Voltlog #265 – FT232H USB to JTAG/I2C/SPI Interface With Python & PyFtdi

Welcome to a new voltlog, today we’re going to be talking about this little board which I designed and assembled myself, it’s a breakout module for the FTDI FT232H which is a usb to serial converter but with a nice twist. This particular chip from FTDI has the built-in Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE short) which allows you to run a variety of synchronous serial protocols like JTAG, I2C, SPI or simple bit-banging of IOs. You can imagine it can be really useful to be able to interface with a sensor over I2C or SPI straight from your computer over USB through this interface. You wouldn’t need an arduino or other controller in the middle if you plan to do some data acquisition for example.

Voltlog #100 – InTheMail

Welcome to a new voltlog, today we are taking a look at my electronics mailbag items and it’s episode number 100 so I would like to take the time to thank you guys for your support. Every view like & share I get from you motivates me to continue producing these videos.

Here are links for all the items shown in the video in their order of appearance:

Voltlog #37 – InTheMail

Hi and welcome to a new InTheMail, this time we have allot of items to look at and some of them were ordered 2 or even 3 months ago but due to the postal service madness that happens every year during holidays they arrived a bit late.

The video is split across two parts to avoid making it too long so make sure you watch both parts.
