FTDI Chip's FT311D IC utilised in new Elektor Android Breakout Board
FTDI Chip is proud to announce that our
unique FT311D USB bridging device has been utilised by Elektor magazine
to create the innovative ‘Elektor Android Breakout Board’. With its release accompanied by a detailed feature within the publication, this 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. An article providing full detail on the board is available
