    Manufacturer: FTDI

    This product has been superceded by FTDI's FT245BL (RoHS)


    FT245BM, FT245BL & FT245BQ - USB FIFO ICs
    The FT245BM is the 2nd generation of FTDI's popular USB FIFO device and the FT245BL is a lead free version of it. The FT245BQ provides the same functionality as the FT245BM and FT245BL in a QFN-32 lead free package.

    This device not only adds extra functionality to its predecessor (FT8U245AM) and reduces external component count, but also maintains a high degree of pin compatibility with the original making it easy to upgrade or cost reduce existing designs as well as increasing the potential for using this device in new application areas.

    Product Information

    Key Hardware Features
    • Single Chip USB <=> parallel FIFO bi-directional data transfer
    • Data transfer rate of up to 1M Byte/second (D2XX drivers)
    • Data transfer rate of up to 300K Byte/second (VCP drivers)
    • Simple to interface to MCU/PLD/FPGA logic with a 4-wire handshaking interface
    • Entire USB protocol handled on-chip: no USB-specific firmware programming required
    • FTDI's royalty-free VCP and D2XX drivers eliminate the requirement for USB driver development in most cases
    • 384 Byte FIFO Tx buffer/128 Byte FIFO Rx buffer for high data throughput
    • New send immediate support via SI pin for optimized data throughput
    • Support for USB suspend/resume through PWREN# and WAKEUP pins
    • Support for high power USB bus powered devices through PWREN# pin
    • Adjustable Rx buffer timeout
