Introducing the FT81x - EVE, the next generation!

FTDI Chip’s highly-regarded Embedded Video Engine (EVE) portfolio for advanced human machine interface (HMI) implementation has been further strengthened with the introduction of a new series of ICs and corresponding modules - the FT81x series. These new EVE devices support higher maximum screen resolutions than previously possible - increasing from the 512x512 pixels of the company’s FT80x series and offering up to 800x600 pixels, in order to address larger displays (7-inches and above) used in point-of-sales units, information kiosks, etc.

Now fully available in production quantities, the FT810, FT811, FT812 and FT813 ICs provide increased pixel resolution for sharper imagery, increased speed for faster data transfer and image/video loading, and larger memory capacity. In addition, the VM81x series currently includes the VM810C, a credit card sized development module to assist developing and demonstrating the functionality of the FT810 IC. This module behaves as an SPI slave, requiring an SPI Master for proper micro-controller interfacing and system integration. Two variants are available: the VM810C50A-D which is equipped with a 5.0” 800x480 pixel TFT LCD display panel preinstalled and the VM810C50A-N which comes without the display.

With regional technical support throughout the world, our goal is to provide total solutions that reduce development risk, enhance system capabilities, and enable faster time to market.


FTDI Chip releases full SuperSpeed USB3.0 Product Set

FTDI Chip is pleased to announce the full production release and availability of its FT60x series, a sophisticated USB3.0 to FIFO bridge in a choice of low count pin packages. In addition, four corresponding development modules are now available. The FT600 and FT601 are FTDI Chip's first generation USB3.0 products that funciton as SuperSpeed USB3.0 to FIFO bridges, providing data bursting rates of up to 3.2Gbps. Designed with simplicity in mind, the chips are simple to connect and control, with no firmware development required - just "fit and forget". 

The UMFT60XX range of evaluation/development modules with either FMC(LPC)/HSMC connectors have been designed to interface with the FT60x. The series allows for bridging a FIFO bus to a USB3.0 host and evaluating the functionality of the FT60X. As a daughter card, the UMFT60xx must work with a FIFO master board which has either a FMC or HSMC connector. There are 4 models which provide different FIFO bus interfaces and data bit widths, and they are designed to plug in to most FPGA development platforms supplied by vendors such as Xilinx or Altera.
