PCF2116 datasheet



The PCF2116 family of LCD controller/drivers consists of the PCF2116x, the PCF2114x and the PCF2116K. The term ‘PCF2116’ is used to refer to all devices for common information. Specific information is given in separate paragraphs.

The ‘x’ in ‘PCF2116x’ and ‘PCF2114x’ represents a specific letter code for a character set in the character generator ROM (CGROM). The different character sets currently available are specified by the letters A, C, and G (see Figs 8 to 10). Other character sets are available on

The PCF2116 is a low-power CMOS LCD controller anddriver, designed to drive a split screen dot matrix LCDdisplay of 1 or 2 lines by 24 characters or 2 or 4 lines by12 characters with 5×8 dot format. All necessaryfunctions for the display are provided in a single chip,including on-chip generation of LCD bias voltages,resulting in a minimum of external components and lowersystem power consumption. The chip contains a charactergenerator and displays alphanumeric and kana(Japanese) characters.
