Converter enables the connection between two popular serial interfaces USB and UART. The module is based on the reliable system FT232RL (documentation) made by the company FTDI, ensures stable operation and cooperation with the most popular operating systems. To connect the system to the computer you need a cord with a mini-usb.
SparkFun FTDI was developed with programming Arduino in mind. It has automatic restart, and the distance between connectors is suitable for modules Arduino Pro: goldpin female 6 x 1.
The module has terminals in the form of female corner connectors goldpin with signals Rx, Tx, DTR, CTS and power supply lines: PWR (5 V) and GND. The board consists of the status LEDs (TX and RX), allowing you to monitor the status of communications. The converter connects to the computer using a cable via USB.
|The system can be configured so that it also worked with voltage of 3.3 V. This requires soldering the jumper on the back side of the board.|
