FTDI VNC2 Debug Module

FTDI VNC2 Debug Module

FTDI VNC2 Debug Module is designed to provide connectivity between the Vinculum-II IDE development software and the debug interface pin on the FTDI Vinculum-II (VNC2) USB host controller device. This module consists of a miniature board with a USB miniB connector, which provides USB connectivity to Vinculum-II IDE development tools running on a PC. The VNC2 debug module can be used to program and debug firmware running on the VNC2 device. The FTDI VNC2 Debug Module connects to the VNC2 device via a 6-way, 2mm pitch, keyed, female connector. The V2DIPx-x, VNC2 based development modules are equipped with a compatible male connector to host the VNC2 debug module. Designers intending to use the module with their own VNC2 based hardware are required to have a similar compatible male connector on their hardware.

  • One USB miniB type socket to connect with a PC
  • Onboard FTDI FT232R which provides conversion from USB to serial
    interface for VNC2 debug port
  • Low USB bandwidth consumption
  • USB 2.0 Full Speed compatible
  • UHCI/OHCI/EHCI host controller compatible
  • 5V power output to V2DIP-x module (if needed)
  • USB powered
  • Programming and debugging for VNC2 IC designs
  • Power and traffic indicator LEDs
  • 6 way, keyed connector to support V2DIPx-x development modules
  • Pb-free, RoHS compliant
  • Operating temperature range: -40⁰C to +85⁰C
  • Enable firmware programming of VNC2 devices on V2DIPx-x development modules and custom VNC2 based hardware
  • Debug firmware code running on a VNC2 device
