EVE Emulator Library - Behaviour modelling software for the FT800 and FT801 Embedded Video Engine (EVE) HMI display controllers

The EVE Emulator Library is a behaviour modelling software tool through which engineers can emulate the display and touch functions of the FT800 and FT801 without the need for any hardware.

The EVE Emulator Library is the first of the new support resources. This is a behaviour modelling software tool through which engineers can emulate the display and touch functions of the FT800 and FT801 without the need for any hardware. It also allows engineers to quickly create demos to show to their project managers or prospective customers.

Working on the Windows operating system, it is capable of delivering high level emulation. This tool benefits from an exact SPI/I2C interface configuration and consistent memory map of FT800/FT801 silicon. EVE sample applications employ a hardware abstraction layer (HAL) to make the application logic fully independent from the hardware platform. Sample applications can be adapted on the EVE emulator with the need to alter the application logic.

Prerequisite:

Hardware:

A supported Arduino board is required for use with the FTDI Chip libraries. Please consult the "Supported Platforms" section of Application Note 281 (Under 'Resources and Documentation' on this product page) for the targeted platforms, as well as a listing of those utilized during library verification. Note that additional functionality and platforms may be added in the future.
