VM810C - FT810 development module

The VM810C is a development module for Bridgetek's FT810, and can be supplied with or without a display.

The VM810C50A is a development module designed for the FT810 IC,  which may be used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of this resistive touch controller. The module behaves as an SPI slave, and requires an external SPI Master for proper microcontroller interfacing and system integration. The VM810C development systems are credit-card sized and support 5" TLCD controllers.

Included on the module is a speaker for audio output and a 0.1" pitch connector socket for connecting to the SPI interface of the host system MCU. Power can be supplied via the SPI pin header, or a micro-USB connector, or a 2-pin DC input connector.

The VM810C50A-D comes equipped with a 5" resistive touch display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution, while the VM810C50A-N is provided without the display to enable users to fit a compatible display of their choosing.

  • Micro USB, SPI connector or 2-pin connector for power supply
  • 3.3V regulator : Takes 5V input and outputs 3.3V for on-board circuits
  • WVGA(800x480) TFT LCD touch screen panel (for the VM810C50A-D module)
  • LCD backlight driver. On board back light driver has over voltage protection (OVP) of 34V, and drive current 60mA.
  • 5V tolerant buffers between the SPI master interface and the Slave interface of the FT810
  • SPI timing requirements can be referenced in the FT810 datasheet. The on board level converter buffers introduce additional delay. The actual maximum SPI clock frequency depends on the host system timing and connection cable length to the VM810C.
