FTDI News / New Power Delivery High Speed USB Devices
« on: May 24, 2021, 10:30:56 AM »
FTDI are please to announce the New USB High Speed Power Delivery Series. We have added the Power Delivery (PD) functionality to our existing successful High Speed series.

The Power Delivery series has up to two Type-C/PD ports, with PD1 port supporting both power sink and source roles (Initial Sink), and PD2 port only supporting a power sink port role. Both PD ports support 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V and 20V PDO profiles, and these profiles are configurable through the external EEPROM at power-up or reset. PD1 port shares the same Type-C connector with USB data, and PD2 port is power port only without USB data.

In addition to the higher data rates these devices offer, (up to 40Mbytes/s) when compared to full speed solutions, the Hi-speed series also offers a
range of multi-channel interfacing. The benefit of a multi-channel bridge is that the system BOM is reduced by removing the need for a USB hub chip.
Additionally, each channel of the device appears to the host PC as a separate device enabling each channel to be independently configured for different modes, e.g. UART, MPSSE or FIFO and with different parameters such as 4 UARTS all operating with different baud rates.

For more information on each device, please follow these links:


Please post any questions, or indeed your feedback to this new series.

best regards

New Application Note Available - FT-X MTP Programming Guidelines UNDER NDA

FTDI have created a new application note, this document describes how a user application can be designed to effectively utilize MTP life cycle. This document is targeted for those applications which use a small part of the available MTP memory space

The MTP can be programmed multiple times but it has the following reliability characteristics. Hence it is important to design the user application in an optimized and effective way which reduces the number of write cycles as much as possible. And this document describes how to design an application such that more than 2000 write cycles is even possible (up to 10000).

The document is available under NDA, please contact support1@ftdichip for further information.

best regards
