The UM245R module is a USB – Parallel FIFO interface (TTL) development module for the FT245R IC device. The compact module is designed to fit a 24 pin DIP socket which provides access to all FIFO interface and control pins (TXE#, RXF#, RD#, WR) on the FT245R device. The UM245R can be configured as either USB bus-powered or self-powered and also supports 5V or 3V level interface. Voltage levels set via onboard jumpers. The UM245R supports data transfers at up to 1 MegaByte per second. The UM245R plugs into a standard 24 pin 0.6in wide DIP socket.
Single chip USB to UART synchronous serial data transfer interface
Entire USB protocol handled on the chip – No USB-specific firmware programming required
Simple interface to MCU / PLD / FPGA logic with 4-wire handshake interface
Data transfer rate to 1 Megabyte / second – D2XX Direct Drivers
Data transfer rate to 300 kilobyte / second – VCP Drivers.
FTDI’s royalty-free VCP,D2XX drivers eliminates requirement for USB driver developments.
FIFO with receive and transmit buffers for high data throughput
Integrated 1024bit internal EEPROM for storing USBVID, PID, serial num, product description strings
Device supplied pre-programmed with unique USB serial number
