FTDI Chip develops innovative silicon solutions that enhance interaction with the latest in global technology.
The major objective from the company is to ‘bridge technologies’ in order to support engineers with highly sophisticated,
feature-rich, robust and simple-to-use product platforms. These platforms enable creation of electronic designs with high
performance, low peripheral component requirements, low power budgets and minimal board real estate.
FTDI Chip’s long-established, continuously expanding Universal Serial Bus (USB) product line boasts such universally
recognized product brands as the ubiquitous R-Chip, X-Chip, Hi-Speed and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 series. In addition to both
host and bridge chips, it includes highly-integrated system solutions with built-in microcontroller functionality.
The company’s Embedded Video Engine (EVE) graphic controllers each pack display, audio and touch functionality onto a
single chip. The unique, streamlined approach utilised by these ICs allow dramatic reductions in the development time and
bill-of-materials costs involved in next generation Human Machine Interface (HMI) implementation. FTDI Chip also provides
families of highly-differentiated, speed-optimised microcontroller units (MCUs) with augmented connectivity features,
specifically designed with compatibility to its USB and Display product lines in mind. These MCUs are targeted for key
applications where they can add value with their superior processing performance and high levels of operational efficiency.
FTDI Chip is a fab-less semiconductor company, partnered with the world’s leading foundries. The headquarter is
located in Glasgow, UK and is supported with research and development facilities in Glasgow, Singapore and Taipei (Taiwan)
plus regional sales and technical support sites in Glasgow, Taipei, Tigard (Oregon, USA) and Shanghai (China).
