This is newest revision of rhydoLABZ make USB to Serial Converter (FT232RL Breakout) board INT-1202. It is a compact and ready to use board which performs USB to Serial TTL (5V and 3V3) and vice versa conversion. The board holds an FT232RL USB UART IC for conversion. This module process an easiest interfacing of USB with microcontroller application boards. The unit is powered through USB and does not require external Power.The module Can be used for interfacing 5V and 3V3 application (ARM ect.) board to PC USB port. The Selected interfacing voltage is also available at RMC connector for powering ( <50ma only) interfacing sensors ect.All FT232RL Pins are available at bergstrip pin out for advanced users.
Check out these really well done tutorials on bit-banging SPI with the FT232. Nice work Michael!
