FT81x Series ICs - Embedded Video Engine (EVE)

Bridgetek/FTDI's high-resolution graphics, audio control, and touch control, all in an integrated circuit

Image of FTDI's FT81x Series ICs - Embedded Video Engine (EVE) Bridgetek's EVE technology from Bridgetek/FTDI is a revolutionary idea that supports high-resolution graphics, audio control, and touch control in one integrated circuit (IC). The products utilize an object-oriented methodology for creating high-quality human-machine interfaces (HMIs). The FT81x family builds on from the first generation of FT80x EVE touch display controller ICs. The FT81x family consists of four devices, which extends the capabilities and offers many improvements over the past generation.

The FT81x family provides high resolution, faster data transfer, faster image and video loading, and a larger memory capacity that helps engineers design advanced and sophisticated HMIs while providing a lower bill of materials. The family consists of

  • FT810Q-T: an 18-bit RGB, resistive touch control
  • FT811Q-T: an 18-bit RGB, capacitive touch control
  • FT812Q-T: a 24-bit RGB, resistive touch control
  • FT813Q-T: a 24-bit RGB, capacitive touch control
