I've used the ft245 module in a previous design. The FTDA driver is more than enough to communicate with this module. You can build a Visual Basic routine to check the buffer status and directly communicate with the USB module.

Can I use the FT232 or the ft245 to build something different of a USB<>Serial ?
Maybe something like a sound card or a web cam ? Or the only way that the computer can recognize that ICs is like a serial bridge ?

FTDI's "D2XX Direct Drivers" for Windows offer an alternative solution to our VCP drivers and allow application software to interface with FT232 and ft245 devices using a DLL instead of a Virtual Com Port. Both AM and BM series devices are supported. The architecture of the D2XX drivers consists of a Windows WDM driver which communicates with the d

I'm using the Intel(r) 823801BA/BAM USB Univaersal Host Controller.
I'm not sure whether this is the one you ask for.
:-) nicleo asked about another side of USB cable. Which USB controller do you use together with your 8051 uC? Is it embedded USB, like on C8051F321? Or external like ft245 or one from Cypress?
I guess it

If your transfer rate is low you can use FTDI chip for transfering data
use the ft245 easy and simple
For high speed transfer you will need to design your product using more complex methode cypress,Ti,philips and other have chips who can handle high speed data transfer using the USB port
All the best

Well, First of all, USB is not that boring! it has come from some sort of TELCO world, which is slightly different from computer science camp which makes the entire protocol stack slightly strange. second, if you ever intend to use any of the FTDI chip family (FT232, ft245, FT2232 are the most well known and the most recent) you do not need to know

You can use FT232 or ft245 in bitbang mode. In this mode you can control from PC side, each pin, individually. In the PC application (VB, what you preffer), you will have to write the programming protocol. It is not the fastest way, the programming may take a time, but it is one of the cheapest.

I want to modify the design of PC base oscilloscope given here
But the bandwidth is limited to 500kHz due to the ft245 USB data transfer limitation of 1MB/s. I want to increase the bandwidth to something useful like say 20MHz using high speed ADC (40MSPS, 8-bit) and FIFO buffer.
Now the problem is that how

you can try FT232 from or tusb3410 from .
Especially FT232 is the most used in these cases. Also you can find ft245 from the same manufacturer but with paralel interface. Depends on what you need.

I did some search about subject (thread). It looks as too complicated and not recommended. However, with helps of some newer special designed chips maybe not.
Using for instance USBN9603 - lot of registers, hard to make driver. Chip is available even in my place for some 8 Euros.
ft245 should be easier - but for me it's not clear: can it be u

We have used products in small projects. ft245 was the type, if I remember right. You can download free drivers and it is easy to communicate to from any MCU/MPU or FPGA/CPLD. These chips also have a parallel interface, if you are not married to the idea of using 232.

The FTDI produces several IC's. FT2232 is dual RS232 port with direct IO lines capability. With this IC is possible to make few things, among other JTAG or SPI driver (for a nice JTAG + Rs232 see ).
On the other hand if You would like LPT ususaly the ft245 is quite enough. I havenever us

There seems to be a misunderstanding with USB ms SOF (start of frame) tic. It doesn't restrict the througput, it's rather a kind of idle signaling. The host can start a new transmission at any time and it's also required to send a new request packet following a full data packet received from the device. Thus a ft245 has no problems to achiev

you can get from the datasheets of both ft245 and PIC the power consumption ad/or current consumption, also you can connect the circuit and make some current measurements and I prefer this method.
Concerning crystals, I think the range of frequency your circuit work on isn't huge to have a stability issues with it, i used USB and PIC with 20MHz cr

my system is as follows:
Pc with c# programm <-> ft245r <-> cpld
i use the ftd2xx driver and the ft245r is in the normal fifo mode, not in bit-bang.
the cpld is just doing the handshake - whenever txe# goes low, it sets wr H and back to L, in order to fill the internal buffer of the ft245r.
so far so fine, but when my c# (...)
