questionn about papilio pro hardware


Recommended Posts

hello everyone,

i am building my own papilio pro. ive got 10 boards on the way and enough parts to populate two. my question is thiis:

there is an eeprom connected to the ftdi chip. what information needs to be placed on this eeprom, and will i have to use an external programmer before soldering on the board, or can i use the ftdi to program the eeprom? thanks in advance! :)

Hey Andy,


Everything will still work even if you do not solder on the EEPROM chip. :) The only bad thing you can do is to solder it on the wrong way, which I've seen before, which will cause the FTDI chip to not respond.


Blank or not populated at all is fine, the Papilio Pro does not use the eeprom chip for default usage.
