Utility to capture data/byte stream from FT232H device.
« on: November 29, 2022, 10:16:45 AM »


I hope this is the correct sub forum for this post.

I plan to use a FT232H device with an FPGA as source of data as described in this application note. See figure 2.1

I want to stream data from the FPGA to a windows PC and capture it to a file. The data stream will be quite fast ~ 140 kilobytes per second.

My question.
Does FTDI provide a utility that capture to file a data (byte stream) coming in on USB? I did look on this page but could not really find something. https://ftdichip.com/utilities/
Or is there a third party free or paid for utility that someone can prescribe?

I would like to post process the captured stream of data after recording it for say 10 or 20 seconds.

Thanks for your help

You can have a look at Establishing Synchronous 245 FIFO Communications using a Morph-IC-II. This gives an example utility you can try, along with some sample code. The sample code can be found here: https://ftdichip.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Synchronous%20245%20Morph-IC-II%20Application.zip.
