FTDI Chip simplifies USB technology

FTDI Chip simplifies USB technology

It can provide USB 2.0 Full Speed (12Mbps) connectivity to a broad range of applicatioms - including connection of touchscreens, computer peripherals and IoT sensing apparatus, as well as USB interfacing of microcontroller or programmable logic centric system designs, plus industrial automation equipment and USB instrumentation. Supplied in 28-pin SSOP and 28-pin QFN package options, these USB bridge chips have dual HID interface support, with I2 C and UART bus conversion capabilities. As the entire USB protocol is handled on the chip, the FT260 offering presents engineers with a plug-and-play solution that is simple to incorporate into contemporary embedded system designs. These ICs employ standard class drivers, which means it is not necessary to worry about installing complex vendor- specific drivers. Their flexible IOs mean they are compatible with 1.8V to 3.3V systems...
