This is the documentation page for the FTDI-serial board.
The FTDI-serial board has an USB connector and a 3-pin serial/UART connector. The brains of the PCB is an FT232RL chip.
The 3 pin connector is connected as follows
|2||Rx (R)||do not drive at 5V level if jumper is set to 3.3v.|
probably works if driven at 3.3V with jumper at 5V.
|3||Tx (T)||works at 5V or 3.3V level depening on jumper|
|4||V+||5V or 3.3V depending on jumper|
- led1 is connected to CBUS0 (Tx activity)
- led2 is connected to CBUS1 (Rx activity)
- led3 is connected to VCC
1-2: 3V3 (jumper near C2)
2-3: 5V (jumper near the edge of the board
future hardware enhancements
- Size reduced considerably
- Added an VCC pin to the Rx/Tx connector
- Initial public release
