In this tutorial we will interface a 7 Segment LED display serially using FT232 USB to serial converter chip and D2XX library from FTDI. D2XX is a library released by FTDI international,makers of FT232 and other FT series chip to access the advanced functions of the FT232 chip. The control program is written in standard C using D2XX library and is compiled using opensource GCC compiler on a windows 7 machine. Please note that this tutorial is specific to FT232 chip and will not work with USB to serial converter chips manufactured by other companies( like TUSB3410 from TI). Full Tu

Ft232rl, wrapped up in the MMusb232rl board, doesn't support this mode directly, so I am leaning on changing the parity bit to mark or space to simulate the address bit on the PC side. Everything works as a charm when I single step the program on the PC. Just on a sidenote, this program is coded in Qt using QtSerialPort. However, when I let the program run as it normally would in a production environment, the uC only receives several bytes out of the whole packet. I have observed
