One of the most important USB 3.0 improvements is new transfer type called SuperSpeed which can achieve 3.2 Gbit/s (400 MB/s) or more in practice. Data acquisition systems, FPGA and MCU based development boards, high resolution video cameras and displays now can use FT600/601 and take advantages of USB3.0.To format incoming data into FIFO bus compatible protocol a FPGA can be used.

To speed-up development we offers FTDI UMFT600A and UMFT601A high speed mezzanine card (HSMC interface) with 16-bit and 32-bit wide FIFO. The HSMC interface is compatible with the most of Altera FPGA reference design boards like Terasic P0150; Cyclone V GX Starter Kit. FTDI application note AN377 provides step-by-step instruction how to use UMFT600A, UMFT601A with this starter kit.

The first samples of FT600Q-T, FT601Q-T, UMFT600A and UMFT601A can be found in our stock. For more information please visit our FTDI info pages. For summary of FTDI USB solution please see USB brochure.
