Eve, the embedded Video Engine. FTDI Chip has redefined the cost and quality paradigm for graphic user interface (GUI) development with the introduction of the FT8XX range of display products with Embedded VideoE ngine (EVE) technology. The EVE family combines display, audio and touch into a single chip, providing an optimized solution with high quality graphics that output to /16th pixel resolution for WVGA, VGA, SVGA (FT81x), WQVGA and QVGA (FT80x) TFT display panels.
The first device in the series, the FT800, launched in 2013 and took the titles of British Engineering Excellence ‘Electronic Product of the Year’ and Elektra ‘Digital Semiconductor of the year’, within the same year, where the product was described as providing ‘versatility and innovation’ and ‘the technological capabilities with efficiencies that differentiate it from its competitors’. With its revolutionary EVE technology deploying an object-oriented approach, the series can simplify the implementation of intelligent displays – reducing bill of material costs, power budget, board space, and development time.
The wide range of products includes an extensive choice of development systems including the ‘Basic’ series of modules, which feature an SPI interfaced subsystem, the ‘Plus’ series of modules providing an Arduino compatible ecosystems and the ‘ME’ series of daughter boards for FTDI Chip’s FT90x 32bit MCU series. In addition to this, an extensive library of technical documentation, application sample software and design tools provide a simple solution for engineers to further shorten design cycles and reduce BOM costs.
