X-chip series – USB while you wait

With an enhanced offer of X-chip series USB chips, it´s possible to immediately choose a type suitable for your application.
The family of X-Chip series USB chips we introduced to you in the article „New X-chip series will connect you to USB even easier and faster!“. Gradually these USB chips gain still more popularity thanks to a relatively very simple implementation into a target device. It can be said, that a concept of the X-Chip series is based on a direct conversion USB to a chosen serial interface. i.e. to an interface used in our device (UART, I2C, SPI…), we can choose a suitable chip supporting “our” serial interface. Naturally almost every version is available in various packages. For development and production in smaller quantities it is usually easier to work with packages like SSOP and similar, but for a bigger serial production it´s often more convenient to use a QFN package providing another space saving on a PCB. That´s why we enhance our stable stock offer with the FT230XQ-Rchip in the QFN16 package.

For development support, you can find in our store also so called breakout modules providing the simplest way to begin working with X-chips. A novelty in our offer is the UMFT234XF module with the FT234XD chip. FT234XD is almost identical to FT230X, the difference is only in the package with a less pins count.
