Image of FTDI's USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to MPSSE SPI ModuleFTDI's USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to MPSSE SPI module is a small electronic circuit board utilizing the FT232H. This device handles all the USB signaling and protocols. The module provides a fast, simple way to connect devices with 3.3 volt digital interface to USB. The integrated FT232H device incorporates a command processor called the Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE). The purpose of the MPSSE command processor is to communicate with devices which use synchronous protocols (such as JTAG, SPI, or I2C) in an efficient manner. The module is terminated by ten female pin headers which can be interfaced to a male header. Pin signals are compliant with CMOS logic at 3.3 volts. The VA800A-SPI MPSSE module is configured for SPI only. The 10-pin connector fits directly on the EVE FT800 graphic display modules (VM800B and VM800C). The module is powered from a USB host port and is USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible.
