FT-X Series ICs – Full Speed USB Peripheral Bridges
The new FT-X series of Full Speed USB device bridges offer more interface options with lower power, lower pin count and higher levels of integration.
The devices all include an integrated crystal and an internal Multi-Time-Programmable (MTP) Memory for configuring and storing the device descriptors. Taken together these features provide extra system functionality, thus reducing the system bill of material (BOM) and overall printed circuit board (PCB) real estate.In addition, a new Battery Charger detection feature is now included for use, enabling higher charging currents and shorter charging times.
The FT-X series of devices join FTDI’s renown R series of chips and the H series of USB2.0 Hi-Speed integrated circuites, providing for the widest selection of USB peripheral solutions. So when your system needs to connect to a USB host, add a sub-system, or provide a USB link, be sure to check out FTDI’s product portfolio.
The FT12 series consists of 3 full-speed USB peripheral controller ICs. The FT120 is the basic device designed as a drop-in alternative for PDIUSBD12 designs. The FT122 extends the FT120 design by adding battery charger detection and internal clocking, while the FT121 replaces the parallel interface with an SPI interface allowing for less pin count required from the external processor. All three devices are fully customisable for different USB classes and applications.
The FT311D and FT312D provide a bridge between peripheral hardware and an Android platform with a USB device port. The FT311D will enumerate the Android platform and provide an interface to either, GPIO, UART, PWM, I2C Master, SPI Slave or SPI Master, while the FT312D has optimised buffering for fast UART transfer. Note, proper compatibility requires Android Open Accessory Mode, available in Android platforms 3.1 onwards.
The FT313H is a general purpose USB2.0 Hi-Speed, EHCI Host controller designed for integration with microcontrollers via numerous parallel bus options and offering battery charger emulation on the downstream port to enable optimized charging with higher currents.
