VA800A-SPI USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to MPSSE SPI Module
The USB2.0 Hi-Speed to MPSSE SPI Module,VA800A-SPI, is a small electronic circuit board, utilising the FT232H. The 10 pin connector on the module fits directly to the Bridgetek VM800B and VM800C graphic display modules.
This allows direct control of the EVE FT800 devices with an SPI interface from a USB host.
Full details of the VA800A-SPI module can be foundhere.
All USB signalling and protocols are handled on the module. For full details of the FT232H IC, consult the FT232H datasheet.
There is an FTDI FT232H chip on the VI800A module and the FT232H datasheet is availablehere. Please install the VCP and D2XX driver by the setup executable and it is availablehere.
VI800A – EVE Plug-in boards
An exciting range of expansion cards for the VM800P module which allow EVE to connect to a wider system and become the focal point of the system’s control and display interface.
