FTDI released the FT311D USB host IC for easy communication with Android devices. It features 7 GPIOs, one I2C peripheral, one UART, one SPI, and 4 PWM peripherals.

The device acts as a USB host to an Android device, while the Android’s app directly controls the peripherals on the IC. The device is configurable trough 3 CFG pins.

    If I understand how this device is supposed to function ( and I’am not entirely sure I do) then FTDI has a real winner here, they are going to sell boatloads.

    Here some questions: I have plugged a android 4.0 device (a sonny smart phone and a sonny tablet ) and that worked correctly. the smart phone recognize ft311d, and manufacturer, etc….

    then, I plugged a android 4.0 tablet (a xxx china manufacturer) and its not worked. Nothing! I really don’t know what happened. I had spent many hours trying to make it works. Does anybody know about that? Wich thing is not working properly.

    I have reading and problem should be USB hardware inside my device, does it make any sense? thanks
