The FT2232 DIP module is a low cost integrated module featuring FTDI's FT2232D 3rd generation Dual USB UART/FIFO. Ideal for rapid prototyping and development of FT2232D designs, an attractive quantity discount structure also makes this module suitable for incorporation into low/medium volume finished product designs.

Despite its low cost, the FT2232 DIP module not only offers the advanced features of FTDI's 3rd generation device but has a quality 2-layer PCB design and an integral 93C56 EEPROM on board for easy OEM customisation. Integral power control and an on-board MOSFET power switch make the FT2232 DIP module ideal for USB high bus power USB bus designs as well as self powered and low powered products.

The FT2232 DIP module plugs into a standard 40-pin 0.6in wide DIP socket. It uses the FT2232D chip.

The FT2232D features:

  • Single chip USB to dual channel serial / parallel ports with a variety of configurations.
  • Entire USB protocol handled on the chip. No USB specific firmware programming required.
  • Transfer Data Rate 300 to 3 Mbaud.
  • USB to parallel FIFO transfer data rate up to 1 megabyte / second.
  • Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE) to simplify synchronous serial protocol (USB to JTAG, USB to I2C, USB to SPI) design.
  • CPU-style FIFO interface mode simplifies CPU interface design.
  • MCU host bus emulation mode configuration option.
  • Fast Opto-Isolated serial interface option.
  • FTDI‟s royalty-free Virtual Com Port (VCP) and Direct (D2XX) drivers eliminate the requirement for USB driver development in most cases.
  • Highly integrated design includes 3.3V LDO regulator for USB I/O, integrated POR function and on chip clock multiplier PLL (6MHz – 48MHz).
  • Asynchronous serial UART interface option with full hardware handshaking and modem interface signals.
  • Configurable I/O drive strength.
  • Enhanced bit-bang Mode interface option with RD# and WR# strobes.
  • Fully assisted hardware or X-On / X-Off software handshaking.
  • UART Interface supports 7/8 bit data, 1/2 stop bits, and Odd/Even/Mark/Space/No Parity.
  • Operational configuration mode and USB Description strings configurable in external EEPROM over the USB interface.
  • Low operating and USB suspend current.
  • Supports bus powered, self powered and high-power bus powered USB configurations.
  • UHCI/OHCI/EHCI host controller compatible.
  • USB 2.0 Full Speed (12Mbits/Second) compatible.
  • Extended -40°C to 85°C industrial operating temperature range.
  • +4.35V to +5.25V single supply operating voltage range.
  • Dedicated Windows DLLs available for USB to JTAG, USB to SPI, and USB to I2C applications.

Driver Support

The FT2232D requires USB drivers (listed below), available free from http://www.ftdichip.com, which are used to make the FT2232D appear as a virtual COM port (VCP). This then allows the user to communicate with the USB interface via a standard PC serial emulation port (for example TTY). Another FTDI USB driver, the D2XX driver, can also be used with application software to directly access the FT2232D though a DLL
