  Vinculum - Embedded USB Host Controller IC  
 
Key Hardware Features
 
     
 
  • Vinculum (VNC1L) - Embedded USB Host Controller
  • Vinculum-II (VNC2) - Programmable USB 2.0 Host
 
 

The Vinculum family of devices allow the implementation of USB host controller functionality within products, thus saving development time and costs by using FTDI's tried and tested firmware programmed into internal, easily upgradeable Flash memory.

The Vinculum family of USB Host Controller ICs not only handle the USB Host Interface, and data transfer functions but owing to the inbuilt 8/32-bit MCU and embedded Flash memory, vinculum encapsulates the USB device classes as well. When interfacing to mass storage devices such as USB Flash drives, vinculum also transparently handles the FAT file structure communicating via UART, SPI or parallel FIFO interfaces via a simple to implement command set. The vinculum device features two USB Ports which can be individually configured by firmware as Host or Slave ports.

vinvulum brings cost effective USB Host capability to products that previously did not have the hardware resources available. Viniculum devices will be especially popular for adding USB Flash drive connectivity to a wide range of consumer and industrial products. Viniculum family comes complete with FTDI's in-house developed firmware, there are no USB software stacks to license, indeed, no knowledge of USB is required to use these devices.

The initial product member of the family is the VNC1L device which features two USB Ports which can be individually configured by firmware as Host or Slave ports.

  FT800 EVE - Embedded Video Engine, LCD Controller  
 
Key Hardware Features
 
     
 

FTDI Chip is redefining the cost and quality paradigm for graphic user interface (GUI) development with the introduction of the FT800, Embedded Video Engine (EVE). With 3 in 1 functionality including display, audio, and touch operations, engineers now have an advanced solution to easily create and output state-of-the-art interactive display systems. Targeted at QVGA and WQVGA TFT display panels, EVEs object orientated approach eliminates the traditional frame buffer memory as it renders an image, on a line by line basis, to 1/16th pixel resolution. Simply, initialize the object memory, then control the objects and their attributes by creating and manipulating a small display list buffer, which can be done even with a low-end 8-bit CPU. The embedded audio controller allows midi-like sounds or PCM audio playback. Packaged in a space-saving 48LD QFN package, the FT800 comes preloaded with a useful set of fonts and sounds in ROM, making it suitable for many applications.

 
 
  • Targeted at QVGA and WQVGA resolution TFT displays with parallel RGB interface
  • Dithering hardware provides 24-bit (true colour) support on an 18-bit interface
  • 256k internal object memory
  • Store up to 2000 objects in 8k byte display list
  • Inbuilt controller supports 4-wire resistive touch panels
  • PWM output for programmable display brightness
  • Anti-aliasing support improves display perception
  • Low-power - 35mA typical in active mode down, and 25uA in sleep mode
  • Widgets (innovation mechanisms) allow easy creation of complex objects (e.g analog clocks)
    Integrated audio output - play beeps, tones or recorded audio
  • SPI or I2C interface to system microcontroller

  FT232R - USB UART IC  
 

FT232 chip can bridge the commonly used industry-standard serial interfaces to USB with entire USB protocol handled on the chip. The supported serial protocols include RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 at up to 3 Mega baud data transfer rate.

The latest version is FT232R. It integrates EEPROM and clock generator into the chip, and provides 5 extra customer-configurable I/O pins, and offers FTDIChip-ID security protection features. It also supports wide logic signal levels from 5V down to 1.8V, and -40C to 85C industrial operating temperature range.

The FT232R adds two new functions compared with its predecessors, effectively making it a "3-in-1" chip for some application areas. The internally generated clock (6MHz, 12MHz, 24MHz, and 48MHz) can be brought out of the device and used to drive a microcontroller or external logic. A unique number (the FTDIChip-ID) is burnt into the device during manufacture and is readable over USB, thus forming the basis of a security dongle which can be used to protect customer application software from being copied.

The FT232R is available in Pb-free (RoHS compliant) compact 28-Lead SSOP and QFN-32 packages.
