 128x64 pixel COG (Chip-On-Glass) graphic LCD display module has an integrated Sitronix ST7565P controller. The graphic LCD is very low power, using less than 1mA to drive the display. To connect to your host, choose from SPI or 8-bit (6800 or 8080) parallel interface.

Prefer a different color? The CFAO12864D3-TMI is light (near white) on a blue background.

Part Change Notice #11107: End-Of-Life Notification

Products Affected: CFAO12864D3-TFH, CFAO12864D3-TMI, CFAO12864D3-TFH-CB, CFAO12864D3-TMI-CB, CFA212-TMI, CFA212-TFH, CFA211-TFH
Date Issued: November 9, 2021
Summary: End-Of-Life Notification
Description: These parts are being replaced and will no longer be available once the inventory has been depleted. The replacement part numbers will be posted on the corresponding product page.
Reason: The ST7565P driver that is used in these displays is no longer available and so to keep the parts available, we are switching to the ST7567 driver which is similar as well as readily available.

Product Update #10692: New Carrier board, Arduino shield, and Arduino kit options

New Products: CFAO12864D3-TFH, CFAO12864D3-TMI
Date Issued: April 1, 2016
Summary: New Carrier board, Arduino shield, and Arduino kit options
Description: Crystalfontz America announces three supporting products for the CFAO12864D3 series of displays based on the CFA10072 carrier board.

The first is the CFAO12864D3-TFH-CB and CFAO12864D3-TMI-CB ideal for working with your micro-controller development board.

The second is the CFA211-TFH and CFA211-TMI - our Arduino shield with a CFAO12864D3-TFH or CFAO12864D3-TMI (respectively). Load the sketch on your Arduino, plug it in, and go!

Finally, the all in one demo the CFA212-TFH and CFA212-TMI. It's our Shield and CFAO12864D3-TFH / TMI plugged into an Arduino with our sketch. All you provide is power.
Reason: Adding new products as part of our continuous improvement process, to enable our customer to more easily work with and demonstrate our displays.
Availability: Immediate
