Chip's FT311D IC utilised in new Elektor Arduino Breakout Board
FTDI Chip is proud to announce that our unique FT311D USB bridging device has been utilised by Elektor magazine to create the unique ‘Elektor Arduino Breakout Board’.
Accompanied by a detailed feature within the publication, the PCB acts as a ‘flexible bridge that can interface your circuit to an Android smartphone or tablet’, which thus depletes the requirement for a PC or laptop when programming and reduces the BOM accordingly. Utilising the FT311D USB Android Host IC, connection to the device is possible via USB type A.
