The UMFT240XE is a development module for FTDI‟s FT240XQ, one of the devices from FTDI‟s range of USB to serial data interface integrated circuit devices. FT240X is a USB to 245 FIFO interface with a battery charging feature, which can allow batteries to be charged with a higher current from a dedicated charger port (without the FT240X being enumerated).
In addition, asynchronous and synchronous bit bang interface modes are available. The internally generated clock (6MHz, 12MHz, 24MHz and 48MHz) can be brought out of the on one of the CBUS pin to be used to drive a microprocessor or external logic.
The UMFT240XE is a module which is designed to plug into a standard 0.6” wide 24 pin DIP socket. All components used, including the FT240XQ are Pb-free (RoHS compliant).
