The FTDI Driver API for Serial by Ovak Technologies provides high-level building blocks to communicate with the FTDI Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE) based on the D2XX driver. The API enables users to write applications and communicate with the FTDI Chip’s I2C/SPI devices without needing to understand the low-level D2XX driver and its command sets.

The MPSSE provides a flexible means of interfacing synchronous serial devices to a USB port. By being “Multi-Protocol,” the MPSSE allows communication with many different types of synchronous interfaces such as Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) and Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C). The API offers SPI and I2C master mode operations and supports SPI modes 0 and 2 (partially supports modes 1 and 3). Clock speeds of up to 30 MHz generate data transfer speeds of more than 1 MB/s.

With this easy-to-use API featuring high-level building blocks, you can implement data formatting and clock synchronization configuration in a variety of ways to meet almost any requirement. If you need to rapidly integrate with an existing system or you are prototyping a platform for a USB interface on a new system, this API is for you.
