How hard would it be for me to add support for FT240X?

Bill Cox
I am interested in using the FT240X for a random number generator USB stick:

https://github.com/waywardgeek/infnoise

For this project, it does not make any sense to have a closed-source driver, and you guys already support several USB devices from this company.  I am an experienced C coder and have written drivers before.  I was just wondering if you guys could give me a feel for how large a task I'm signing up for.  Would it be much work for a decent coder?

Thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill,

Should already be supported.  As far as I'm aware the FT220XD, FT201X,
FT220X, FT221X, FT230X, FT231X, and FT240X are indistinguishable from
the host, except for the default product string stored in their
EEPROM.  For example they'll all show up as a serial port when using
the Linux ftdi_sio module.
