Title: NHD‐C0220BiZ‐FS(RGB)‐FBW‐3VM - Cable for LED Backlights
Post by: wadeh on December 02, 2016, 12:13:16 PM
Hello,

Given the LED backlight pins are what appears to be a non standard pitch (3mm) and size (~1.45mm), what are my options for a cable to connect to another board?

Sorry if this is a silly question and something I should know.

Thanks!

Evening,

The LCD and backlight pins should be soldered directly onto a thru-hole connection on a PCB (not a cable).

For your convenience I have attached the recommended footprint below  ;)

Understood.  I was planning on mounting the display directly to the front panel of a power supply I'm building.  I thought I would investigate mounting it behind a an aluminum front panel.  This means I either have to use a cable directly from the display or have it mounted to an intermediate board that is then mounted to the front panel.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
