OSEPP's FTDI breakout board is a USB-to-serial (TTL) converter for serial communication with Arduino-compatible boards that don't have a built-in USB-to-serial converter. The board uses the popular FT232RL chip from FTDI.
- 100% Arduino compatible.
- Connects via mini USB.
- Breadboard-friendly form factor.
- Operates on either 3.3 or 5V.
The pin VCC can be easily configured to be 3.3 or 5V by placement of a jumper. This allows the board to be used with boards that operate on either 3.3 or 5V nominal voltage.
The FTDI board is also designed for flexible connections to other boards. For example, its female header connects easily to the male pin header of the OSEPP Pro. Furthermore, connecting the provided male pin headers to the female pin header allows connections to pinout of the Pro Mini. The male pin headers can also be soldered to the FTDI board to make it breadboard-mountable.
Drivers for the virtual COM port (VCP) are available for virtually all mainstream operating systems and can be found here.
