    Hi,
    I wanted to know which is a better chip.
    FUTURE TECH'S FT245BM USB FIFO ( USB - Parallel ) I.C.
    OR
    PHILLIPS'S PDIUSBD12 USB TO FIFO(PARALLEL) I.C.
    If anyone has used these chips in any usb converter project or has
    come across it anywhere kindly reply.

    Regards,
    Madhukar

    and also consider Nationals USBN 9603/4, which seem to be fairly
    available, cheap, and simple to interface.

    From what I know, the FTDI chip is much more expensive than
    the Philips and National types.

    What do you want to do with it?

    In very general terms, the FT device is simpler and better
    suited for hardware interfacing. The Philips device is tailored
    for microcontroller systems, including DMA support.

    Kind regards,

    BTW, I don't speak for Philips, the above is my personal optinion.
    I have personally used the FT chip, but not the Philips one.

    Looks like a nice chip, but are PC-side drivers available?
    From what I see at www.digikey.com the prices are about the same. But
    the National is available as DIP, which might be a big plus for
    hobbyists.
