As the world of electronics becomes increasingly intertwined with our everyday lives designers are seeing an ever increasing demand for simple, fast, and visually stunning user interfaces. With the release of the ConnectEVE and EVE Click boards FTDI Chip are providing designers with access to the revolutionary FT800 display controller IC.
The Embedded Video Engine or EVE works with the FT800 allowing you to combine display, audio, and touch into a single chip, saving you time, money, stress while reducing power demand on devices, allowing for more efficient use of board space. EVE’s object orientated approach eliminates the traditional frame buffer memory as it renders an image, on a line by line basis, to 1/16th pixel resolution. Simply, initialize the object memory, then control the objects and their attributes by creating and manipulating a small display list buffer, which can be done even with a low-end 8-bit CPU. The embedded audio controller allows midi-like sounds or PCM audio playback. Packaged in a space-saving 48LD QFN package, the FT800 comes preloaded with a useful set of fonts and sounds in ROM, making it suitable for many applications.
An extensive programming guide with source code and application notes has been created so that experienced developers can create their own unique displays list and incorporate with microcontroller tool environments to produce complete graphics systems.
Design Made Easy, Display Made Easy, USB Made Easy…Leave it to EVE.
