USB solutions specialist Future Technology Devices International Limited (FTDI), available through GLYN High-Tech Distribution, has supplemented its portfolio of USB to serial interface products with the release of its new X-Chip series.

The X-Chip Series of Next Generation USBInterface ICs from FTDI operates on low power and low pin count, which includes integrated USB battery charger detection capability. 
  • The series is compatible with a broad selection of interfaces, UART, full UART, FIFO and I2C, as well as FTDI’s proprietary FT1248 I/O (including provision for enhanced SPI). 
The feature-rich USB 2.0 interface solution will enhance system performance and allow engineers to simultaneously address board level concerns, such as space utilisation and power consumption.
  • Devices in the series are capable of data rates of up to 3.4 Mbits/s, while maintaining low power consumption
  • Simpler detection process- The X-Chip has built-in functionality to detect a charging port and cause logic to switch from data transfer to charging mode
  • Supports Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows XP
    Embedded, Windows CE, Mac OS-X, Linux 3.2 (and above), plus Android operating
  • Operational temperature range of -40 °C to +85°C

Since the USB protocol is handled by the device, the need for the programming of USB specific firmware can be negated.
  • An internal 2048 byte, multi-time programmable (MTP) memory enables storage and configuration of the necessary device descriptors

The devices in the X-Chip series are offered in compact SSOP, QFN and DFN packages. Made up of devices in 13 different package options, the X-Chip series complements the company’s existing FT-R and FT-H offerings.
