Part NumberVM800C35A-N

The VM800C35A-N is a development module for FTDI’s FT800, which is used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT800 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. This module behaves as an SPI slave, and requires a SPI Master for proper micro-controller interfacing and system integration.


Detailed Description

The FT800 provides a powerful feature set in a small package to create dynamic HMI interfaces. The device supports line by line graphics rendering to 1/16 of a pixel on displays with resolution up to 512 × 512 with 262K colours. The chip includes a touch controller for sensing touch feedback from a TFT display with a resistive touch panel as well as a sound synthesizer and audio playback with a PWM output to drive a speaker.

VM800C35A-N Features:

The VM800C utilises the FTDI FT800  Embedded Video Engine. Graphic, audio and touch features of the FT800 can be accessed with the VM800C. For a full list of the FT800’s features please see the FT800 datasheet.

The VM800C has the following features: 

  • Ready to use LCD module
  • Part types with LCDs supporting resistive touch with pressure sensing. 
  • On board LCD backlight LED Driver
  • Supports mono audio output
  • On board audio power amplifier and micro speaker
  • Flexible power supply. Powering the VM800C using either a 2.1mm power jack , SPI master connector or via USB Micro-B  port 
  • 5 V tolerant buffers when used with a 5V SPI Master.
