Microchip MCP2210 USB-to-SPI Protocol Converter

Microchip MCP2210 USB-to-SPI Protocol Converter and Eval Kit

Microchip MCP2210 USB-to-SPI Protocol Converter is the simplest, smallest, and most cost-effective device for adding USB-certified connectivity to SPI-based systems. This space-constrained Microchip USB-to-SPI protocol converter features nine flexible GPIO pins that can be configured as standard digital I/O pins or in alternate configurations. The MCP2210 converter utilizes the USB HID class supported by Windows®, Linux, and Mac OS® operating systems. This Microchip converter is a 100% plug-and-play solution, making it even simpler to add USB to existing designs for data collection, transfer, and analysis as well as many other USB functions.

Microchip MCP2210 Evaluation Kit is a development and evaluation platform for the MCP2210 device. The MCP2210 Motherboard is designed to work together with the MCP2210 Breakout Board. The motherboard provides the test points needed for measurements and it also contains the following SPI slave chips: MCP23S08 - 8 bit I/O expander; MCP3204 - 4 channel, 12-bit ADC; 25LC02 - 2kB EEPROM; TC77 - temperature sensor. All the mentioned chips are SPI slaves controlled by the MCP2210. The MCP2210 Eval Board Demo software can be used to demonstrate the MCP2210 as a USB-to-SPI (Master) device and allow I/O control. In addition, the MCP2210 Utility software allows custom device configuration.
