Cable Connection

When connecting the EDT displays to a Colibri Evaluation Board or an Iris carrier board, make sure that pin 1 of the display is connected to pin 1 of the board.

Due to the nature of the FFC connectors, it is possible to invert the pinout and possibly damage the display and/or carrier board.

  • The Chiptronic Resistive Touch Display connectors do have contacts on top and bottom side.
  • The Iris Carrier Board also has contacts on top and bottom side of the FFC connector.
  • The FFC connector on the Colibri Evaluation Board has only contacts on the side towards the board edge.

Be also careful with the brown levers on the connectors. They are very delicate and can easily break.
