The FT12 series of USB peripheral controller ICs delivers maximum flexibility, widening the choice for engineers' USB implementations.
Operating at 12Mbits/s and designed to the USB 2.0 specification, the new controllers support direct memory access (DMA) operation, whilst providing system interfaces for 8-bit parallel bus and SPI (Serial Pheripheral Interface) Slave. The FT12 series is configurable as a standard device class, and as such there is no need to add USB drivers. It was designed specifically so that engineers can quickly understand the device functionality and architecture, as well as taking advantage of application software and standard class drivers currently available and installed within the market.
Composed of three members, and inspired by the industry standard D12, the FT12 series offers unique features like battery charging detection, numerous interface options and optimised device footpints - allowing the designer to choose the best-fit chip. A serial interface engine (SIE) built into each FT12 handles the USB protocol and carries out packet recognition, checking and sequencing. Multiple USG transfer modes are supported, enabling bulk and isochronous data transfer activity, as well as supporting interrupt protocol.
The FT121 and FT122 handle all clock generation internally and require no crystal, thus freeing valuable PCB area and lowering system cost. A dedicated clock output pin with no programmable clock frequency (from 4MHz to 24MHz) is also included.

FTDI Chip develops innovative silicon solutions that enhance interaction with the latest in global technology. The major objective from the company is to ‘bridge technologies’ in order to support engineeers with highly sophisticated, feature-rich, robust and simple-to-use product platforms. These platforms enable creation of electronic designs with high performance, low peripheral component requirements, low power budgets and minimal board real estate.
FTDI Chip’s long-established, continuously expanding Universal Serial Bus (USB) product line boasts such universally recognized product brands as the ubiquitous R-Chip, X-Chip, Hi-Speed and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 series. In addition to both host and bridge chips, it includes highly-integrated system solutions with built-in microcontroller functionality. The company’s Embedded Video Engine (EVE) graphic controllers each pack display, audio and touch functionality onto a single chip. The unique, streamlined approach utilised by these ICs allow dramatic reductions in the development time and bill-of-materials costs involved in next generation Human Machine Interface (HMI) implementation. FTDI Chip also provides families of highly-differentiated, speed-optimised microcontroller units (MCUs) with augmented connectivity features, specifically designed with compatibility to its USB and Display product lines in mind. These MCUs are targeted for key applications where they can add value with their superior processing performance and high levels of operational efficiency.
FTDI Chip is a fab-less semiconductor company, partnered with the world’s leading foundries. The headquarter is located in Glasgow, UK and is supported with research and development facilities in Glasgow, Singapore and Taipei (Taiwan) plus regional sales and techical support sites in Glasgow, Taipei, Tigard (Oregon, USA) and Shanghai (China).
