60 x 8 LCD high-drive segment driver for automotive and
industrial
Rev. 4 — 8 April 2015
Product data sheet
1. General description
The PCA9620 is a peripheral device which interfaces to almost any Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD)1 with low multiplex rates. It generates the drive signals for any static or multiplexed
LCD containing up to eight backplanes, 60 segments, and up to 480 elements. The
PCA9620 is compatible with most microprocessors or microcontrollers and communicates
via a two-line bidirectional I2C-bus. Communication overheads are minimized using a
display RAM with auto-incremented addressing and display memory switching. The
PCA9620 features an internal charge pump with internal capacitors for on-chip generation
of the LCD driving voltages.
For a selection of NXP LCD segment drivers, see Table 44 on page 74.

When the internal VLCD generation is used, this pin drives the VLCD voltage. In this case pin VLCD is an
output. When the external supply is requested, then pin VLCD is an input and VLCD can be supplied to it. In
this case, the internal charge pump must be disabled (see Table 9 on page 10).

This command generates a chip-wide reset which resets all command values to their
default values (see Table 26 on page 18). It must be sent to the PCA9620 after power-on.
After this command is sent, it is possible to send additional commands without the need to
re-initialize the interface. Reset takes 100 ns to complete.
For further information, see Section 8.3 on page 17.

8.1.2 Command: OTP-refresh
In order to achieve the specified accuracy of VLCD, the frame frequency, and the
temperature measurement, each IC is calibrated during production and testing of the
device. This calibration is performed on EPROM cells called One Time Programmable
(OTP) cells. These cells are read by the device at power-on and every time when the
initialize command or the OTP-refresh command is sent. This command will take
approximately 10 ms to finish.

In frame inversion mode, the DC value is compensated across two frames and not within
one frame. Changing the inversion mode to frame inversion reduces the power
consumption, therefore it is useful when power consumption is a key point in the
application.
Frame inversion may not be suitable for all applications. The RMS voltage across a
segment is better defined, however since the switching frequency is reduced there is
possibility for flicker to occur.
The waveforms of Figure 16 on page 26 to Figure 22 on page 32 are showing line
inversion mode. Figure 23 on page 33 shows one example of frame inversion.

8.2 Possible display configurations
The PCA9620 is a versatile peripheral device designed to interface between any
microcontroller to a wide variety of LCD segment or dot matrix displays (see Figure 4). It
can directly drive any static or multiplexed LCD containing up to eight backplanes and up
to 60 segments.
The display configurations possible with the PCA9620 depend on the number of active
backplane outputs required. A selection of possible display configurations is given in
Table 25.

Fig 6.
Typical system configuration when using an external VLCD
The host microcontroller maintains the two line I2C-bus communication channel with the
PCA9620. The appropriate biasing voltages for the multiplexed LCD waveforms are
generated internally. The only other connections required to complete the system are the
power supplies (VDD1, VDD2, VSS, VLCD), the external capacitors, and the LCD panel
selected for the application.
The minimum recommended values for external capacitors on VDD1, VDD2, and VLCD are
nominal 100 nF. When using bigger capacitors, especially on the VLCD, the generated
ripple will be consequently smaller. However it will take longer for the internal charge
pump to reach the target VLCD voltage first.
If VDD1 and VDD2 are connected externally, the capacitors on VDD1 and VDD2 can be
replaced by a single capacitor with a minimum value of 200 nF.
Remark: In the case of insufficient decoupling, ripple of VDD1 and VDD2 will create
additional VLCD ripple. The ripple on VLCD can be reduced by making the VSS connection
as low-ohmic as possible. Excessive ripple on VLCD may cause flicker on the display.
8.3 Start-up and shut-down
8.3.1 Power-On Reset (POR)
At power-on, the PCA9620 resets to starting conditions as follows:
1. All backplane outputs are set to VSS.
2. All segment outputs are set to VSS.
3. Selected drive mode is: 1:8 with 1⁄4 bias.
4. Input and output bank selectors are reset.
5. The I2C-bus interface is initialized.
6. The data pointer is cleared (set logic 0).
7. The Internal oscillator is running; no clock signal is available on pin CLK; pin CLK is in
3-state.
8. Temperature measurement is enabled.

9. Temperature filter is disabled.
10. The internal VLCD voltage generation is disabled. The charge pump is switched off.
11. The VLCD temperature compensation is enabled.
12. The display is disabled.
Remark: Do not transfer data on the I2C-bus for at least 1 ms after a power-on to allow
the reset action to complete.
The first command sent to the device after the power-on event must be the initialize
command (see Section 8.1.1 on page 8).
After Power-On Reset (POR) and before enabling the display, the RAM content should be
brought to a defined status
• by clearing it (setting it all logic 0) or
• by writing meaningful content (for example, a graphic)
otherwise unwanted display artifacts may appear on the display.

Fig 14. Recommended power-down sequence when using an external supplied VLCD and

Remark: It is necessary to run the power-down sequence before removing the supplies.
Depending on the application, care must be taken that no other signals are present at the
chip input or output pins when removing the supplies (refer to Section 10 on page 56).
Otherwise it may cause unwanted display artifacts. The PCA9620 will not be damaged by
uncontrolled removal of supply voltages
Remark: Static voltages across the liquid crystal display can build up when the external
LCD supply voltage (VLCD) is on while the IC supply voltage (VDD1 or VDD2) is off, or vice
versa. It may cause unwanted display artifacts. To avoid such artifacts, external VLCD,
VDD1, and VDD2 must be applied or removed together.
Remark: A clock signal must always be supplied to the device when the device is active;
removing the clock may freeze the LCD in a DC state, which is not suitable for the liquid
crystal. It is recommended to first disable the display and afterwards to remove the clock
signal.
8.4 LCD voltage
8.4.1 LCD voltage selector
The LCD voltage selector co-ordinates the multiplexing of the LCD in accordance with the
selected LCD drive configuration. The operation of the voltage selector is controlled by the
set-bias-mode command (see Table 15 on page 11) and the set-MUX-mode command
(see Table 14 on page 11).
Intermediate LCD biasing voltages are obtained from an internal voltage divider. The
biasing configurations that apply to the preferred modes of operation, together with the
biasing characteristics as functions of VLCD and the resulting discrimination ratios (D), are
given in Table 27.
Discrimination is a term which is defined as the ratio of the Von(RMS) and Voff(RMS) across a
segment. It can be thought of as a measurement of contrast.

In these examples the discrimination factor and hence the contrast ratios are smaller. The advantage of
these LCD drive modes is a power saving from a reduction of the LCD voltage VLCD.
A practical value for VLCD is determined by equating Voff(RMS) with a defined LCD
threshold voltage (Vth(off)), typically when the LCD exhibits approximately 10 % contrast. In
the static drive mode a suitable choice is VLCD > 3Vth(off).

Bias is calculated by ------------- , where the values for a are
1+a
a = 1 for 1⁄2 bias
a = 2 for 1⁄3 bias
a = 3 for 1⁄4 bias
The RMS on-state voltage (Von(RMS)) for the LCD is calculated with Equation 1:
V on  RMS  =
V LCD
a 2 + 2a + n
-----------------------------2
n  1 + a

where VLCD is the resultant voltage at the LCD segment and where the values for n are
n = 1 for static mode
n = 2 for 1:2 multiplex
n = 4 for 1:4 multiplex
n = 6 for 1:6 multiplex
n = 8 for 1:8 multiplex
The RMS off-state voltage (Voff(RMS)) for the LCD is calculated with Equation 2:

It should be noted that VLCD is sometimes referred as the LCD operating voltage.

Electro-optical performance
Suitable values for Von(RMS) and Voff(RMS) are dependent on the LCD liquid used. The
RMS voltage, at which a pixel will be switched on or off, determine the transmissibility of
the pixel.
For any given liquid, there are two threshold values defined. One point is at 10 % relative
transmission (at Vth(off)) and the other at 90 % relative transmission (at Vth(on)), see
Figure 15. For a good contrast performance, the following rules should be followed:
V on  RMS   V th  on 
(4)
V off  RMS   V th  off 
(5)
Von(RMS) and Voff(RMS) are properties of the display driver and are affected by the selection
of a, n (see Equation 1 to Equation 3) and the VLCD voltage.
Vth(off) and Vth(on) are properties of the LCD liquid and can be provided by the module
manufacturer.
It is important to match the module properties to those of the driver in order to achieve
optimum performance.

When eight backplanes are provided in the LCD, the 1:8 multiplex drive mode applies, as
shown in Figure 22 and Figure 23.
8.4.3 VLCD generation
VLCD can be generated and controlled on the chip by using software commands. When
the internal charge pump is used, the programmed VLCD is available on pin VLCD. The
charge pump generates a VLCD of up to 3  VDD2.
The charge pump can be enabled or disabled with the CPE bit (see Table 9 on page 10).
With bit CPC, the charge pump multiplier setting can be configured.
The final value of VLCD is a combination of the programmed VPR[7:0] value and the output
of the temperature compensation block, VT[7:0]. The system is shown in Figure 24.

It has to be taken into account that the charge pump has to be configured (via bit CPC)
properly to obtain the desired voltage range. For example, if VDD2 = 3.0 V and CPC is set
to 2  VDD2 (logic 0) then the maximum theoretical value that the charge pump can reach
is VLCD = 6.0 V. But in reality, lower values will be reached due to internal resistances, see
Section 8.4.5. So, if the requested value for VLCD = 7.0 V then the charge pump has to be
configured with CPC set to 3  VDD2 (logic 1).

(1) If VDD2 > 3.0 V then VPR[7:0] must be set so that VLCD > VDD2.
(2) Automatic limitation for VLCD > 9.0 V.
Fig 25. VLCD programming of PCA9620 (assuming VT[7:0] = 0h)
Programmable range of VPR[7:0] is from 0h to FFh. This would allow achieving
VLCD > 9.0 V, but the PCA9620 has a built-in automatic limitation of VLCD at 9.0 V.
If VDD2 is higher than 3.0 V, then it is important that VPR[7:0] is set to a value such that the
resultant VLCD (including the temperature correction of VT[7:0]) is higher than VDD2.
8.4.4 External VLCD supply
VLCD can be directly supplied to the VLCD pin. In this case, the internal charge pump must
not be enabled otherwise a high current may occur on pin VDD2 and pin VLCD. When VLCD
is supplied externally, no internal temperature compensation occurs on this voltage even if
bit TCE is set logic 1 (see Section 8.4.8 on page 39). The VLCD voltage which is supplied
externally will be available at the segments and backplanes of the device through the
chosen bias system. Also programming the VPR[7:0] bit field has no effect on the VLCD
which is externally supplied.
8.4.5 Charge pump driving capability

deliver.

Fig 26. Charge pump model (used to characterize the driving strength)
The output resistance of the charge pump is specified in Table 36 on page 58. With these
values, it can be calculated how much current the charge pump can drive under certain
conditions.
Example: Assuming that the normal operation point is at 25 C with VLCD = 7.0 V and
VDD2 = 5.0 V and the charge pump is set to 2  VDD2. Then the theoretical value of VLCD is
10.0 V and the desired one is 7.0 V. The difference between the theoretical maximum
value and desired one is 3.0 V. The charge pump resistance is nominally 0.85 k.
Equation 7 shows the possible current that the charge pump could deliver:
I load = V LCD  R o  cp 
(7)
The result of this example is: I load = 3.0 V  0.85 k = 3.5 mA
In cases where no extreme driving capability is needed, a command is available for
decreasing the charge pump frequency (see Table 23 on page 14) and thus reducing the
total current consumption. If the charge pump frequency is halved, then the driving
capability is halved as well, whereas the output resistance doubles.
8.4.6 Charge pump frequency settings and power efficiency
The PCA9620 offers the possibility to use different frequency settings for the charge
pump. Bit CPF controls the frequency at which the charge pump is running (see Table 23
on page 14). This frequency has a direct influence on the current consumption of the IC
but also on the charge pump driving capability. Using a lower charge pump frequency
decreases the current consumption and the driving capability.
The power efficiency of the charge pump determines in certain applications which
frequency settings to choose for the CPF bit. Concerning the example shown in Figure 27:
The current consumption was measured with
• charge pump set to 2  VDD2
• VDD2 = 3.0 V
• VPR[7:0] set to maximum to obtain the highest possible VLCD with this setup, which is
close to 6.0 V
The current load on pin VLCD determines the output power delivered by the IC:
P o = I load  V LCD
(8)
The current consumption on pin VDD2 determines the input power taken by the IC:

Fig 27. Power efficiency of the charge pump
Loading the charge pump with higher currents decreases the output voltage. This
decrease is determined by the charge pump driving capability, respectively by the output
resistance of the charge pump (see Table 36 on page 58).
The power efficiency calculation is only valid when the charge pump is running at its
maximum peak frequency and regulates the generated VLCD voltage with full speed. In
this case, the ripple on the VLCD voltage equals the internal charge pump frequency.
Approximately, this could also be calculated with the parameter of the output resistance of
the charge pump (see Table 36 on page 58), the load current, and the voltage needed to
be provided by using Equation 7 on page 36. This value of Iload is close to the value of the
load current needed for the application.
If the application runs with VDD2 = 3.0 V, the load currents are up to 400 A
(DC measured), and the VLCD generated voltages are up to 5.0 V, then - concerning
power efficiency - it would be the best to have a charge pump frequency set to half
frequency.

If it is desired to change the charge pump frequency, it is recommended to make a graph
like Figure 27 and understand what the application requirements are. This would basically
imply to find out what would be the maximum VLCD requirements and what would be the
maximum load currents required. Then it can be decided which is the best setting of bit
CPF.
Tuning the charge pump frequency might be a difficult task to do. It requires good
knowledge of the application in which the IC is being used; therefore, NXP is
recommending to keep the CPF bit set logic 0 to have the maximum charge pump
frequency, thus having the maximum driving strength.
8.4.7 Temperature readout
The PCA9620 has a built-in temperature sensor which provides an 8 bit digital value,
TD[7:0], of the ambient temperature. This value can be read through the I2C interface (see
Figure 50 on page 55). The actual temperature is determined from TD[7:0] using
Equation 11:
T (°C) = 0.9375  TD  7:0  – 40
(11)
The measurement needs about 5 ms to complete. it is repeated periodically as soon as bit
TME is set logic 1 (see Table 10 on page 10). The time between measurements is linked
to the system clock and hence varies with changes in the chosen frame frequency, see
Table 29.

Due to the nature of a temperature sensor, oscillations on the VLCD may occur. To avoid it,
a filter has been implemented in PCA9620. The system is shown in Figure 28.

Fig 29. Temperature measurement delay
This delay may cause undesired effects at start-up when the environment temperature
may be different than the reset value of the PCA9620 which is 20 °C. In this case, it takes
up to 30 s until the correct measured temperature value will be available. A control bit,
TFE, is implemented to enable or disable the digital temperature filter. This bit is set
logic 0 by default which means that the filter is disabled and the unfiltered environment
temperature value is available to calculate the desired VLCD.
8.4.8 Temperature compensation of VLCD
Due to the temperature dependency of the liquid crystal viscosity, the LCD controlling
voltage VLCD might have to be adjusted at different temperatures to maintain optimal
contrast. The temperature behavior of the liquid comes from the LCD manufacturer. The
slope has to be set to compensate for the liquid behavior. Internal temperature
compensation may be enabled via bit TCE.
The ambient temperature range is split up into four equally sized regions and a different
temperature coefficient can be applied to each (see Figure 30). Each coefficient can be
selected from a choice of eight different slopes. Each one of these coefficients (see
Table 30) may be independently selected via the temp-comp-SLA to temp-comp-SLD
commands (see Table 5 on page 8).

Remark: After reset, VLCD is fixed because the VPR[7:0] bit field is reset logic 0. The
value of VT[7:0] is generated by the reset value of TD[7:0] (40h, representing 20 C).
Temperature compensation is implemented by adding an offset VT[7:0] to the VPR[7:0]
value. VT[7:0] is a two’s complement number that equals 0h at 20 C. The final result for
VLCD calculation is an 8-bit positive number (see Equation 6 on page 34).
Remark: Care must be taken that the ranges of VPR[7:0] and VT[7:0] do not cause
clipping and hence undesired results. The device will not permit overflow or underflow and
will clamp results to either end of the range.

No temperature compensation is possible above 80 C. Above this value, the system maintains the
compensation value from 80 C.
Example: Assumed that Tamb = 8 C; TD[7:0] = 22h; MB = 0.5:
V offset  LCD  = m  V T = m   TD[7:0] – 64   MB = 30mV    34 – 64   – 0.5  =
30mV  – 30  – 0.5 = 450mV
(13)
The VT[7:0] term is calculated using the digital temperature value TD[7:0] which is
provided by the temperature measurement block (Section 8.4.7). Therefore the accuracy
of the temperature measurement block (Tacc, see Table 36 on page 58) will be directly
translated to the LCD voltage deviation VLCD.
Since VT[7:0] = f[T,slope] and Tacc = 6 C then V T = T acc  slope , where slope has one
of the possible values specified in Table 30. This term will be added to the total LCD
voltage deviation Voffset(LCD)tot over the temperature range. So the total VLCD offset will
be: V offset  LCD tot = V LCD + V T .
8.5 Oscillator
The internal logic and LCD drive signals of the PCA9620 are timed by a frequency fclk
which either is the built-in oscillator frequency fosc or equals an external clock frequency.
8.5.1 Internal oscillator
When the internal oscillator is used, it is possible to make the clock signal available on pin
CLK by using the oscillator-ctrl command (see Table 8 on page 9). If this is not intended,
pin CLK should be left open. At power-on the signal at pin CLK is disabled and pin CLK is
in 3-state.
The duty cycle of the output clock provided on the CLK pin is not always 50 : 50. Table 18
on page 12 shows the expected duty cycle for each of the chosen frame frequencies.
8.5.2 External clock
In applications where an external clock needs to be applied to the PCA9620, bit OSC (see
Table 8 on page 9) must be set logic 1. In this case pin CLK becomes an input.

The CLK signal is a signal that is fed into the VDD1 domain so it must have an amplitude
equal to the VDD1 voltage supplied to the chip and be referenced to VSS.
The clock frequency (fclk) determines the LCD frame frequency ffr.
Remark: If an external clock is used then this clock signal must always be supplied to the
device; removing the clock may freeze the LCD in a DC state, which is not suitable for the
liquid crystal. Removal of the clock is possible when following the correct procedures. See
Figure 13 on page 22 and Figure 14 on page 23.
8.5.3 Timing and frame frequency
The timing of the PCA9620 organizes the internal data flow of the device. It includes the
transfer of display data from the display RAM to the display segment outputs. The timing
also generates the LCD frame frequency which it derives as an integer division of the
clock frequency. The frame frequency is a fixed division of the internal clock or of the
frequency applied to pin CLK when an external clock is used:
f clk
f fr = ------48
(14)
When the internal clock is used, the clock and frame frequency can be programmed by
software such that the nominal frame frequency can be chosen in steps of 10 Hz in the
range of 60 Hz to 300 Hz (see Table 18 on page 12). Furthermore the nominal frame
frequency is factory-calibrated with an accuracy of 15 %.
When the internal clock is enabled at pin CLK by using bit COE, the duty ratio of the clock
may change when choosing different values for the frame frequency prescaler. Table 18
on page 12 shows the different output duty ratios for each frame frequency prescaler
setting.
8.6 Backplane outputs
The LCD drive section includes eight backplane outputs: BP0 to BP7. The backplane
output signals are generated based on the selected LCD multiplex drive mode.
Table 32 describes which outputs are active for each of the multiplex drive modes and
what signal is generated.

8.7 Segment outputs
The LCD drive section includes 60 segment outputs (S0 to S59) which must be connected
directly to the LCD. The segment output signals are generated based on the multiplexed
backplane signals and with data resident in the display register. When less than
60 segment outputs are required, the unused segment outputs must be left open-circuit.
8.8 Display register
The display register holds the display data while the corresponding multiplex signals are
generated.
8.9 Display RAM
The display RAM is a static 60  8-bit RAM which stores LCD data. Logic 1 in the RAM bit
map indicates the on-state of the corresponding LCD element; similarly, logic 0 indicates
the off-state.
There is a one-to-one correspondence between
• the bits in the RAM bitmap and the LCD elements
• the RAM columns and the segment outputs
• the RAM rows and the backplane outputs.
The display RAM bit map, Figure 31, shows row 0 to row 7 which correspond with the
backplane outputs BP0 to BP7, and column 0 to column 59 which correspond with the
segment outputs S0 to S59. In multiplexed LCD applications, the data of each row of the
display RAM is time-multiplexed with the corresponding backplane (row 0 with BP0, row 1
with BP1, and so on).
When display data is transmitted to the PCA9620, the display bytes received are stored in
the display RAM in accordance with the selected LCD multiplex drive mode. The data is
stored as it arrives and does not wait for the acknowledge cycle as with the commands.
Depending on the current multiplex drive mode, data is stored singularly, in pairs,
quadruples, sextuples or bytes.

The display RAM bitmap shows the direct relationship between the display RAM column and the
segment outputs, between the bits in a RAM row and the backplane outputs, and between the
RAM rows and banks.

8.9.1 Data pointer
The addressing mechanism for the display RAM is realized using the data pointer. It
allows the loading of an individual display data byte, or a series of display data bytes into
any location of the display RAM. The sequence commences with the initialization of the
data pointer by the load-data-pointer command. Following this command, an arriving data
byte is stored starting at the display RAM address indicated by the data pointer.

multiplex drive mode configuration. That is, after each byte is stored, the contents of the
data pointer are incremented

If the data pointer reaches the end of the RAM row, it is automatically wrapped around to
address 0. This means that it can be continuously written to or read from the display RAM.
The data pointer should always be set to an address where the remaining RAM is divisible
by eight because odd bits will be discarded (see Figure 33). This behavior is only shown
in static drive mode because the 60 RAM cells cannot be divided by eight without
remainder.
If an I2C-bus data access is terminated early, then the state of the data pointer is
unknown. The data pointer must then be re-written before further RAM accesses.

A RAM bank can be thought of as a collection of RAM rows. The PCA9620 includes a
RAM bank switching feature in the static, 1:2, and 1:4 multiplex drive modes.
The RAM bank switching gives the provision for preparing display information in an
alternative bank and to be able to switch to it once it is complete. Input and output banks
can be set independently from one another with the input-bank-select and the
output-bank-select commands; Figure 42 shows the concept.

Fig 42. Example of bank selection in 1:4 multiplex mode
In Figure 42 an example is shown for 1:4 multiplex drive mode. The displayed data is read
from the first four rows of the memory (bank 0), while the transmitted data is stored in the
second four rows of the memory (bank 4) which is currently not accessed for the reading.
Therefore different content can be loaded into the first and second four RAM rows which
will be immediately displayed on the LCD by switching it with the output-bank-select
command (see Figure 43).

Input-bank-select
The input-bank-select command (see Table 19 on page 13) loads display data into the
display RAM in accordance with the selected LCD drive configuration.
• In static drive mode, an individual content can be stored in each RAM bank (bank 0 to
bank 7 which corresponds to row 0 to row 7).
• In 1:2 multiplex drive mode, individual content for RAM bank 0 (row 0 and row 1),
RAM bank 2 (row 2 and row 3), RAM bank 4 (row 4 and 5) and RAM bank 6 (row 6
and row 7) can be stored.
• In 1:4 multiplex drive mode individual content can be stored in RAM bank 0 (row 0 to
row 3) and RAM bank 4 (row 4 to row 7).
The input-bank-select command works independently to the output-bank-select.

Output-bank-select
The output-bank-select command (see Table 20 on page 13) selects the display RAM
transferring it to the display register in accordance with the selected LCD drive
configuration.
• In the static drive mode, it is possible to request the content of RAM bank 1 (row 1) to
RAM bank 7 (row 7) for display instead of the default RAM bank 0 (row 0).
• In 1:2 multiplex drive mode, the content of RAM bank 2 (row 2 and row 3) or of RAM
bank 4 (row 4 and row 5) or of RAM bank 6 (row 6 and row 7) may be selected
instead of the default RAM bank 0 (row 0 and row 1).
• In 1:4 multiplex drive mode, the content of RAM bank 4 (row 4, 5, 6, and 7) may be
selected instead of RAM bank 0 (row 0, 1, 2, and 3).
The output-bank-select command works independently to the input-bank-select.

9. I2C-bus interface characteristics
The I2C-bus is for bidirectional, two-line communication between different ICs or modules.
The two lines are a Serial DAta line (SDA) and a Serial CLock line (SCL). Both lines must
be connected to a positive supply via a pull-up resistor when connected to the output
stages of a device. Data transfer may be initiated only when the bus is not busy.
9.1 Bit transfer
One data bit is transferred during each clock pulse. The data on the SDA line must remain
stable during the HIGH period of the clock pulse as changes in the data line at this time
will be interpreted as a control signal (see Figure 44).

9.2 START and STOP conditions
Both data and clock lines remain HIGH when the bus is not busy.
A HIGH-to-LOW change of the data line, while the clock is HIGH is defined as the START
condition (S).
A LOW-to-HIGH change of the data line while the clock is HIGH is defined as the STOP
condition (P).
The START and STOP conditions are shown in Figure 45.

9.3 System configuration
A device generating a message is a transmitter; a device receiving a message is the
receiver. The device that controls the message is the master; and the devices which are
controlled by the master are the slaves. The system configuration is shown in Figure 46.

9.4 Acknowledge
The number of data bytes transferred between the START and STOP conditions from
transmitter to receiver is unlimited. Each byte of eight bits is followed by an acknowledge
cycle.
• A slave receiver which is addressed must generate an acknowledge after the
reception of each byte.
• Also a master receiver must generate an acknowledge after the reception of each
byte that has been clocked out of the slave transmitter.
• The device that acknowledges must pull-down the SDA line during the acknowledge
clock pulse, so that the SDA line is stable LOW during the HIGH period of the
acknowledge related clock pulse (set-up and hold times must be taken into
consideration).
• A master receiver must signal an end of data to the transmitter by not generating an
acknowledge on the last byte that has been clocked out of the slave. In this event, the
transmitter must leave the data line HIGH to enable the master to generate a STOP
condition.
Acknowledgement on the I2C-bus is shown in Figure 47.

9.5 I2C-bus controller
The PCA9620 acts as an I2C-bus slave receiver. It does not initiate I2C-bus transfers or
transmit data to an I2C-bus master receiver. The only data output from PCA9620 are the
acknowledge signals and the temperature readout byte of the selected device.
9.6 Input filters
To enhance noise immunity in electrically adverse environments, RC low-pass filters are
provided on the SDA and SCL lines.
9.7 I2C-bus slave address
Device selection depends on the I2C-bus slave address.
Four different I2C-bus slave addresses can be used to address the PCA9620 (see
Table 33).

The least significant bit of the slave address byte is bit R/W. Bit 1 and bit 2 of the slave
address are defined by connecting the inputs A0 and A1 to either VSS (logic 0) or VDD
(logic 1). Therefore, four instances of PCA9620 can be distinguished on the same
I2C-bus.

The I2C-bus protocol is shown in Figure 48. The sequence is initiated with a START
condition (S) from the I2C-bus master which is followed by one of the four PCA9620 slave
addresses available. All PCA9620’s with the corresponding A1 and A0 level acknowledge
in parallel to the slave address, but all PCA9620 with the alternative A1 and A0 levels
ignore the whole I2C-bus transfer.
After acknowledgement, a control byte follows which defines if the next byte is RAM or
command information. The control byte also defines if the next byte is a control byte or
further RAM or command data.

In this way it is possible to configure the device and then fill the display RAM with little
overhead.
The display bytes are stored in the display RAM at the address specified by the data
pointer.
The acknowledgement after each byte is made only by the (A0 and A1) addressed
PCA9620. After the last display byte, the I2C-bus master issues a STOP condition (P).
Alternatively a START may be issued to RESTART an I2C-bus access.
If a temperature readout (byte TD[7:0]) is made the R/W bit must be logic 1 and then the
next data byte following is provided by the PCA9620 as shown in Figure 50.

CAUTION
This device is sensitive to ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). Observe precautions for handling
electrostatic sensitive devices.
Such precautions are described in the ANSI/ESD S20.20, IEC/ST 61340-5, JESD625-A or
equivalent standards.
CAUTION
Static voltages across the liquid crystal display can build up when the LCD supply voltage
(VLCD) is on while the IC supply voltage (VDD) is off, or vice versa. This may cause unwanted
display artifacts. To avoid such artifacts, VLCD and VDD must be applied or removed together.
CAUTION
Semiconductors are light sensitive. Exposure to light sources can cause the IC to
malfunction. The IC must be protected against light. The protection must be applied to all
sides of the IC.

Internal calibration made with OTP so that the maximum variation is 15 % over whole temperature and voltage range. The typical fosc
generates a typical frame frequency of 200 Hz when the default frequency division factor is used (see Section 8.5.3 on page 42).
[2]
The typical value is defined at VDD1 = VDD2 = 5.0 V and 30 C.
[3]
All timing values are valid within the operating supply voltage and ambient temperature range and are referenced to VIL and VIH with an
input voltage swing of VSS to VDD.
[4]
tVD;DAT = minimum time for valid SDA output following SCL LOW.
[5]
tVD;ACK = time for acknowledgement signal from SCL LOW to SDA output LOW.

19. Soldering of SMD packages
This text provides a very brief insight into a complex technology. A more in-depth account
of soldering ICs can be found in Application Note AN10365 “Surface mount reflow
soldering description”.
19.1 Introduction to soldering
Soldering is one of the most common methods through which packages are attached to
Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), to form electrical circuits. The soldered joint provides both
the mechanical and the electrical connection. There is no single soldering method that is
ideal for all IC packages. Wave soldering is often preferred when through-hole and
Surface Mount Devices (SMDs) are mixed on one printed wiring board; however, it is not
suitable for fine pitch SMDs. Reflow soldering is ideal for the small pitches and high
densities that come with increased miniaturization.
19.2 Wave and reflow soldering
Wave soldering is a joining technology in which the joints are made by solder coming from
a standing wave of liquid solder. The wave soldering process is suitable for the following:
• Through-hole components
• Leaded or leadless SMDs, which are glued to the surface of the printed circuit board
Not all SMDs can be wave soldered. Packages with solder balls, and some leadless
packages which have solder lands underneath the body, cannot be wave soldered. Also,
leaded SMDs with leads having a pitch smaller than ~0.6 mm cannot be wave soldered,
due to an increased probability of bridging.
The reflow soldering process involves applying solder paste to a board, followed by
component placement and exposure to a temperature profile. Leaded packages,
packages with solder balls, and leadless packages are all reflow solderable.
Key characteristics in both wave and reflow soldering are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Board specifications, including the board finish, solder masks and vias
Package footprints, including solder thieves and orientation
The moisture sensitivity level of the packages
Package placement
Inspection and repair
Lead-free soldering versus SnPb soldering
19.3 Wave soldering
Key characteristics in wave soldering are:
• Process issues, such as application of adhesive and flux, clinching of leads, board
transport, the solder wave parameters, and the time during which components are
exposed to the wave
• Solder bath specifications, including temperature and impurities

19.4 Reflow soldering
Key characteristics in reflow soldering are:
• Lead-free versus SnPb soldering; note that a lead-free reflow process usually leads to
higher minimum peak temperatures (see Figure 62) than a SnPb process, thus
reducing the process window
• Solder paste printing issues including smearing, release, and adjusting the process
window for a mix of large and small components on one board
• Reflow temperature profile; this profile includes preheat, reflow (in which the board is
heated to the peak temperature) and cooling down. It is imperative that the peak
temperature is high enough for the solder to make reliable solder joints (a solder paste
characteristic). In addition, the peak temperature must be low enough that the
packages and/or boards are not damaged. The peak temperature of the package
depends on package thickness and volume and is classified in accordance with
Table 42 and 43
Table 42.

times.
Studies have shown that small packages reach higher temperatures during reflow
soldering, see Figure 62.
