    • VM801P Embedded Video Engine Plus Module - 5 inch LCD


    The VM801P is a development module for FTDI’s FT801, which is used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT801 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. The VM801P is a stand-alone display system which has a flash based microcontroller on board, thus providing a fully integrated display system ready to go.

    The VM801P supports many I/O daughter cards or shields for expanding external interfacing and control. These shields use 1 or 2 Micro-MaTch miniature connectors to interface to the VM801P main module. Users will be able to purchase shields from FTDI Chip in the coming months, or alternatively can build their own shield for specific applications.
