Monochrome Graphic LCD Displays

Kyocera Display (Optrex) F-51553 128x64 Blue/White LCD       Kyocera Display (Optrex) F-51553 128x64 Yellow/Green LCD



Kyocera Display (Optrex) F-51553 Series 128x64 LCDs with a 2.8-inch diagonal viewing area for character and/or graphics display


The F-51553 128x64 dot pixel chip on glass (COG) STN transmissive monochrome modules provide a wider temperature range (-20°C to +70°C) than Kyocera Display's (former Optrex) popular F-51320 Series COG monochrome LCDs. They also provide greater temperature stability (though use of a liquid crystal fluid with a flat voltage vs. operation temperature characteristic to enable operation over the entire temperature range without the need for voltage adjustment). The Kyocera Display (former Optrex) F-51553 supports serial as well as parallel interface, allowing designers the option of specifying their desired interface type. Parallel interface to a mPU requires 13 lines (8 for data and 5 for control). It has a flexible cable with 30 pin connector. The Kyocera Display (former Optrex) F-51553 module does not have an on board character generator. Compared to other controllers like the Toshiba T6963C, the F-51553 has a limited amount of instructions. However, it is quite easy to interface and program.


These cost-effective modules are available in two variations:


Kyocera Display (former Optrex) P/N F-51553GNBJ-LW-AEN, F-51553GNBJ-LW-AGN (Blue Mode version) module displays white characters or graphics on a blue background or inverted blue-on-white, features a highly efficient 3-chip white LED backlight, and provides a contrast ratio of 6:1. The Blue Mode F-51553 LCD has a total power consumption of only 0.385W max because of the higher efficiency white LEDs used in its construction. This reduces the problem of heat dissipation for components where that is a particularly sensitive issue, such as servers or hand-held monitoring instruments.
