800x480 5" EVE Display Dev Kit

Part Number: CFA800480E3-050SN-KIT

This development kit makes getting started with the 5" EVE module as easy as can be. The kit includes the fantastic 5" TFT EVE display module, an EVE breakout board, and a Seeeduino wired together and running a demonstration for the display. This display is sunlight readable and requires more current for the backlight than the Seeeduino can supply, so the demonstration requires that you supply power to the breakout board to power the display backlight.

In addition to being sunlight-readable, the included display is IPS, so it has extremely wide viewing angles. Additionally, the module includes the BT817 EVE chip. Read more about the benefits of EVE displays on our blog.

This part is a replacement for the CFAF800480E1-050SN-A1-2. The for more information, please see the PCN that describes the change.
