Interfacing 7 Segment LED Display with FT232

lt543 7 segment LED Display  interfaced with FT232 usb to serial converter using D2XX library

In this tutorial we will interface a 7 Segment LED display serially using FT232 USB to serial converter chip and D2XX library from FTDI.D2XX is a library released by FTDI international,makers of FT232 and other FT series chip to access the advanced functions of the FT232 chip.The control program is written in standard C using D2XX library and is compiled using opensource GCC compiler on a windows 7 machine.Please note that this tutorial is specific to FT232 chip and will not work with USB to serial converter chips manufactured by other companies( like TUSB3410 from TI).

In this article we will learn to use the D2XX library from FTDI to extend the functionalities of FT232 USB to Serial Converter chip.Most of the people in the embedded field are familiar about the easy to use USB to Serial converter chip FT232 which can easly add a USB Serial port to any microcontroller with an UART.With a  little bit of code and a library (D2XX) from FTDI (makers of FT232) you can easily convert the humble chip into a USB to Parallel converter (8 and 4 bit),USB to RS485 Converter and off course USB to Serial Converter.

Even though this article is written as a companion guide to the USB2SERIAL Converter sold at this website, you can use any FT232 based USB to serial converter board to test the examples present in this article. The only requirement for your hardware module is that you should be able to identify the required pins of FT232 from your board and use it.
