Bridging a USB to a Microcontroller, as Shown by the Analog Discovery 2

Our friend Yahya, Editor at Atadiat (the Arabic word for hardware), has put together a fine tutorial on serial engine programming. Using the MPSSE (Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine) from FTDI Chip as a bridge, you’re able to execute different types of USB to serial conversion. This article explains a little about the MPSSE, how to configure it, and then finally shows how to write a QT C++ program and run a test of it using WaveForms and the Analog Discovery 2.
