Title: Ways to connect C0220AZ-FSW-FTW to your system.
Post by: QuestionsSoMany on February 25, 2015, 02:35:05 PM
Hello all,

As the title might suggest I have a C0220AZ-FSW-FTW, that I would like to connect up.  I currently have one of these display with wires just soldered onto it.  This is not an ideal solution for what I have in mind. 

From looking at the documentation for this screen I see that the pitch for the data pins are 1.8mm, as best as I can figure.  I was looking on the new haven site to find a way to connect this screen to, lets say a ribbon cable and was not able to find one.  I did see they have a PCB board that is like a Universal board, but due to the price and size of the board it will also not work.

Any suggestion is appreciated.  Thank you.

Please note that the display pins have a 2.0mm pitch.  You may refer to page 3 in the display datasheet for more information.

The universal board that you found on our website is the only breakout board that we currently have.  You may be able to find something similar through our distributors like Mouser and Digikey.

well now, I feel silly.  Reading through the manual again, I see 2.0m pitch.  I was working off the drawing and figuring out the pitch.  I did not see the pitch on the next page.
