FTDI Vinculum-II Embedded Dual USB Host Controller

The FTDI Vinculum-II (VNC2) Embedded Dual USB Host Controller IC represents the second generation of FTDI USB Host devices. The Vinculum-II CPU is dramatically upgraded from the previous VNC1L device, greatly increasing the processing power. This FTDI Embedded Dual USB Host Controller features a powerful 16-bit MCU core with 256KB Flash and 16KB RAM memory. The Vinculum-II is a complete USB system solution that supports a range of flexible interfaces, including UART, SPI, FIFO, and PWM. The complete USB protocol data processing is handled entirely by hardware resources within the device, freeing up processing resources for user developed applications. This fully programmable FTDI Embedded Dual Host Controller is supported with the new Vinculum Software Tool Suite, which provides an easy to use C based development environment to enable user firmware development.

FTDI Vinculum-II Controller Evaluation and Development Tools

FTDI Vinculum-II (VNC2) evaluation and development modules and boards are a range of tools for use with the Vinculum-II USB Host / Slave Controller IC. This includes the The Vinculo development platform that allows designers to integrate powerful USB 2.0 interfacing by incorporating the VNC2 IC with the capability of interfacing to the growing range of I/O application boards (shields) developed by the Arduino open-source community.The V2-EVAL is a complete evaluation and prototyping platform for the VNC2. The VNC2 is accessed via an onboard daughterboard module enabling support for 32, 48, and 64-pin QFN package types. The FTDI V2DIP1 and V2DIP2 are VNC2 based development modules with a single USB connector (V2DIP1) or two USB connectors (V2DIP2). The VNC2 Debug 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. Now available is the Vinco Ethernet RTC MP3 Shield (VSHLD-EMR) is designed to connect directly to the FTDI Vinco development PCB (V2-EVAL).
