What is a Mounting Hole on a COB LCD?
The mounting hole is where the customer uses a screw, or some type of mounting hardware, to connect the LCD to their product.
The mounting hole has copper around the outside of the hole. Most of the time this copper is connected to the LCD ground. If you need to mount the display to your product without connecting to the ground, you have two options.
- Use a non-conductive mounting hardware. (such as plastic or equivalent)
- Have us modify the PCB to remove the copper from around the mounting holes.
ØPlease, do not drill out the mounting holes, this will damage the PCB and cut the traces.
