FTDI Morph-IC-II FPGA Development Module

Integrates Hi-Speed USB Capability with an FPGA

The FTDI Morph-IC-II FPGA Module speeds the creation of FPGA-based applications and simplifies the integration of hi-speed 480Mbit/s USB communication in advanced logic circuit designs. The FTDI Morph-IC-II platform combines an Altera Cyclone®-II FPGA with high-performance USB 2.0 capabilities that facilitate high-speed communications with ultra-fast, sub-100ms FPGA programming/re-programming. This makes the FTDI Morph-IC-II ideal for applications that require users to reconfigure hardware functionality on the fly by downloading new software over USB, morphing the hardware. As well as enhancing application flexibility, hardware reconfiguration via USB can also reduce cost. The Morph-IC-II features up to 80 GPIO lines ensuring optimum flexibility for connecting the FPGA to external circuits and interfaces.
