Engineering Change Notification - EVE2 backlight IC : 08/31/2022
This notice is to inform you of a change on August 31st to the following TFT products:
The FAN5333BSX LED driver IC has been discontinued by the IC manufacturer. This IC has been replaced by SGM3766YTN5G in all our TFT EVE2 display designs. The resistor divider within the driver circuit has also changed to set the appropriate output current for the display backlight.
While this IC change may not affect most users who drive the display backlight at full brightness (100% duty cycle), it could affect users who implement PWM to modulate the backlight brightness. The PWM dimming frequency range for the affected display modules has changed as follows:
|MIN Frequency (Hz)||MAX Frequency (Hz)|
|Old design using FAN5333BSX||250||1,000|
|New design using SGM3766YTN5G||800||10,000|
We understand that every customer’s application is unique, and therefore recommend you test and validate samples of the updated design.
Samples may be purchased by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When ordering samples, please specify that you would like to receive the new version. Contact email@example.com for further information or assistance with this change.
