FTDI Android platform

FTDI now supports the Android open accessories initiative, allowing engineers to access system designs that are compatible with tablets and smartphones using Android.

Support is provided for both the Vinculum II dual USB host/device controller IC and the Vinco development board products.

This move will benefit engineers using the company’s Arduino-inspired Vinco platform to create USB 2.0 connected embedded systems.

Vinco’s host controller is already integrated into the board itself, meaning that design engineers do not need to budget for an extra USB host controller card/IC to implement Android open accessories.

The Vinco is a dual-channel USB host/device controller that is targeted at rapid development and prototyping of USB host/device interfaces. It is a superset of the Arduino Duemilanove/Uno with two extra rows of headers providing an extra 10 pins and can be programmed using a subset of standard ANSI ‘C’ using the FTDI free software.

Vinco features an 8-channel, 10-bit ADC, PWM interface and supports connectivity to a wide range of application boards developed by the Arduino open-source community. These include ethernet, motor control, LCD and many other applications.
