USB Micro-controller


New Member
Hi All,
The attached image shows a BGA component that is a USB micro-controller. My question is, are these plug and play or do they need to be programmed after receiving them from the factory?

If it's JUST a micro-controller it will obviously be blank when supplied from the manufacturer, but if you buy it as a specifically pre-programmed device from a third party it would come ready programmed.

Assuming it's in a ready made device?, and it's faulty, then you would have to buy it as a spare part from whoever made the device.

Exactly the same as any micro-controller in a product.
