The UMFT201XE-01 is a development module for FTDI’s FT201XQ, one of the devices from FTDI’s range of USB interface bridging integrated circuit devices. FT201X is a USB to I2C interface with a battery charger detection feature, which can allow batteries to be charged with a higher current from a dedicated charger port (without the FT201X being enumerated). In addition, asynchronous and synchronous bit bang interface modes are available. The internally generated clock (6MHz, 12MHz and 24MHz) can be brought out on one of the CBUS pins to be used to drive a microprocessor or external logic.
The UMFT201XE-01 is a module which is designed to plug into a standard 0.6″” wide 16 pin DIP socket. All components used, including the FT201XQ are Pb-free (RoHS compliant).
