Hi All, I need to provide the USB connectivity for USB not capable microcontroller. The FTDI chips are the simplest and cheap solution. However the VCP drivers do not provide sufficient throughput. The D2XX do not, but they are not open source, so are usable only for a few platforms, for which FTDI has provided binaries of their library. Is there any Open Source equivalent of the D2XX driv...

The VNC1L from FTDI looks like a very attractive IC which allows interfacing to USB flash drives with minimum hassle. However I have heard the rumors that it is very slow: the realistic data transfer rate is about 300kbytes/sec at the best. I didn't find any official performance data in the datasheets or FAQ. Can you please comment on your experience with this IC and its performance...

I found a similar problem in an earlier thread, but not really a solution... I am trying to install the FTDI FT232BM VCP driver on a Windows 98 system. The system won't "pick up" the driver. It recognizes the USB device (unknown) when I plug it in. It then insists on automatically attaching its own USB driver. I can tell it to "update driver" and point it to the directory where th...

Hi, I've read several posts from different people in here stating they have used the FTDI parts successfully. I am considering the FT232R and my application needs very low latency (yes, USB and low-latency is an oxymoron).

I am having problems reading a FTDI 245 USB parallel chip into a PC. In the PC, I am using GetQueueStatus(), which returns the number of bytes in the rx queue, follwed by a read() which reads the bytes into a buffer. All within a self contained thread. I am using Microsoft C V7. The throughput rate is about 500Kbps, about half the maximum realisable. The problem is that every few seconds...
