Specialists in converting legacy peripherals to Universal Serial Bus (USB). We offer the easiest route to USB migration by combining USB-Serial (USB-RS232) and USB-FIFO silicon solutions with our ready-to-go royalty free USB drivers. FTDI’s “total” solutions offer reduced development and debug costs and a fast time to market.
Vinco is a cost effective Vinculum-II (VNC2) development platform inspired by Arduino. The Vinco is a dual channel USB Host/Device Controller is targeted at rapid development and prototyping of USB Host/Device interfaces.
Vinco is a superset of the Arduino Duemilanove / Uno with 2 extra rows of headers providing an extra 10 pins and can be programmed using a subset of standard ANSII ‘C’ using the FTDI free of charge software development environment, consisting of development tools, software drivers and libraries

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.
It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
The Ethernet differs from other boards in that it does not have an onboard USB-to-serial driver chip, but has a Wiznet Ethernet interface. This is the same interface found on the Ethernet shield.
