This USB to serial converter creates a virtual serial port automatically when you plug it in, allowing you to communicate with RS-232 via your USB port. This chip is the same one used on the original Arduinos, and with this board you can program microcontrollers, toggle IOs, provide USB power to a project, and anything else you can imagine.
1FTDI Advanced USB to Serial Converter
1Set of Jumper Wires
1USB Mini Cable
1Set of Mounting Screws
Check the datasheet for details and graphs but these are the highlights:
3.3V or 5.0V
500 mAof useable, regulated current for your project.
Blinkwhen you send or receive data! IC Package:
FT232RL chip (28pin TSSOP)Protection:
500 mA Resettable Fuse- heats up if you draw too much current ( > 500mA ) and it turns into a resistor, then it cools back down after you remove the short circuit and your project works again!
ToggleIOs on this chip, straight from your computer!
Saveconfiguration or any other data straight to this chip to reuse later
Output 6, 12, 24 MHz clocksto your project and now you don't need a separate oscillator for your Arduino or MCU

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
Our mission is to design electronics that are easy to use, widely adaptable and suitable for students, hobbyists and professionals. Each product was inspired by our experiences as engineering students and our dissatisfaction with what the market had to offer. After studying the weaknesses of competing products, we made those the focal point of our designs.
We're proud to say that all of our boards are designed, tested and in most cases built in the USA.
