This completely Arduino-compatible module features an FT800 chip for three in one operation (display, audio and touch) and its FT232R USB UART interface IC for MCU programming and communications, controlled from an inbuilt ATMEGA328P microcontroller operating at 5V/16MHz. Programming and configuration is easily achieved via the Arduino IDE, using a pre-programmed Arduino-compatible bootloader.

The development system offers a hi-quality system with an elegantly designed, precision fit bezel that provides a resistive touch panel sensor and component board in a rugged, plastic enclosure. Offered in black (-BK) or pearl (-PL) colours, the device provides the engineer a low priced option which can shorten development time while enabling a production finished look for 3.5", 4.3" or 5" colour TFT display solutions.

An abundance of enhanced features are included in the 'Plus' module: a backlit LED driver, inbuilt audio amplifier and micro-speaker, Real Time Clock (RTC) with battery backup, on-board 3.3v/5v level shifters, e-Flash IC build option, and a Micro-SD Card socket for application store plus 4GB SD card pre-loaded with 11 interactive application demonstrations and one library of free running apps, showcasing just a few examples of what this innovative device, designed primarily for industrial and commercial purpose, could be used for. The Arduino-compatible display system development platforms run off a standard 5V,delivered via a micro-USB or an auxiliary power connector. Furthermore, Micro-MaTch miniature connectors are provided to further extend functionality, and plug in card connectors are available to expand the IO capability to include GPIO, RS232, RS422, RS485 and Ethernet, promoting improved connectivity and the ability to transmit over longer distances.
