Product Details

EVE, Embedded Video Engine Plus

The VM801P is a Graphics Display Development Kit by FTDI chip that is designed to work alongside the FT801. It is used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT801 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. The VM801P is a stand-alone display system which has a flash based microcontroller on board, thus providing a fully integrated display system that is ready to go.

The VM801P supports many I/O daughter cards or shields for expanding external interfacing and control. These shields use 1 or 2 Micro-MaTch miniature connectors to interface to the VM801P main module. Users will be able to purchase shields from FTDI Chip in the coming months, or alternatively can build their own shield for specific applications.
The VM801P series of modules support 2 different LCD panel size options and are designed for industrial or commercial environments with precision fitted bezels in either black (-BK) or pearl (-PL).

The VM801B43A-xx is the 4.3” LCD and the VM801B50A-xx is the 5.0” LCD
The VM801P utilises the FTDI FT801 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. Graphic, audio and capacitive touch features of the FT801 chip can be accessed with the VM801P.
