800x480 5" EVE TFT Display

Part Number: CFA800480E3-050SN

This TFT display module includes a vibrant 5" TFT display mounted on an accelerated graphics embedded video engine (EVE) board. The EVE chip simplifies the creation of a beautiful user interface by leveraging FTDI/Bridgetek's development tools.

The included 5" TFT display is a beauty. It is sunlight readable (1,000 nits), IPS, and 16M colors. That means whatever you want to display will be visible in most lighting conditions and from wide angles.

The board on this TFT module does some heavy lifting. A 30-pin ZIF / FFC connector brings in all the necessary signals for the display. The board boosts up the input voltage (3.3 to 5 volts) to power the backlight, and the included EVE chip can control the backlight, display, and audio. Plus, with six threaded mounts (size 2-56), securing this module in your project is easy.

This is a replacement for CFAF800480E1-050SN-A2. Please see Product Change Notice 11178 for more information.
