UM232H - USB Hi-Speed FT232H Evaluation Module

The UM232H is a USB-to-serial/FIFO development module in the FTDI product range which utilises the FT232H USB Hi-Speed (480Mb/s) single-port bridge chip to handle the USB signaling and protocols.

The UM232H is a USB-to-serial/FIFO development module in the FTDI product range which utilises the FT232H USB Hi-Speed (480Mb/s) single-port bridge chip to handle the USB signaling and protocols. The UM232H is ideal for development purposes to quickly prove functionality of adding USB to a target design.The module is designed to plug into a standard 0.6" wide 28 pin DIP socket and the USB connection to a host system is via a mini-B USB connector.

The FT232H is a single channel USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480Mb/s) to Serial/FIFO IC. It can be configured in a variety of serial or parallel interfaces, such as UART, FIFO or FTDI's MPSSE mode which can configure either of the following interfaces: JTAG, SPI and I2C. For MPSSE mode, there are also 14 bit-bang lines available along with the four interface lines. In addition to these, the FT232H supports a CPU-Style FIFO mode and a fast serial interface mode. It also introduces a half-duplex FT1248 interface that provides a flexible data communication and high performance interface between the FT232H device and external logic.

Key Features:

  • Based on the Single chip USB Hi-Speed FT232H device.
  • USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480Mbits/Second) and Full Speed (12Mbits/Second) compatible
  • Entire USB protocol handled on the chip -No USB-specific firmware programming required.
  • Small USB Type B connector common on many commercial devices
  • USB bus or self powered options.
  • FTDI's royalty-free VCP and D2XX drivers eliminate the requirement for USB driver development in most cases.
  • -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range
  • Rapid integration into existing systems
