Wouldn't it be cool to drive a tiny OLED display, read a color sensor,
or even just flash some LEDs directly from your computer? Sure you can
program an Arduino or Trinket to talk to these devices and your
computer, but why can't your computer just talk to those devices and
sensors itself? Well, now your computer can talk to devices using the
Adafruit FT232H breakout board!
What can the FT232H chip do? This chip from FTDI is similar to their
USB to serial converter chips but adds a 'multi-protocol synchronous
serial engine' which allows it to speak many common protocols like
SPI, I2C, serial UART, JTAG, and more! There's even a handful of
digital GPIO pins that you can read and write to do things like flash
LEDs, read switches or buttons, and more. The FT232H breakout is like
adding a little swiss army knife for serial protocols to your
This chip is powerful and useful to have when you want to use Python
(for example) to quickly iterate and test a device that uses I2C, SPI
or plain general purpose I/O. There's no firmware to deal with, so you
don't have to deal with how to "send data to and from an Arduino which
is then sent to and from" an electronic sensor or display or part.
This breakout has an FT232H chip and an EEPROM for onboard
