VDRIVE2 is possibly the easiest solution for adding a USB Flash Drive interface to existing products. Only four signal lines plus 5V supply and ground are required to be connected. Using the Vinculum VDAP firmware the VNC1L's I/O interface can be selected between the serial UART or SPI using the on-board jumper pins. Not only is the VDrive2 ideal for evaluation and development of VNC1L designs, but also its neat enclosure and attractive quantity discount structure makes this module suitable for incorporation into finished product designs. The VDrive2 is ideal for commercial products such as domestic goods, set top box, etc., as well as industrial products such as data loggers, software upgradable products, etc.
