In order to keep this display in production over the long term, we are revising it to a new part number. Any backorders placed now will be fulfilled with the new part when it becomes available. Please contact support with any questions.

480x128 EVE Bar-Type TFT LCD

Part Number: CFAF480128A0-039TC-A1-1

This display module is made up of a neat 3.9" display with a wide aspect ratio mounted to an accelerator board that includes and FTDI/BridgeTek Embedded Video Engine (EVE) chip. The accelerator board is specifically designed for the display, resulting in a nice fit, perfect to be used in any project.

This bar-type display module is great for rack-mount applications and fits in a 1U rack. Its unusual shape lends itself to a wide variety of applications. This TFT module has rear-facing pem-nuts so it's easy to secure in an enclosure.

  • Great for rack-mount applications
  • Slim design with rear-facing pem-nuts for easy fastening to an enclosure
  • EVE2 accelerator
  • Capacitive touch
  • 30-pin FPC / ZIF Connection
For more information about the display, see the 3.9" bar-type display product page.

Why use EVE?
  • Simplified control of all touch handling, display, audio, and backlight
  • EVE UI design software for your PC simplifies the design process
  • Enhanced sketch processing
  • Supports playback of motion-JPEG encoded AVI videos
  • Mono audio channel output with wave playback and built-in sound synthesizer
  • PWM output for display backlight dimming control

For more information on EVE, see our FTDI/BridgeTek EVE benefits blog post.

Need a breakout board? The EVE Breakout Board breaks out the connections to the EVE module to 0.1" headers for easy development.

Don't forget you'll need a cable to connect the display to the EVE Breakout Board. For that we have a 6-inch 30-pin FPC Cable and a 12-inch 30-pin FPC.

Need a complete Seeeduino/Arduino development kit that includes this display module, the EVE breakout board, a Seeeduino, and the necessary connectors? Check out the 480x128 EVE bar-type development kit.
