New Software Example: FT800 Sensor Reading and Display Application

This example demonstrates how the VM800P ‘Plus’ module may be used to read sensor data via the Arduino controller I2C port and display the data both in terms of digital numbers and in a graphical form with scaling applied to the graph. This particular demonstration is measuring voltage and current supplied to a USB peripheral, but the concepts demonstrated could easily be applied to other sensor applications such as temperature, heart rate, or fluid/gas flow rates.

An application note describing the demonstration and techniques used are available in AN_356: http://www.ftdichip.com/Support/Documents/AppNotes/AN_356%20FT800%20Interfacing%20I2C%20Sensor%20to%20VM800P.pdf
