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.
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.
The FT800 with EVE, Embedded Video Engine technology announced in 2013 has garnered 5 major awards from around the world, as voted by user interest and technical panels.
With 3 in 1 functionality for display, audio, and touch, this 48 pin single chip solution, provides all the elements needed to development state of the art, Human Machine Interfaces. So take your system interface to the next level with EVE……available today! Click here for complete support 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 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.
