What is FTDI Chip and Cable? Where are they Used?

FTDI chip is one of the most popular USB to TTL converter IC. They are used to interface devices like Arduino with the laptop through a USB cable. In simple words, an FTDI chip makes it super easy to convert a USB signal to the UART signal understood by the microcontrollers.



An FTDI, or Future Technology Devices International, chip is an integrated circuit that enables USB communication between devices. Originally designed for use in PC peripherals such as printers and scanners, FTDI chips are now commonly found in a wide range of products, from consumer electronics to industrial applications.
