FTD2XX.jl is a thin wrapper for FTDI's D2XX driver.
FTD2XX.jl is currently unregistered. It can be installed using

UART quick start
The UART may be accessed as type IOftuart <: IO
get information about devices
device_infomation_list = ft_getdeviceinfolist()
open a device.
io = open(FT_SerialNumber("FTXRNZUJ"),9600,8,1,"n") # open by serial number
io = open(FT_Description("C232HM-EDHSL-0"),9600,8,1,"n") # open by description
io = open(FT_Location(0x000001a2),9600,8,1,"n") # open by location
io = open(FT_DeviceIndex(0),9600,8,1,"n") # open by device index
uartconfig = UARTConfiguration(9600,8,1,"n", readtimeout = 1000, # in milliseconds writetimeout = 1000, # in milliseconds flowcontrol = "none", # none, rts_cts, dtr_dsr, xon_xoff xon = 0x11, xoff = 0x13) io = open(FT_DeviceIndex(0),uartconfig)
use all the normal IO functions
write(io, 0x55) byteread = read(io, UInt8)
close the device
D2XX Programmer's Guide (from FTDI)
FTD2XX.jl is compatible with windows, linux, and osx. See FTDI's installation guides for instructions on installing drivers for your operating system. Drivers are assumed to be installed in the default locations.
Additional Information for Linux
I2C as an array.
SPI, JTAG as readdata = writeread(datatowrite)
