USB to TTL UART Serial Adapter (based on FTDI FT232RL)

This multi-purpose breakout from Sparkfun is a must-have for anyone who's into electronics.
Based on  FTDI's popular USB to UART IC and now with internal oscillator and EEPROM, the FT232RL is an impressive IC!

The FTDI chip implements a serial UART and all signals are at TTL level (the board is 3.3V and 5V tolerant).
You just need to connect the board to a USB port in your computer and it will show up as a normal COMM port.
Once the board is recognized you can interact with it just as if you were using a regular COMM port.

This board is ideal to connect your electronics projects to your PC; "talk" to TTL devices such as Zigbee, Bluetooth modems, GPS, ...


  • Implements full v2.0 USB protocol
  • Implements all RS232 communication pins:
    • RX and TX at TTL level (tolerant to both 3.3V and 5V)
    • Gnd and Vcc pins capable of supplying 3.3V and 5V
      (The board gets its power from the USB port and is capable fo supplying small amounts of current to other devices)
    • CTS & RTS; DSR & DCD; RI
    • Additionally all pins in the FT232RL chip are exposed by the board
  • Internal EEPROM for device ID and Product Description strings
  • Needs no external crystal
  • Royalty-Free Driver support for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX
  • VCCIO is tied to 3.3V through a solder jumper. You have the option of clearing this jumper and tying the VCCIO pin to 5V or any other IO voltage you need.
    Board comes assembled with IC as shown.
