FT51A Evaluation Tools - Development tools for the FT51x MCU series

Development modules for the Bridgetek FT51A MCU series

Bridgetek offer a series of tools to enable engineers to evaluate the FT51A series of embedded 8-bit micro-controllers and develop relevant applications requiring integrated USB device and hub port capabilities ideal for cascading distributed computing tasks over USB. Other IO's include UART, SPI, I2C, ADC and PWM ideal for data acquistion and control applications supported with 16kBytes internal program flash and 8kByte data RAM to store and run applications.

FT51A-EVM

The FT51A IC is ideal for data acquisition and control applications. To allow developers to try out some of these features, the FT51A-EVM module offers a complete solution with the following features:

  • Heart-Rate Monitor with filtered and amplified analogue output.
  • 2 x 20 character LCD display with RGB backlight.
  • Force sensitive resistor.
  • SPI temperature sensor.
  • Push button controls and LED indicator.
  • Interface footprints to allow for communication with FTDI's FT8xx modules and TTL-232R cables.
  • Upstream and downstream USB ports which allows for direct connection cascading.
  • Debugger interface header used for debugging and programming FT51A.
  • Onboard jumper for configuring the module to be self powered or USB powered.

UMFT51AA

The UMFT51AA development module provides full hardware feature support for the FT51A MCU. In addition to the DIL pin headers for access to IO such as UART, SPI, I2C, ADC and PWM the modules also provide type A USB plug and socket connections to allow attaching USB peripherals or cascading boards in a distributed computing solution via the FT51A USB hub port.

FTPD-1

The FTPD-1 programmer/debugger module provides the ideal bridge between the USB port of the PC and the 1-wire debug interface of the FT51A. This module facilitates linking your hardware with the Eclipse based FT51A design environment for loading code into the FT51A chip and for debugging code developed to run on the platform.

The module has a mini USB connector to interface to the PC side and a pin header interface for attaching a suitable interface cable to your FT51A board design.
