Converter enables the connection between two popular serial interfaces USB and UART is 3.3 V. The module is based on reliable system FT232RL (documentation) made by the company FTDI, which ensures stable operation and cooperation with the most popular operating systems.
The module can be used to exchange data between the computer and the system or microcontroller or for programming electronic sets with remote serial interface, e.g. Arduino or STM32Discovery. 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 (3.3 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.
