Suported FTDI devices include:
UART and GPIO bridges
UART, GPIO and multi-serial protocols (SPI, I2C, JTAG) bridges
PyFtdi currently supports the following features:
PyFtdi requires Python 3.6+.
PyFtdi v0.52 was the last PyFtdi version to support Python 3.5. Python 3.5 has reached end-of-life on September 5th, 2020.
Starting with version v0.40.0, several API changes are being introduced. While PyFtdi tries to maintain backward compatibility with previous versions, some of these changes may require existing clients to update calls to PyFtdi.
Do not upgrade to v0.40.0 or above without testing your client against the new PyFtdi releases. PyFtdi versions up to v0.39.9 keep a stable API with v0.22+ series.
See the Major Changes section on the online documentation for details about potential API breaks.
