Using this "CJMCU FT232H USB to JTAG UART FIFO SPI I2C" dev board

(1/1)

cdev:
I recently picked up this cute purple "CJMCU FT232H USB to JTAG UART FIFO SPI I2C High Speed Multifunction FT232H Serial Port Module" from aliexpress, which looks interesting and I am just starting out with it. In addition to high speed USB-to UART  it can also speak i2c, SPI and there seems to also be a slightly cheaper version of it that I can ses as also being useful. For example it offers the possibility of making USB more useful for GPS timing.

Anyway I am putting here the links that Ive have found on the board and I'd like to get a thread going so I can learn how to best use it.

I plan to use it as a means of testing misc. embedded i2c and SPI compatible components and speaking to small boards. An earlier thread here seems to have had some info on it from @IanM

I don't want to destroy it by making some stupid mistake.
I like how it has its own regulated power to run a small external device with.


Here is a starting point.

https://ftdichip.com/products/ft232hq/  (the FT232-HQ datasheet)

Github has a design for an add on board for it. There is also a collection of other links on the FT232H and this board for it. (which I will copy and paste below)

SiliconWizard:
I have used a few FT232H breakout boards, and the best one IMO is the Adafruit one. The new one has a USB-C connector too, which is handy.
