  MPSSE Example Projects

This page contains examples specific to the Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE) of the FT2232D, FT2232H, FT4232H and FT232H devices.

 

  • LibMPSSE-I2C (Recommended)
    FTDI have produced a newly updated library to handle all the MPSSE commands necessary to interface to a device using the I2C protocol.  A separate page has been created where the LibMPSSE library can be downloaded, along with code examples and release notes. The user guide is available as AN_177.

  • LibMPSSE-SPI (Recommended)
    FTDI have provided a new library to configure the MPSSE for emulating SPI. A separate page has been created where the LibMPSSE-SPI library can be downloaded, along with examples and release notes.  The user guide is available as AN_178.

  • FTCJTAG DLL (This code is no longer supported by FTDI)
    FTDI have also produced a DLL to handle all the MPSSE commands necessary to interface to a device using the JTAG protocol.  As with our FTCI2C DLL, a separate page has been created where the FTCJTAG DLL can be downloaded, along with code examples.

 

 

The MPSSE can be configured directly using D2XX commands.  The following Delphi examples on this page illustrate how to achieve this for several popular protocols:

 

 

 

  Host Bus Emulation Mode
Overview

 

This is an example project that demonstrates using the FT2232D's Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE) controller to perform MCU host bus control of an AT-Bus.  The executable application and the full project code (in Delphi) are provided.

 

 

Requirements

 

This project is designed to run on Windows 2000 or Windows XP and requires FTDI's D2XX drivers to be installed.

  USB to SPI

Our thanks go to Bob Freeth for providing this VB6 example of using the FT2232D MPSSE for SPI communication with a MAX187 ADC.

 

Source code and executable are available for free downloadThis code is provided "as-is" for illustration purposes only and as such neither FTDI or Bob Freeth provide technical support for this VB6 code.

 
  USB to I2C

This is project is a free download containing source and executable to support AN_255.

 

The code will demonstrate connecting a FT232H in MPSSE mode to emulate an I2C master interface that interacts with the FT201X USB to I2C bridge.
