Comet Electronics presents solution to build a graphical user interface (GUI) from FTDI...

FT800 combines graphic, audio and touchscreen controllers in a compact body and a serial connection to the microcontroller. It allows the addition of a complex user interface combining graphics, animation and sound to systems built with low-end microcontrollers having I2C or SPI interface.


Key features:

  • Oriented for TFT panels with resolution of WQVGA (480H272) and QVGA (320x240) with parallel RGB interface;
  • Support 24-bit color (true color);
  • Ability to store and manipulate up to 2000 object that can be graphics, fonts, sounds;
  • PWM control display brightness;
  • Built-in touch screen controller supports 4 wire resistive panels;
  • Lower consumption in active mode and 40mA under 250uA in idle;
  • Compact VQFN-48 package with dimensions 7x7mm.





Comet Electronics offers a development kit VM800 for FT800 containing 4.3 inch display.
