F600/FT601 Series Driver

The F600/FT601 Series driver can be downloaded on here. Moreover, the FT600 and FT601 SuperSpeed USB3.0 ICs enable faster and higher volume data transfers than ever before. Consequently, they provide USB access to a wider range of data intensive imaging and data acquisition applications.

F600/FT601 Series Driver

Furthermore, the series incorporates two vendor class USB devices supported by the D3XX driver. These devices, namely the FT600 and FT601, function as SuperSpeed USB3.0 to FIFO bridges, providing up to 5Gbps of bandwidth. The FT600, available in a 56-pin QFN package, features a 16-bit wide FIFO bus interface, while the FT601, offered in a 76-pin package, boasts a 32-bit wide FIFO bus interface.

Both chips offer support for up to 8 endpoints, accompanied by 2 additional communication endpoints, thereby allowing the creation of up to 4 data IN and 4 data OUT channels. Moreover, they facilitate double buffering of up to 4kByte length for IN and 4kByte for OUT.

Hardware Features

Likewise this supports various USB transfer speeds. In addition including USB3.0 SuperSpeed (5Gbps). Thus the USB High Speed (480Mbps), and USB 2.0 Full Speed (12Mbps), is available. Moreover, it is accompanied by a choice between a 16-bit or 32-bit wide parallel FIFO interface.

Furthermore, the device supports two parallel slave FIFO bus protocols. Likewise enabling a data bursting rate of up to 400MBps. It also facilitates a multi-channel FIFO interface for enhanced functionality. Additionally, it offers flexibility with up to 8 configurable endpoints (pipes) and features a built-in 16kB FIFO data buffer RAM.
