The thingSoC GROVEY_UART Base board incorporates a Cypress CY7C65215 Dual Channel USB Bridge, that supports UART, I2C, SPI, and JTAG interfaces in a thingSoC format.
The thingSoC GROVEY_UART Base board has two USB bridge channels, which can be programmed to be either UART, I2C, SPI, JTAG, or Capacitance Sensing (buttons/sliders) Human Input devices.
USB Bridge One (Port 1) and USB Bridge Two (Port 2) are both connected to Grove System compatible connectors, and USB Bridge One (Port 1) is also connected to the thingSoC standard UART channel.
Port1 can be used to program a target microprocessor, at the same time Port2 is used for another purpose (i.e. debug channel, USB to RS-485 bridge, etc).
It's like having two (2) FTDI adapters in One!
Use it as a Programming Dongle
Use it as a Protocol Adapter
