Detailed Description

FT51A  is  a  MCU  which  includes  the following features: USB client and USB hub  interfaces, 8051 core, 8-bit ADC, UART, SPI, I2C, 245 FIFO and PWM.

The  FT51A-EVM demonstrates the FT51A series I2C and SPI  interfaces,  the ADC  input, PWM  and GPIO features. It contains a 28 pin header which allows easy access  to all  the  FT51AQ’s  IO pins, as well as the debug  and  reset  pins.  This  module  also  comes preloaded with the FT51A-EVM firmware that allows users to use all the features of the module without developing firmware.

The FT51A-EVM is fitted with a FT51AQ; many of the features of the FT51A series can be utilized with this module.  For a  full  list of  the  FT51A series features please see the FT51A datasheet.
