FTDI has announced the introduction of the FT800, Embedded Video Engine (EVE).
FTDI Chip is redefining the cost and quality paradigm for graphic user interface (GUI) development with the introduction of the FT800, Embedded Video Engine (EVE). With 3 in 1 functionality including display, audio, and touch operations, engineers now have an advanced solution to easily create and output state-of-the-art interactive display systems. Targeted at QVGA and WQVGA TFT display panels, EVE’s object orientated approach eliminates the traditional frame buffer memory as it renders an image, on a line by line basis, to 1/16th pixel resolution.Simply, initialize the object memory, then control the objects and their attributes by creating and manipulating a small display list buffer, which can be done even with a low-end 8-bit CPU. The embedded audio controller allows midi-like sounds or PCM audio playback. Packaged in a space-saving 48LD QFN package, the FT800 comes preloaded with a useful set of fonts and sounds in ROM, making it suitable for many applications.
They anticipate mass market release later in 2013.
