Forums, Fast Firmware, and FTDI's
The forum is now turned on. Just click the Forum tab above. Having the forum should help keep the product comments from getting out of control.
Mongoose is now also available in a 16MHz version. If you want a higher sample rate, or just have more processing that you want to do, this is for you. Running at 16MHz and 3.3V is slightly over clocking, but it works fine. We've successfully got the internal sample rate up to 200Hz by switching to 16MHz and making a few other changes to the firmware. We'll be posting the code and more details on what can be done with the higher clock rate shortly.
We're also really excited to have our FTDI Pro available. It is based on the reliable FT232RL IC, and does everything you would expect from a USB to UART converter, but it also has a few other useful features. On the back is a switch for selecting 3.3V or 5V operation, as well as a switch for swapping the Tx and Rx line. Also, the unused FT232RL pins come out to a header, so if you need one of those other modem control pins or CBUS pins, you can get to them
