USB-to-UART/I2C/SMBus/SPI Protocol Converters from Microchip

New Microchips ICs providing USB connectivity tо systems having UART, I2C or SPI communication interfaces!

 

 

Features such as integrated USB termination resistors, internal oscillator, ADCs, DACs and GPIO offer system designers needed flexibility and help minimize external component count. These products are well suited for small embedded Linux®/Android systems, industrial control and medical systems. As well as consumer applications including digital cameras, set-top boxes, MP3 players, multi-meters and data loggers.

MCP2200 – USB-to-UART Protocol Converter

The MCP2200 is a USB-to-UART serial converter which enables USB connectivity in applications that have a UART interface. The device reduces external components by integrating the USB termination resistors. The MCP2200 also has 256 bytes of integrated user EEPROM. The MCP2200 has eight general purpose input/output pins. Four of the pins have alternate functions to indicate USB and communication status.

 

MCP2210 – USB-to-SPI Protocol Converter with GPIO (Master Mode)

The MCP2210 device is a USB-to-SPI Master converter which enables USB connectivityin applications that have an SPI interface. The device reduces external components by integrating the USB termination resistors. The MCP2210 also has 256 bytes of integrated user EEPROM. The MCP2210 has nine general purpose input/output pins. Seven pins have alternate functions to indicate USB and communication status.

 

MCP2221 – USB-to-UART/I2C Serial Converter

The MCP2221 is a USB-to-UART/I2C serial converter which enables USB connectivity in applications that have a UART and I2C interfaces. The device reduces external components by integrating the USB termination resistors and the oscillator needed for USB operation. The MCP2221 also has four GP pins providing miscellaneous functionalities (GPIO, USBCFG, SSPND, Clock Output, ADC, DAC, interrupt detector).
