Power Input Connector

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P uses a wide range power input: DC6~36V. The total power consumption is normally about 3.5W. The Power Input Connector is 3 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal Connector as Figure 5 shows. It is labelled as P6 on PCB, and labelled as P3 on the metal case. The Character “+” means power Positive input, The Character “” means power Negative input. The Character “G” means system Ground. Table 1 has detailed descriptions about the connector definition.

Figure 5 Power Input Connector

Table 1

Power Input Pin Definition:
Pin Number Definition Description
Pin 1 Positive Input Connect to DC Power Positive Terminal
Pin 2 Negative Input Connect to DC Power Negative Terminal
Pin 3 Ground Connect to Power System Ground


The system ground “G” has been connected to power negative “-” on board.

Capacitive Touch

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P uses ten-point capacitive touch, as Figure 6 shows.

Figure 6 Capacitive Touch Connector


Capacitive touch is very sensitive to power noise. Ripple voltage/current from the power adapter will cause the LCD ripples, and will also cause the capacitive touch malfunction: If you use the APK Multi-Touch under Android to test, you can find the touch point float. There are several ways to solve this problem:

1)  Use a high quality power adapter. Or use battery to provide the power like cell phone or tablet PC. 

2)  If user power adapter isn’t be good enough, there’s another effective method to solve this problem: Make sure the CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P power input connector Pin 3 really connect to user “Power System Ground”. This method can eliminate the problem totally. User can also use another method to test this problem: touch the GND of CS80480T050E, CS80480T050P by one hand, the other hand operates on the capacitive touch screen. In this case, user’s body acts as the Power System Ground.

Resistive Touch

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P can also use resistive touch, as Figure 7 shows.

USB HOST Connector

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P has two USB connectors as Figure 9 shows. USB Host comes from the CPU USB1, labelled as P15 on the PCB. USB OTG comes from the CPU USB0, labelled as P14 on the PCB.

Figure 9 USB HOST Connector


The OTG Connector is defined as HOST by default (If the customer uses Android OS, it is defined as OTG by default). If customer needs it work as OTG, please remove 0 Ohm Resistor R119 and R121 as Figure 9 shows.

LAN Connector

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P has one channel 100Mbit Ethernet Connector, as Figure 10 shows. It is labelled as P13 on PCB.

Figure 10 LAN Connector

TF Card

The product CS80480T050E/CS80480T050P has one TF (uSD) card connector as Figure 11 shows. It is labelled as P5 on PCB. This device supports TF (uSD) card up to 32GB.
