**-X-chip series - USB while you wait
**-With an enhanced offer of X-chip series USB chips, it´s possible to immediately choose a type suitable for your application.
The family of X-Chip series USB chips we introduced to you in the article
series will connect you to USB even easier and faster!“. Gradually these USB
chips gain still more popularity thanks to a relatively very simple
implementation into a target device. It can be said, that a concept of the
X-Chip series is based on a direct conversion USB to a chosen serial interface.
i.e. to an interface used in our device (UART, I2C, SPI...), we can choose a
suitable chip supporting “our” serial interface. Naturally almost every version
is available in various packages. For development and production in smaller
quantities it is usually easier to work with packages like SSOP and similar, but
for a bigger serial production it´s often more convenient to use a QFN package
providing another space saving on a PCB. That´s why we enhance our stable stock
offer with the
FT230XQ-R chip in the QFN16 package.
For development support, you can find in our store also so called breakout
modules providing the simplest way to begin working with X-chips. A novelty in
our offer is the
UMFT234XF module with the FT234XD chip. FT234XD is
almost identical to FT230X, the difference is only in the package with a less
