FTDI Chip Unveils High Resolution EVE Devices

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 the FT81X series. These new EVE devices support higher maximum screen resolutions than previously possible - increasing from the 512x512 pixels of the company’s FT800 and FT801 by offering up to 800x600 pixels, in order to address larger displays (7-inches and above) used in point-of-sales units, information kiosks, etc.

For more information, please visit the FT81X series product page or click here for the press release. Provisional technical details are available in the draft datasheet.







Welcome to FTDI Chip - offering a wide range of products including modules, cables, and integrated circuits for USB connectivity and display systems. FTDI is driven to Make Design Easy and support this strategy with feature-rich products that include technical documentation, application/software examples, and royalty free USB drivers. With regional technical support throughout the world, FTDI’s goal is to provide total solutions that reduce development risk, enhance system capabilities, and enable faster time to market.

FT4222H Programming Modules now available

FTDI Chip is please to announce the availability of two programming modules for the FT4222H Hi-Speed USB to Quad SPI/I2C bridge IC, the UMFT4222PROG and UMFT4222PROG-IC. In addition, Android D2XX drivers and a sample application to extend the support for the FT4222H are now available. Please click here for more information 

Range of capacitive touch enabled EVE development platforms now available

FTDI Chip has further enlarged the portfolio of development modules accompanying its award-winning Embedded Video Engine (EVE) technology with the introduction of two capactive touch enabled devices, the VM801B 'Basic' and the VM801P 'Plus'. The Arduino controlled modules feature an FT801 chip and support multi touch, providing support from 1 to 5 independent touch point and allowing a wide variety of different gestures including rotations, swipes, pinches and zooms. Both modules are available in two popular display sizes - 4.3" and 5.0" - and provided within a hard wearing bezel in a choice of two colours.

FTDI Chip announces SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Series at Electronica 2014

Electronica has long since been renowned as the world's leading trade fair for components, systems and applications, and 2014 marked its 25th year of operation. This significant year was no different from the previous, with over 70,000 visitors and 2500 exhibitors across 4 days. The biggest announcement from FTDI Chip was the brand new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 series, the FT60X, which was demonstrated at our booth alongside a number of other interactive demos. For more information on our new device please click here to access the FT600 series press release, visit the FT600 product page or click here for the datasheet.


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.
