Mouser now stocking FTDI’s Embedded Video Engine (EVE)

Mouser Electronics is now stocking FDTI”s FT800 Embedded Video Engine (EVE) integrated circuit, which looks to address the need for easy-to-design, advanced forms of human-machine interaction.The FT800 Embedded Video Engine (EVE) is a high quality graphics chip with 3-in-1 functionality for graphical user interface (GUI) development.

The FT800 combines display, audio, and touch operations into a single chip, providing an optimised solution that reduces power, board area as well as bill of material (BOM) costs. As a result engineers now have a complete solution to help them to create state-of-the-art interactive displays. Targeting intelligent QVGA and WQVGA TFT display panels, EVE”s object-oriented approach renders display images in a line-by-line manner with resolution of 1/16th of a pixel, eliminating the expense of traditional frame buffer memory.

The FT800 interfaces to the system microcontroller by a low bandwidth serial interface, allowing for lower cost microcontrollers to be used in the design. The controller”s functionality sets new industry benchmarks, supporting 4-wire resistive touch sensing with built-in intelligent touch detection and an embedded audio processor that allows midi-like sounds, combined with pulse code modulation (PCM) for audio playback. The combination of display, audio, and touch on a single-chip solution enables engineers to produce GUIs that deliver compelling user experiences.

To further support and enhance FTDI”s Embedded Video Engine, Mouser Electronics is also stocking a wide range of complementary development boards for use with the FT800, including the credit-card sized VM800C board series that comes in 3.5″, 4.3″, or 5″ LCD display with a 4-wire resistive touch screen. The VM800B series is similar and is designed for easy mounting inside a bezel. Both boast a USB micro-B port which can also power the board.
