Sturdy, light-weight and dependable, these could be leveraged for embedded system improvement, check instrumentation and industrial purposes

Connective Peripherals is now supplying the worldwide market with a broad portfolio of converter cabling options fitted with USB Sort-C terminals. These new cables from the FTDI-approved module/cabling subcontractor will likely be of appreciable worth to engineers to facilitate the interconnection of recent electronics {hardware} with legacy tools and peripherals. Masking USB-to-RS232, USB-to-TTL and USB-to-MPSSE information interfacing, they are often equipped in both Full-Pace or Excessive-Pace variations. 

These cables characteristic light-weight, however strong and dependable, development and can be found in a wide range of lengths together with 0.1m, 0.5m, 1.0m and 1.8m (depending on the actual mannequin specified). 

Key makes use of for these FCC and CE compliant cables are with embedded system improvement and analysis actions – permitting the useful parameters of prevalent FTDI ICs to be assessed. The array of options obtainable are:

  • The USBC-FS-UART-5V-3.3V-1800-PH incorporates the FT234XD USB-to-UART bridging IC. This cable gives 3.3V TTL degree UART indicators and a further 5V output to energy exterior circuits. It options 1.8m of cabling with a 6-way single-in-line 0.1-inch pitch connector.
  • Primarily based on the FT232R interface IC, the USBC-FS-UART-5V-5V-1800-WE cable helps 5V TTL degree UART indicators and has a further 5V output to energy exterior circuits. The 1.8m cable has naked wire endings. 
  • USBC-FS-RS232-0V-1800-WE cables characteristic the FT230X USB-to-Serial bridge ICs, together with built-in RS232 degree shifters. 1.8m in size, they’ve wire ended terminations.
  • Every USBC-FS-RS232-100-DB9 utilises a classy FT231XS X-Chip collection USB-to-Serial IC, in addition to an FT3243S RS232 transceiver system to supply RS232 ranges on the serial interface. These 10cm cables all include a DB9 connector.
  • Utilizing FTDI’s in style Excessive-Pace USB FT232H interface IC, the USBC-HS-UART-3.3V-3.3V-1800-SPR and USBC-HS-UART-5V-3.3V-1800-SPR can present USB-to-UART interfacing at excessive information charges. They use 3.3V UART ranges and have a 3.3V or 5V energy output (relying on the mannequin). The 1.8m cables join by way of ten single-pole receptacles.
  • The USBC-HS-MPSSE-3.3V-3.3V-500-SPR and USBC-HS-MPSSE-5V-3.3V-500-SPR cables use the FT232H IC to interface Hello-Pace USB to JTAG, SPI and I2C interfaces. They supply 3.3V indicators and a 3.3V or 5V energy output (relying on the mannequin). The 0.5m cable is terminated in ten single-pole receptacles.

Among the many different potential areas the place these cables could also be employed are check instrumentation, debug equipment, industrial drives and controls, workplace tools, point-of-sale models, barcode scanners, and many others. A full suite of drivers (for MAC, Home windows, Linux, and many others.) is out there to help them.
