UMFT230XB - Development breakout module for the FT230X IC

The UMFT230XB Breakout Module provides the most cost-effective and simplest development hardware for the FT230X USB to basic UART interface IC.

The UMFT230XB is a breakout board that converts USB2.0 Full-Speed to basic UART, for evaluation and development using the FT230X IC. These modules do not have a USB connector - instead the modules plug directly into the USB host connector and the pads of the PCB makes electrical contact with the electrical contacts of the USB connector.

All serial interfaces operate at +3.3V voltage levels, however all I/Os are 5V tolerant.

  • UMFT230XB bridges from USB to a UART interface.
  • 3.3V power out limited to 50mA and 5V with as safety fuse
  • Upgrading Legacy Peripherals to USB
  • Utilising USB to add system modularity
  • Incorporate USB interface to enable PC transfers for development system communication
  • Motherboard and system monitoring through USB
  • USB dongle implementations for Software/ Hardware Encryption and Wireless Modules
  • Interfacing MCU/PLD/FPGA based designs to add USB connectivity
  • USB Instrumentation
  • USB Industrial Control
  • USB Digital Camera Interface
  • Capable of detecting dedicated USB charger ports for charging batteries with high current
