Description This is a revolutionary new 5", 800x480 TFT that boasts high-brightness, sunlight readability. It's based around an FTDI/BridgeTek FT813 Embedded Video Engine (EVE). All display, touch sensing, backlight control and audio features are controlled via the Embedded Video Engine which appears to the host MCU as a memory-mapped SPI device. The host MCU sends commands and data over the EVE SPI serial protocol.
For detailed information on the Embedded Video Engine, please see the FTDI FT81x Datasheet.
Further information including programming examples, interface design software, and more can be found on FTDI’s website here: https://www.ftdichip.com/Support/Utilities.htm
