Development Module FTDI UMFT51AA

Part NumberUMFT51AA

The UMFT51AA is a development module for FTDI’s FT51AQ, one of the devices from FTDI’s range of microcontrollers with USB interface bridging features integrated.


China PCB Prototype and Fabrication Manufacturer

Detailed Description

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

The UMFT51AA is a module which is designed to plug into a standard 0.6” wide 40 pin DIP socket.

The UMFT51AA is built with a FT51AQ; many of the features of the FT51AQ can be utilized with this module.
