USB specialist Future Technology Devices International (FTDI)  has signed a distribution deal with Yosun Industrial. Yosun will represent FTDI in Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.
FTDI says this new distribution partnership will give engineering and procurement staff in these countries better access to the company’s chips, cables, development modules and supporting software, for quick and cost effective implementation of USB-enabled embedded systems.
Headquartered in Taipei, Yosun has over 700 employees and a network of sales offices across the entire Asian continent. With immediate effect, it will market the full portfolio of FTDI products. This includes USB converter ICs and cables that allow connection to legacy RS232, RS422, RS485 and CAN-based serial interfaces, the Vinculum and Vinculum-II USB 2.0 Host/Device controller ICs with on-chip processing functionality, the Morph-IC-II module for USB reconfiguration of FPGA-based system designs and the Arduino-inspired Vinco development platform.
