The UMFT231XA is a development module for FTDI’s FT231XQ, one of the devices from FTDI’s range of USB interface bridging integrated circuit devices. FT231X is a USB to UART 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 FT231X 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 of the on one of the CBUS pin to be used to drive a microprocessor or external logic.
The UMFT231XA-01 is a module which is designed to plug into a standard 0.3″” wide 20 pin DIP socket. All components used, including the FT231XQ are Pb-free (RoHS compliant).
UMFT231XA-01: Long Pin variant – 5.6mm.
UMFT231XA-02: Pin length – 4.6mm.
