3" 240x400 EVE TFT Display

Part Number: CFA240400E1-030TN

This display module combines a 3" TFT display with an embedded video engine (EVE) PCB for a powerful display module. The EVE PCB, powered by an FTDI/Bridgetek FT81x, accepts high-level commands, simplifying the creation of beautiful interfaces.

EVE Graphics Accelerator features include:
  • User interface design software by FTDI/Bridgetek to simplify the design process
  • Enhanced sketch processing
  • Anti-aliasing of primitive displayed objects
  • PWM output for display backlight dimming control
  • Support playback of motion-JPEG encoded AVI videos
  • 30-pin FPC / ZIF Connection
Find out more about the powerful EVE chip on our blog.

The TFT display included in this module is a 3" TFT with a resolution of 240x400.

We have everything you need to develop with the FTDI EVE platform including 12-inch 30-pin FPC cables, 6-inch 30-pin FPC cables and an EVE breakout board, and any product support you may need.

The complete 3" 240x400 Full-Color EVE development kit for this module is also available. The development kit includes everything needed to get this display module working.

This model does not have a touch screen. For a 3" EVE module with touch, check out the 240x400 Touchscreen EVE TFT.
