LCD Power Consumption


I was wondering what the power consumption specs are for the “Graphical 128x64 UEXT Display” and “Serial LCD” before making a decision on which to purchase from TinyCLR. If anybody could help me out, I’d appreciate it. There are no spec sheets posted for these two devices.

Thanks in advance


I doubt that this info is available. These boards are made to be used for non-commercial applications so not every detail spec is available. If you have specific serious needs then give GHI a call and talk about it

Are you running of batteries?


I will be running the system off a lithium polymer battery with a step up regulator, but I need to calculate whether or not I’ll be drawing more power than the step up module can handle. That’s why I was interested in the power consumption. It’s not a matter of running out of batteries but I just don’t want to fry something :stuck_out_tongue:


I looked up some docs and it looks like the 128x64 display draws 3ma but that seem to be low so I am assuming this is without the backlight?
