Title: Connecting NHD-4.3-480272MF-34
Post by: Peter Cyriax on December 16, 2015, 09:11:42 AM
Hi,

My display and controller just arrived: NHD-4.3-480272EF-ASXV#-T + NHD-4.3-480272MF-34.

Now I have to connect them to an Arduino Due.

"We also recommend" for the controller suggests a NHD-FFC20-1 FFC adapter - but this is 20 pin 1.mm to 2.54 mm adaptyer according to the annotation, though the pic looks like 0.5 mm to 2.54, and the J3 output of the NHD-4.3-480272MF-34. is 34 pin 0.5 mm pitch.

Can you please tell me the correct part numbers - adapter board + FFC ribbon to connect the controller to the adapter board.


Thanks



Peter

Hi peter,

Two options you have to connect the -34 controller board to your arduino.

1. You can use the NHD-FFC36 (http://www.newhavendisplay.com/nhdffc36-p-2476.html) with a 34 Pos 0.5 mm Pitch FFC such as  THIS  (http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/15166-0363/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvyL%252b65tEJ%2fL8uh7MrRs2hytRVoNn9Q7%252bI%3d)
Because the PCB has a 36 position Molex connector, you would need to off set to one side an leave 2 pins un connected.

2. You could get the following:
-NHD-COG14-36 (http://www.newhavendisplay.com/nhdcog1436-p-1107.html)
- Solder a 34 position FFC connector onto the 0.5mm pitch bar. Example of 34 pos connector OMRON XF2M-3515-1A (http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Omron-Electronics/XF2M-3515-1A/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMs7i6cT6ogu47MWgo5VyzIM6g9YhZaIknk%3d)
You will still need the FFC Cable from above.

With both of the parts above you will need 2x  2x9 Standard Pin Header  (http://www.newhavendisplay.com/2x9-standard-pin-header-p-1913.html)

Hi Saurabh,


That makes sense - thanks.
