Differences between ALFAT boards


#1

We have been using the uALFATUSB-3 boards in our products for years. What are the differences between that and the new ALFAT USB board? What are the differences between the ALFAT OEM Board and the new ALFAT USB board? I am mainly concerned with the command set and software interface differences. We have an ALFAT OEM board for evaluation and the command set and interface is quite different from the uALFATUSB-3 board. Is the new ALFAT USB board like the uALFATUSB-3 or the ALFAT OEM or neither?


#2

Electrically and physically, they are the same. However, the command structure is slightly different. This means, the new ALFAT boards will drop in the old uALFAT boards but you will need to change your code. The interface/commands is the same on all ALFAT board, as they all use the same chipset, which is ALFAT.

ALFAT is faster, better and lower cost than uALFAT and USBwiz, especially that the USB Host is built in.

Welcome to the community.
