Description
The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to MPSSE cable contains a small internal electronic circuit board, utilising the
FTDI FT232H, which is encapsulated into the USB connector end of the cable, this handles all the USB
signalling and protocols. The cable provides a fast, simple way to connect devices with 3.3 Volt digital
interfaces to USB. For full details of the IC, consult the FT232H datasheet, this is available from
DS_FT232H.
The integrated FT232H device incorporates a command processor called the Multi-Protocol Synchronous
Serial Engine (MPSSE). The purpose of the MPSSE command processor is to communicate with devices
which use synchronous protocols (such as JTAG, SPI or I2C) in an efficient manner. Full details are
available in the MPSSE application note - AN_108.
The cable is terminated by ten individual wires with single pole connectors which can be interfaced to a
male header. Cable signals are compliant with CMOS logic at 3.3 volts.
The FT232H is a single channel USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480Mb/s) to UART/FIFO IC. It can be configured in a
variety of industry standard serial or parallel interfaces, such as MPSSE - JTAG, SPI, I2C.
The C232HM MPSSE cable is easily configured into each interface e.g. JTAG, SPI, I2C via the application
software.
The cable is powered from a USB host port and is USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible. The cable is 0.5m long
and supports a data transfer up to 30Mbps in MPSSE mode.
The C232HM MPSSE cable requires USB device drivers, available free from http://www.ftdichip.com. The
D2XX driver is used with application software to directly access the FT232H in the cable though a DLL.
This is illustrated in the Figure 1-1
The C232HM MPSSE cable uses the FTDI’s FT232H USB to serial IC device.

Table 1.1 C232HM MPSSE Cable Descriptions and Part Numbers
Note 1: The VCC power output signal (RED wire) is 3.3V. The source of 3.3V is the onboard regulator output, which
is switched onto the power output signal.
Note 2: The VCC power output signal (RED wire) is 5.0V. The source of 5.0V is the USB VBUS input, which is
switched onto the power output signal.
FTDI supports customised end connector designs. For more information, please contact your local FTDI
sales office (see end of datasheet for contact details).
1.2 Certifications
The FTDI C232HM MPSSE cables are fully RoHS compliant. At the time of writing this datasheet the
cables were being CE and FCC tested.
1.3 USB Compliant
The FTDI C232HM MPSSE cables are fully compliant with the USB 2.0 specification and have been given
the USB-IF Test-ID (TID) 10820025.

Each C232HM MPSSE cable is controlled by the FTDI FT232H IC. This FT232H device contains an EEPROM
which contains the USB configuration descriptors for that device. When the cable is plugged into a PC or
a USB reset is performed, the PC will read these descriptors. The default values stored into the internal
