Licence terms for use of driver?


New member
Can anyone point me to a document detailing the licence terms and acceptable use of the driver for the USB products? Is it to be found here (Crystalfontz) or at FTDI?

Thanks // Martin

We just pass the FTDI drivers through, so the license would have to be with them, or at least specified by them.

That being said, a quick search of the FTDI web site did not show an obvious license page for the driver software.

I guess you would have to e-mail FTDI to ask about it.

Here is the information from the FTDI site - the VCP (virtual com port) drivers we pass through are royalty free
