NHD-0420DZW-AY5 to replace NHD-0420DZ-FSW-FBW

(1/1)

BenFR30:
Dear,

We developp few years ago a board to command a LCD character display (4x20), NHD-0420DZ-FSW-FBW.
It works perfectly.
After some researches, I found NHD-0420DZW-AY5, the OLED characters display.
In the datasheet we can see that is compatible with LCD display, but, when i replace my LCD display with the OLED display, it doesn't work.

Is it this OLED display 100% compatible to replace LCD display, with no firmware modification ?

That is the point i'm searching for.

Many thanks in advance for your feedback, I am stuck :(

The display should be compatible for the most part, however a few minor adjustments for the firmware might be necessary.
The instruction execution time for the Oled is a fair amount slower so you might need to add a few delays or check for the busy flag before sending consecutive instructions.

The OLED does also require a larger current input through the +5V (VDD) Input as well, can you check to see if you are limited as to how much current you would be able to supply?

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback,
I have an external supply, so i have enough poower.

I'm now trying to improve delay.
Thank you for your help.
