FT601Q-B USB 3.0 Sync FIFO Driver

The FT601Q-B USB 3.0 Sync FIFO driver with the FT601 SuperSpeed USB3.0 chips offer USB access to a wider range of devices which as data-intensive such as imaging as well as data acquisition sensors and devices. Likewise you will note that the series includes two vendor class USB devices.

Note that this chip works on the D3XX driver. This chip acts like the USB 3.0 to FIFO bridge. This provides the chip with up to 5Gbps of bandwidth. Additionally this chip is comes in a 76-pin package. Lastly it features a 32-bit wide FIFO bus interface.

The chip supports up to 8 endpoints, with 2 additional communication endpoints, allowing for the creation of up to 4 data IN and 4 data OUT channels. This is made possible through double buffering, with a capacity of up to 4kByte length for IN and 4kByte for OUT.

Notably, the series is designed for ease of connection and control, requiring no additional firmware development. It can be seamlessly integrated into the system, just like a “fit and forget” solution. Furthermore, this device is featured alongside our full range of USB products in our USB brochure, which you can access here.

Chip Usage

  • Utilising USB to add system modularity
  • USB3.0 Digital Video Camera Interface
  • Cellular and Cordless Phone USB data transfer cables and interfaces
  • Medical/Industrial imaging devices

Now let’s explore the key hardware features of the FT601 SuperSpeed USB3.0 ICs. They provide support for USB3.0 SuperSpeed (5Gbps), USB High Speed (480Mbps), and USB 2.0 Full Speed (12Mbps) transfers. Additionally, the devices are available with either a 16-bit or 32-bit wide parallel FIFO interface. They support 2 parallel slave FIFO bus protocols with a data bursting rate of up to 400MBps, and also facilitate a multi-channel FIFO interface.

Moreover, the FT601 offers up to 8 configurable endpoints (pipes) and incorporates a built-in 16kB FIFO data buffer RAM. It supports multi-voltage I/O, including 1.8V, 2.5V, and 3.3V. Likewise it provides configurable GPIO support. The device also includes features such as Remote Wakeup capability. Note that there is also a USB Battery Charger Detection, and an integrated power-on-reset circuit. Finally it operates within an extended temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. Likewise it is available in compact Pb-free QFN-76 packages for the 32-bit variant.
