800x480 5 inch Sunlight Readable TFT

Part Number: CFAF800480E1-050SN

This super-bright, sunlight-readable 5-inch TFT LCD uses IPS technology, so it looks great without inverting at extreme viewing angles. This display features a standard 40-pin FPC / ZIF connection and an RGB interface.

This TFT display has plenty of screen real estate to display lots of information inside or outside.

For a display that includes a touchscreen see our 5" IPS TFT with a capacitive touch panel.

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.

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-A2-2. For more information, please see the PCN that describes the change.
