FT51A-EVM Evaluation Module, FTDI Chip

The FTDI Chip FT51A-EVM is a development module for their range of 8-bit microcontrollers with integrated USB interface bridging. The FT51A MCU includes: USB client and USB hub interfaces, 8051 core, 8-bit ADC, UART, SPI, I2C, 245 FIFO and PWM.

The FT51A-EVM demonstrates the I2C and SPI interfaces, the ADC input, PWM and GPIO features. It has 28-pin header to enable you to access to all the FT51AQ I/O pins, together with the debug and reset pins. It also comes preloaded with the FT51A-EVM firmware to enable you to use all the features of the module without developing firmware.

The FT51A-EVM is fitted with an FT51AQ and full details of this microcontroller can be found under RS product code 917-0704.

In addition to the MCU features, the FT51A-EVM also has the following features:

LCD display with 20 x 2 characters, I2C interface and RGB backlight.
Heart-Rate Monitor with filtered and amplified analogue output.
Force sensitive resistor.
SPI Temperature Sensor.
Push buttons controls and LED indicator.
Interface footprints to allow for communication with the FTDI FT8xx modules and TTL-232R cables for example, RS 429-307).
Upstream and downstream USB ports which allow for direct connection cascading.
Debugger interface header used for debugging and programming the FT51AQ. Designed for use with the FTDI Chip Programmer and Debug Module FTPD-1 (RS 917-0726).
On-board jumper for configuring the module to be in self-powered or USB powered.
