 CleO50 - The 5" Smart TFT Display

CleO brings to market a family of intelligent, simple to program TFT display boards through which engineers can develop imaginative, compelling human machine interfaces, regardless of their experience level. Using Arduino as a foundation, CleO is able to leverage FTDI Chipís high speed bridging and display technology so that improved performance and greater functionality can be benefitted from.

CleO50 is a 5" smart TFT display shield for Arduino and MikroBUS. It includes a 5.0 inch 800x480 pixel TFT LCD panel with resistive touch, and PWM audio output with in-built speaker amplifier for advanced audio quality. These smart TFT display shields can be easily programmed by almost anyone to give professional looking HMI / GUI's with no prior knowledge of complex graphics programming or mathematics.


 Key Features

The following are some of the key features of CleO50:

  • Inbuilt advanced FT812 graphics controller IC with display, touch and audio functionality
  • Integrated FT900 32-bit RISC microcontroller (MCU) with high speed performance (310DMIPS)
  • Anti-aliased graphics throughout for enhanced image quality
  • 8MB inbuilt e-Flash plus Micro-SD card slot (4-32GB)
  • Smooth animations at up to 60 frames per second
  • Portrait and landscape modes supported
  • Integrated PWM audio and speaker amplifier
  • File system supporting up to 8 simultaneous file operations
  • Easy to use resistive touch
  • Minimal Arduino UNO resources used (1xSPI and 1xInterrupt)
  • Interface for camera accessory module
  • Panel mount bezel included
  • FCC/CE certified

 CleO50 Projects and Tutorials

An extensive range of tutorials (low level examples designed to train users on accessing all features available with CleO50) and projects (which build on the knowledge gained in the tutorials to build more complex HMIs and may require additional Arduino shields or plug in hardware, such as the CleO camera and speaker accessories) have already been created and are available on our dedicated technical support site for CleO - www.cleostuff.com. The tutorials consist of 20 chapters covering over 80 programming topics in detail, which do not require any specialist graphics or mathematics knowledge to manage.
