VM800P Embedded Video Engine Plus Module


FTDI's VM800P is a development module for FTDI’s FT800, which is used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT800 Embedded Video Engine, EVE.

The VM800P is a stand-alone display system which has a flash based microcontroller on board, thus providing a fully-integrated display system ready to go. The VM800P supports many I/O daughtercards or shields for expanding external interfacing and control. These shields use 1 or 2 Micro-MaTch miniature connectors to interface to the VM800P 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 VM800P series of modules support three different LCD panel size options and are designed for industrial or commercial environments with precision-fitted bezels in either black (-BK) or pearl (-PL)
  • VM800P35A-xx is the 3.5" LCD
  • VM800P43A-xx is the 4.3" LCD
  • VM800P50A-xx is the 5.0" LCD
The VM800P utilizes the FTDI FT800 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. Graphic, audio, and touch features of the FT800 chip can be accessed with the VM800P.
