SYDNEY – Altium has released PCB design content for its CAD suite users supporting the FTDI FT800 family of HMI solutions.

The FT800 family, which includes the EVE (Embedded Video Engine) Technology, combines display, audio and touch in a single chip. It is said to reduce board area, power and BoM requirements, making it a solution for human machine interface (HMI).

“When EVE development boards were announced last month, Altium support requests quickly followed, indicating their superior market position,” said Fred Dart, CEO and founder, “With validated library support now available from Altium, designers are another step closer to outputting quality system solutions with the FT800 device.”

Offering board design content to support the FTDI FT800 family eliminates the need to develop and validate PCB footprints, schematic symbols and 3D component bodies for FTDI components, the companies said. The content release includes live supply chain solutions providing an accurate picture of overall project BoM cost, and assisting in component sourcing.
