FTDI Chip launches range of daughter cards for its Arduino-compatible EVE development modules

FTDI Chip is proud to announce a series of daughter cards (or shields) to support the VM800P 'Plus' module. The Arduino-compatible boards are based on the company’s award winning FT800 EVE graphic controller devices, in which display, audio and touch functionality are all integrated onto a single chip. The cards also incorporate an 8-bit ATMEGA microcontroller unit (MCU) and a TFT display (with 3.5”, 4.3” and 5.0” inch sizes available). All 6 new shields will allow the expansion of the boards’ I/O capabilities in order that they can be implemented into a wider range of application scenarios, and use 1 or 2 Micro-MaTch miniature connectors to interface with a VM800P.
