The VDIP1 module is an MCU to USB Host Controller development module for the VNC1L device. VDIP1 is supplied on a PCB designed to fit a 24-pin DIP socket and provides access to all UART, SPI and FIFO interface pins of the VNC1L device.
Ideal for rapid prototyping and development of VNC1L designs, an attractive quantity discount structure also makes this module suitable for incorporation into low/medium volume finished product designs.
The VNC1L USB Host Controller ICs not only handle the USB Host Interface, and data transfer functions but owing to the inbuilt 8/32-bit MCU and embedded Flash memory, VNC1L encapsulates the USB device classes as well. When interfacing to mass storage devices such as USB Flash drives, VNC1L also transparently handles the FAT file structure communicating via UART, SPI or parallel FIFO interfaces via a simple to implement command set. The VNC1L device features two USB Ports which can be individually configured by firmware as Host or Slave ports.
VNC1L brings cost effective USB Host capability to products that previously did not have the hardware resources available. We anticipate that these devices will be especially popular for adding USB Flash drive connectivity to a wide range of consumer and industrial products. As VNC1L comes complete with FTDI's in-house developed firmware, there are no USB software stacks to license, indeed, no knowledge of USB is required to use these devices.
Key VDIP1 features include :
- Jumper selectable UART, SPI or FIFO MCU Interfaces
- Uses FTDI's VNC1L device
- USB "A" type socket to interface with USB peripherals
- 2nd USB Interface available via module pins if required
- Single 5V supply input
- Auxiliary 3.3V/150mA power output to power external logic
- Power Good and Traffic Indicator LEDs
- Reset# and Prog# signals allow device programming via the UART interface if required.
- VDIP1 module, assembled and tested
