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.

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.
