FTDI Chip FT-X Chip Series Interface ICs & Modules

FTDI FT-X Chip Series Interface ICs & Modules target a wide range of interfaces, including basic and full UART. The FT-X ICs also include FIFO, I2C, and SPI, allowing engineers to easily incorporate USB connectivity into their systems. FT-X-Chip Interface ICs are USB 2.0 full-speed chips which join the USB 2.0 high-speed, H-Series of devices and popular R-Series of ICs. Besides offering an expanded, world-class feature set, these FTDI FT-X-Chip Series Interface ICs offer reduced pin counts. For the leaded, SSOP, or a leadless QFN package, pin-outs have been minimized. The package ranges from a 10-pin DFN package for the FT200XD I2C solution to 24-pins for a FIFO to USB bridge. The FT-X-Chip Series Modules help engineers integrate FTDI's FT-X-Chip Series Interface ICs into new and existing designs. Note: The FT-X series requires a minimum driver version of 2.08.23(Beta) for Windows and 2.2.17 for Mac OS X.


  • I/O levels from 1.8V to 3.3V (5V Tolerant)
  • Extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C
  • Low operating current 8mA (typical)
  • DFN package is 3.00mm x 3.00mm
  • Battery charger detection to enable higher current, faster charging
  • Extensive clocking capabilities, internal clock generation, and external clock out
  • Internal 3.3V regulator
  • Integrated crystal and Multi-Time –Programmable (MTP) memory to save board space and maximize flexibility
  • FT-X devices now have VCP driver support built into Ubuntu Linux version 11.10, kernel 3.0.0-19
