Be in plus with a graphic platform FTDI VM800P

„Plus“ version of new graphic modules FTDI with an EVE technology brings a big plus in a form of a compatibility with an Arduino platform.

This is an archive article published 16.05.2014. Some information may no longer be up to date and in line with the current state. Please contact us in case of interest.
Innovative graphic chips of the family EVE were introduced to you in our article: Is a display design difficult? Leave it to „Eve“! or also in the webinar in cooperation with the producer - FTDI. This time company FTDI comes with another significant step to make development easier - compatibility with an Arduino platform.
New versions of VM800 modules with the „P“ (Plus) suffix contain besides the graphic chip FT800 and a touch display (3,5/4,3 a 5,0“) a RISC procesor ATMEGA328P (16 MHz) with a precompiled Arduino „bootloader“ (from the supplied 4GB uSD card). It means, that applications can be developed in a free Arduino IDE environment and to use a huge amount of Arduino libraries. “Plus” version also contains a USB interface with the FT232R chip and a precise bezel (Black or Pearl). Also available are over 50 sample “EVE” applications including various gauges, keyboards and other usable in a target device. It can be said, that the Plus series is designed to be directly used not only for development, but also into a target device as a standalone graphic module (HMI) able to control even other peripheries and to communicate through a USB port. The module can be powered through a microUSB connector or from an external 5V adapter.
FTDI brings for a maximum versatility two possibilities of programming:
• through a so called HAL interface (Hardware Abstraction Layer ) enabling cooperation with various MCUs through an SPI interface as described in the Application Note 246 - VM800CB_SampleApp_Arduino_Introduction
• by using Arduino libraries as described in the document Application Note 318 - Arduino_Library_For_FT800_Series
Thanks to a close cooperation with the producer we already have first pieces in of VM800P modules in stock. Detailed information can be found in the VM800P datasheet.
