Hi speed USB serial hub moduleFuture Technology Devices International Limited (FTDI) released the FT4232H USB serial/hub module designed to connect to the company’s V2DIPx modules, as well as any USB Host interface (e.g. PC). This product expands the number of interfaces that can be accessed downstream from the Host. Implemented on a compact 75.04 mm x 23.37 mm PCB. The module has an FTDI FT4232H USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to UART/MPSSE chip which supports data rates of 40Mb/s and can take care of all USB signaling and protocols. This new serial/hub Module offers three external downstream USB ports - two via a dual USB connector and another via the 0.1” pitch, DIL connector pins. The FT4232H also features four serial interfaces that can be configured for either asynchronous or synchronous operation - two with the option to be independently configured via an MPSSE engine (allowing the FT4232H to function as two UART/bit-bang ports plus two MPSSE engines which can be used to emulate JTAG, SPI, I2C, bit-bang or other synchronous serial modes). The module’s GL850G USB 2.0 hub controller chip supports both individual and gang power management modes.
