Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA) using an FTDI 311/312
In this video, I'll give you a brief overview of implementing the Android Open Accessory Protocol (AOA) using an FTDI 311/312.
AOA is a protocol designed by google to allow android devices to connect with a wide variety of external peripherals over USB. Since the AOA device acts as a host, it is able to connect to most Android devices, even devices that do not have USB host capabilities themselves.
FTDI provides chips that are preprogrammed with the AOA protocol, making it easy for users to incorporate them in their designs. There are a minimal number of connections that need to be made between your hardware and the FTDI device, and several example Android apps to help you build your application quickly.
