Title: NHD-0420DZ-FL-YBW LCD Replacement by NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3
Post by: sugumar.krishnasamy on April 01, 2015, 08:19:43 AM
Hi,

     We are using the display part: NHD-0420DZ-FL-YBW (4X20 supply is+5V). Now we are planning to reduce the LCD size by replacing the new LCD part: NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3 (4X20 supply is 3.3 to +5.5V).
 
We are planning to use the same +5V supply for this NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3 part and I/O interface also same +5V as NHD-0420DZ-FL-YBW.
 
Is this method of doing has any issue? Since the typical voltage is +3.3V mentioned for the display : NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello Sugumar,

Thank you for reaching out. NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3 was designed to be a 3.3V module, I do not recommend running it at 5.0V.

Hope this helps!

Hello Sir,

    This LCD display part: NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3 Typical supply voltage is given as 3.3V, But the Backlight Supply Voltage is given as 3V.

Can I use the LCD Supply Voltage and Backlight Supply Voltage at +3.3V instead of two separate supplies.

Hello,

To answer your question yes, however please use a current limiting resistor  8)

Now instead of previous display, We are planning to use 4X20 display part : NHD-0420AZ-FL-GBW-33V3 which 4 mounting holes whereas previous part NHD-0420H1Z-FL-GBW-33V3 has only two mounting holes.

This is due to vibration requirement of our unit.

1) Now What is the back-light supply voltage tolerance for the LCD part: NHD-0420AZ-FL-GBW-33V3? Since in your datasheet only typical value only mentioned.

2) Also what is the minimum LCD supply voltage for the same LCD part? Since typ and maximum value only given.
