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.
We are changing this product by upgrading the FTDI chip to an FT817 and adding external flash to support storing image data. Changing to the new controller will require some slight software modifications for the touch versions.
In addition, we will be adding a resistive touch option as well as a cap touch option with glass that exceeds the frame of the display for an extended mounting surface.
Current PCB Version: h0v2
Current Firmware Version: f0v0
Upgrade the EVE chip and add compatibility with the resistive touch display.
