Power Input Connector

The product CS10768F120P-C121 uses a wide range power input: DC 15~36V. The total power consumption is normally about 10W. The Power Input Connector is 3 Pin 3.81mm Screw Terminal Connector as Figure 3 shows. 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.

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 CS10768F120P-C121 uses ten-point capacitive touch.


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 can’t be good enough, there’s another effective method to solve this problem: Make sure the CS10768F120P-C121 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 CS10768F120P-C121 by one hand, the other hand operates on the capacitive touch screen. In this case, user’s body acts as the Power System Ground.

DB9 Connector
