FT81x - Display audio and touch controller IC solutions

The FT81x series builds on the 1st generation FT80x display controllers and provides increased pixel resolution for sharper imagery, increased speed for faster data transfer and image/video loading, and larger memory capacity.

Building on the success of the first generation of FT80x touch controller ICs with Embedded Video Engine (EVE) technology, the series has now been extended to include a further four devices which offer a plethora of improvements and extended capabilities, the FT81x series. The FT810, FT811, FT812 and FT813 provide increased pixel resolution for sharper imagery, increased speed for faster data transfer and image/video loading, and larger memory capacity.

Key Hardware Features

  • Maximum screen resolution increased from 512x512 pixels to 800x600 pixels
  • Bitmap size increased from 18-bit to 24-bit (FT812 and FT813)
  • Extra large ROM fonts added
  • Orientation switching support added with REG ROTATE and CMD SETROTATE
  • Main memory increased from 256kBytes to 1Mbyte
  • Master clock frequency improvement - REG PCLK can now be 1
  • Smooth back-motion JPG encoded AVI video playback
  • Multiple 16/32 bit colour palettes supported with transparency
  • L2 format supported for efficient DXT1-style bitmaps
  • CMD MEDIAFIFO specifies an area of main memory to use as a FIFO for JPG, AVI and PNG loading
  • Multiple numeric formats supported including binary, octal, decimal and hex
  • Simplified font loading with CMD SETFONT2
  • MCU transfer with QSPI interface option

Performance Improvements

  • 500-1000 times faster JPG loading
  • Pixel clock drawing increased from 4 to 16 pixels per clock
  • Fetch cull primitives per clock boosted from 1 to 2
  • Quicker Firmware memory operations (e.g. copy, fill, CRC) due to tuned inner loops
  • CMD SNAPSHOT hundreds of times faster
