Silicon Labs (Austin, TX) has introduced the new CP2130 USB-to-SPI bridge controller that offers a turnkey solution for bridging a universal serial bus (USB) host and a serial peripheral interface (SPI) bus with driver support for Windows(R), OS X and Linux operating systems. The CP2130 enables developers to add USB functionality to their applications without requiring USB software, firmware or hardware domain expertise typically required with more complex alternatives. The CP2130 device includes a USB 2.0 full-speed controller and transceiver, a SPI controller that enables communication with a wide range of SPI slave devices down to 1.8 V, 348-byte programmable memory, crystal-less USB operation and an integrated 5 V voltage regulator rated at 100 mA.
