IC/Module: FT2232H IC
FT2232H is a hi-speed dual USB UART/FIFO IC that belongs to FTDI's 5th generation of USB devices. This chip can be easily configured in different industry standard serial or parallel interfaces. It features two multi-protocol synchronous serial engines (MPSSEs) for simultaneous communication using JTAG, I2C and SPI interfaces on two channels.
Depending on the position of the J1, J2 and J3, FTDI Click communicates with the target microcontroller. The SMD jumpers allow the user to select I2C or UART communication interface (in UART position by default).
Ideal Choice for USB Applications
In FDTI Click, as the entire USB protocol is handled on the FT2232H chip. The chip does not require any specific USB firmware programming, which makes it a favourable choice for a range of USB applications, including digital camera interface, MP3 player interface, smart card readers, etc.
