BT81x Series Advanced Embedded Video Engine (EVE)

Bridgetek/FTDI's BT81X series advanced EVE delivers excellent image and text quality with resolutions up to 800 pixels x 600 pixels and true 24-bit color depth creating high-quality human-machine interfaces (HMI) while providing audio, resistive, and capacitive touch functionality options. It is further complemented with EVE graphical design tool chains with built-in smart widgets, animations, and page transitions that ease GUI development enabling engineers to quickly design without much expertise.

Building on the previous generations, the 3rd generation EVE products BT815/816 adopts the adaptive scalable texture compression (ASTC) algorithm which minimizes memory usage for larger fonts and images. Also, a dedicated QSPI Flash host port enables dedicated off-chip memory to be used to extend asset storage and freeing up valuable system SPI bandwidth.

  • BT815/6 functionality includes graphics control, audio control, and touch control interfaces
  • Support multiple widgets for simplified design implementation
  • Support ASTC format to save considerable memory space for larger fonts and graphics images
  • Support external QSPI NOR Flash to fetch graphic elements (image, font, widget, and more)
  • Support 4-wire resistive touch screen (BT816) and capacitive touch screen with up to 5-touch point detection (BT815)
  • Support playback of motion JPEG encoded AVI videos
  • Support for LCD with resolution up to SVGA (800 pixels × 600 pixels) and formats with data enable (DE) mode or VSYNC/HSYNC mode
  • Built-in sound synthesizer
  • Audio wave playback for mono 8-bit linear PCM, 4-bit ADPCM, and µ-Law coding format at sampling frequencies from 8 kHz to 48 kHz
  • Built-in digital filter reduces the system design complexity of external filtering
