Note that this is the FT231X specifications and not that of the FT230X IC also on this website which are all manufactured by FTDI. The FT231X is also extensively used in adapter cables for computers as well as televisions and these have been listed below. It offers a compact bridge to full handshake UART interfaces. The IC makes it easy to add to a system design and it also offers the full FT-X series feature set as can be seen below.
