Intelligent Display System Provides Unmatched Ease of Integration
4D Systems has announced a partnership with FTDI Chip that has resulted in the development of a highly advanced intelligent SPI display offering, based on FTDI Chip’s FT800 Embedded Video Engine (EVE). The new 4DLCD-FT843 product enables system designers to rapidly create high quality human machine interfaces (HMIs). It includes a 4.3” TFT display (with 480 x 272 pixel resolution), PWM audio output (with amplifier enable), a 64 voice polyphonic sound synthesizer, a 4-wire resistive touch screen, all integrated on a flexible ribbon connector. The product was designed so that it can be easily incorporated into current systems via an SPI interface, where the FT800 acts like an SPI peripheral.
