GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The FT8U245AM provides an easy cost-effective method of transferring data to / from a peripheral and a
host P.C. at up to 8 Million bits ( 1 Megabyte ) per second. It’s simple FIFO-like design makes it easy to interface
to any CPU ( MCU ) either by mapping the device into the Memory / IO map of the CPU, using DMA or controlling
the device via IO ports.
To send data from the peripheral to the host P.C. simply write the byte wide data into the device when the
transmitter empty status bit is not active. If the ( 384 byte ) transmit buffer fills up, the device de-asserts
transmit empty in order to stop further data being written to the device until some of the FIFO data has been
transferred over USB.
When the host P.C. sends data to the peripheral over USB, the device will assert the receiver full status
bit to let the peripheral know that data is available. The peripheral then reads the data until the receiver full
status bit goes inactive, indicating no more data is available to read.
By using FTDI’s virtual COM Port drivers, the peripheral looks like a standard COM Port to the application
software. Commands to set the baud rate are ignored – the device always transfers data at it’s fastest rate
regardless of the application’s baud rate setting.
