FTDI Launches Ultimate Bridging Solutions with New FT90X 32-Bit MCU

Based upon FTDI Chip's new FT32, high performance 32-bit RISC core, the FT90X series provides a plethora of connectivity options, making it the ideal choice for advanced technology bridging solutions. By executing instructions from shadow RAM, rather than flash memory, the FT90X can operate at true Zero Wait States (0WS) up to 100MHz and 310 DMIPS performance. Using the industry standard GCC compiler, together with the Eclipse IDE, allows the FT90X to utilise a wide variety of third-party and open source software.

The FT90X series has been developed for high speed, interface bridging tasks. With a parallel camera input, 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet Interface, CAN bus and USB2.0 Hi-Speed peripheral and host ports, this device offers excellent interconnect capabilities and fast data rates.
