Hi All,

This message is about improving the data stream from radioberry to RPI and lower the utilization of  the RPI CPU: also the resources required within the FPGA are really limited in comparison to a full ethernet stack!

 Iam enthousiastic ! 

Playing with a module UM232H which uses a FT232 chip . (only one channel)

Running a program on a W10 PC

(will do the same on a RPI)

Type = 0x8
ID = 0x4036014
Description = UM232H

Device with serial number found

Read 1GB from the FTDI in 26.3 seconds.
Average read speed: 326.3 Mbps.

(Running with 254 protocol)

Using only the module not yet connected to the FPGA; pretty amazing results!

I have been reading a little about these FTDI devices today; always thinking that these devices are replacement for serial communication for RS232 replacement... but it seems to be more capable!! Nice.

There are also FTDI chips implementing 2 or 4 channels ... making it possible to program the FPGA. 

The only thing with the current board is how to add the module (also the numbers of IO )

But there are multiple  protocols... will look into it as well and see how to make the connection!

Hi Johan,

Thank you very much for your effort to use FT232H with Radioberry.
I'm looking forward to hearing a good news in 2021.

Happy New year and 73,
