VM801P – FT801 Development Platform
Bridgetek supports two programming solutions for the VM801P module, the HAL and the Arduino libraries. The architecture of both development systems can be seen within the block diagrams below:
The first diagram portrays a sample application using the HAL structure, which is further detailed in Application Note 246 – VM800CB SampleApp Arduino Introduction. The sample application is designed to easily port to numerous MCUs over SPI by introducing one generic Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL), which can then be used as a guideline for other platforms.
Alternatively, by utilising the Arduino library as outlined in Application Note 318 – Arduino Library For FT800 Series the engineer benefits from dedicated library support and examples, and can operate over the popular and easy to use Arduino IDE, using a pre-programmed Arduino Bootloader.
