FTDI Chip is pleased to announce the launch of its first dedicated USB HID class device, the FT260. Leveraging the advantages of using a standard USB HID class driver which will be already installed in most OS (our other devices are Vendor Class), this device provides an ideal, fast to implement bridge between USB and either UART or I2C peripherals. The small 28 pin QFN package provides the perfect bridge to your sensor or human interface peripheral application. The I2C mode of operation will also support the HID over I2C protocol defined by Microsoft with Windows 8.
The device is available now in 28 pin QFN package, with further packages and development modules to follow.
