Component for display FT813

Post by r_teixeir »

Hi Team,
I was wondering if it is possible to create a display component for the FT813, 800x480px. It also uses the riverdi click to interface with mikroe board. I attached some pics. If it is can somebody help with this

Thanks I appreciate

Rod

That is a very cool setup. It looks pretty easy to deal with. The problem is it does SO MUCH STUFF it would be weeks worth of programing to build a component. I am guessing it isn't cheap either (~$70 for the display+$90 for the screen layout software).

Very cool though.

The Screen layout software is free and is called ESD from FTDI website
I think the general idea is to use the circuit posted on the website and make you own hardware.
Then the touch screen is fairly cheap as you use a standard 40pin RGB with restive or capacitive touch.
The good thing about the FT81x range is it supports image tagging.
That means you assign each shape or image to a tag.
Then keep reading the tag register.
As soon as image is press then the register will be loaded with the correct tag.
No if x > 25 and < 45 etc.
