FTDI VM800C Embedded Video Engine Board

Overview

The VM800C is a development module for FTDI’s FT800, which is used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT800 Embedded Video Engine, EVE. This module behaves as an SPI slave, and requires a SPI Master for proper microcontroller interfacing and system integration.

Requirements

This shield requires a board which provides a configuration that allows an SPI interface and an interrupt signal. (see Shields for more details).

Sample usage

You can try use FT800 with the Zephyr FT800 sample, which provides out-of-the-box configuration for FT800 Embedded Video engine. See FT800 for details.

Build and Programming

Set -DSHIELD=<shield designator> when you invoke west build.

west build -b nrf52840dk_nrf52840 samples/drivers/misc/ft800 -- -DSHIELD=ftdi_vm800c
west flash
