This is the FT602 SuperSpeed USB3.0 module that does not require a driver like the F600 and FT601 series modules. The FT602 is a FIFO interface to SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.1 Gen 1) USB Video Class (UVC) bridge chip, designed to support the streaming of video content from HD camera equipment.

Consequently, imaging systems that were previously limited to delivering lower resolution material can now achieve significantly better video quality while running at 60fps frame rates.
This improvement in performance can be leveraged when viewing captured imaging data through standard UVC-enabled hardware. This is also widely used media players such as the VLC Player. As a result, users can enjoy greater convenience without the need for significant investments to upgrade existing systems. Likewise develop new systems from scratch. Furthermore, the implementation is straightforward as no custom drivers are required, enabling seamless plug-and-play functionality.
The FT602 series is a valuable addition to FTDI Chip’s FT60X series, which includes the FT600 and FT601 ICs, offering the most comprehensive USB 3.0 range in the industry. These devices support both USB 3.0 SuperSpeed (5Gbps) and USB 2.0 High-Speed (480Mbps) interfacing. They feature a 32-bit parallel FIFO interface for data streaming and a UART interface for control path configuration. Supplied in 76-pin QFN packages, these devices have a specified working temperature range from -40°C to 85°C.
