in my app, I would like to recognize the FTDI chip type (FT232H vs FT245R). Can this be done by checking FT_DEVICE_LIST_INFO_NODE type? I didn't find any documentation to this struct member. I have just recognized that FT232H has set its value to 0x08 and FT245R to 0x05. Is this general rule? Is there any documentation of type codes?

I know that the type could be also recognized from eeprom product id. But this can be reflashed to any value (as it happened to me once).
