Furthermore, it incorporates a fully integrated 2048-byte Multi-Time-Programmable (MTP) memory. Likewise allowing for the storage of device descriptors and CBUS I/O configuration. The device also includes a fully integrated clock generation system, removing the requirement for an external crystal. Additionally, it offers optional clock output selection, enabling a glue-less interface to external MCUs or FPGAs. See also the FT230X Basic UART driver and FT231X – Full Speed USB to Full UART.
To ensure smooth data throughput, the device incorporates a 512-byte receive buffer and a 512-byte transmit buffer that utilizes buffer smoothing technology. This technology enables high-speed data transfer. For ease of use, FTDI provides royalty-free Virtual Com Port (VCP) and Direct (D2XX) drivers, removing the need for USB driver development in most cases. The CBUS I/O pin is configurable, providing flexibility for various applications.
Moreover, the device includes Battery Charger Detection, which is useful for mobile devices to identify the presence of a charger on the USB port. This feature enables higher current and faster charging of batteries. This is the FT201X Full Speed USB to I2C Bridge driver as you can see below.
Additional features include a pre-programmed unique USB serial number, support for various USB configurations (bus powered, self-powered, and high-power bus powered), an integrated +3.3V level converter for USB I/O, and true 3.3V CMOS drive output with TTL input.
The device operates at low power, with a low operating current of 8mA (typical) and a USB suspend current of 125uA (typical). It consumes low USB bandwidth and is suitable for UHCI/OHCI/EHCI host controllers. It is also USB 2.0 Full Speed suitable. Furthermore, the device offers a range operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. It is available in Pb-free 16-pin QFN/SSOP packages, complying with RoHS standards.
By incorporating this chipset, you can provide a USB port to Microcontroller systems, eliminating the need to decompose system software, insert USB, and re-validate. This streamlines the integration process and saves valuable time and effort. Additionally also see other hardware on here such as the CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Driver as well as the FT200XD Full Speed USB to I2C Bridge Driver. Additionally there is also the article on Serial Port Cards.
Moreover, the solution enables motherboard and system monitoring through USB. In addition allowing for efficient monitoring and control of system performance. Additionally, it facilitates the enablement of download capability from PC Host systems. Likewise making it convenient to transfer data and firmware updates to the Microcontroller systems.
Furthermore, this solution provides a USB port to FPGA’s, enabling seamless communication and data transfer between the FPGA and external systems. Another valuable feature is the capability of detecting the presence of USB charging ports. Likewise it allows for the identification of high-current charging capabilities. Likewise this is beneficial for enabling faster and more efficient battery charging in devices that support USB charging.
