Ft201X & ftd2xx.dll
« on: February 19, 2019, 08:27:54 AM »

Hi folks,

I’m using the FT201X and ftd2xx.dll with vb .net for my project. I’ve managed to get most needed functions to work neatly. That is interfacing my windows application with an MCU over I2C. But I’m encountering difficulties with two functions. These are ‘FT_GetStatus’ and ‘FT_GetQueueStatus’. These functions return 0 even when TXE# confirms the buffer is full. What I would like to know is if this is a known issue for the FT201 (assuming I’ve done everything correctly) or if this is the result of something else. I need atleast one of these functions to read the buffers efficiently. Thanks in advance.

You could try changing the latency timer (FT_SetLatencyTimer) to 1 or enabling flow control in your application program (FT_SetFlowControl). Have a look at the D2XX Programmer Guide for further details:
