Need to use FT4232H Port A in all modes I2C/SPI/JTAG/UART
« on: January 01, 2024, 03:11:36 PM »

I need to use port A of the FT4232H in all I2C/SPI/JTAG/UART modes and switch between them in software. I don't see any problem in switching between I2C/SPI/JTAG, but I don't understand how to switch it from I2C to UART. Please help!

Hi,

I realized that the only option I have is to use bitbang mode and implement the UART protocol myself. It's not a problem, I just need to send 10 bytes for every byte I actually wanted to send. However, when I use FT_SetBaudRate() to set the UART speed, the resulting speed is 5 times faster than I expected. So to get 115200 I have to call FT_SetBaudRate(115200/5). What am I doing wrong?

Hi,
If you use FT_SetBitMode to reset (zero for reset)

I believe you can switch between UART and MPSSE (I2C/SPI/JTAG) modes in software using set_bit_mode USB control request but I don't know if it's exposed in FTDI drivers.
