About this product

Description

Basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC
Works with official Arduino and cloned Arduino boards
Can be used for general serial applications
3.3/5V output (switchable via Jumpers)
The RX and TX pins might be inverted on some units.

The DFRobot FTDI USB to Serial Basic Breakout Board (3.3V/5V) is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino and cloned 3.3V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial applications. The major difference with this board is that it brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded. This is a really nice feature to have and allows a sketch to be downloaded without having to hit the reset button. This board will auto reset any Arduino board that has the reset pin brought out to a 6-pin connector.

DFRobot FTDI USB to Serial Basic Breakout Board (3.3V/5V)

There are pros and cons to the FTDI Cable vs the FTDI Basic. This board has TX and RX LEDs that allow you to actually see serial traffic on the LEDs to verify if the board is working, but this board requires a miniB cable. This board was designed to decrease the cost of Arduino development and increase ease of use (the auto-reset feature rocks). Manufacturer's Arduino Pro and LilyPad boards use this type of connector.

Compatibility:
Arduino Fio
9 DOF IMU unit

Simple but effective

Review by Dwayne

As usual, really fast order processing and delivery.

Product does as promised. It's nice to have it 3.3V and 5V switchable, but my big sausage fingers would appreciate a tiny physical switch instead of those jumper blocks.

simple to integrate

I purchased this FTDI to directly interface with my 9dof IMU. The setup was quite simple and straightforward. The addition of jumper pins (to switch between 3.3v and 5v output) is something unique to this FTDI board.

I purchased this FTDI in order to do some projects that required one to be used to make the project operational.

Well made, reliable

Review by lmimkac

This is a standard USB To Serial FTDi data converter... It is well made, reliable, although to pricey. Recommended...

Works Well

Review by Jeff
General

Worked well with an Arduino Pro Mini and a bare atmega32 chip. The jumper for 3.3V/5V is more convenient than some other boards that have a soldered selection, and it has handy holes for test signals that can accept header pins.

Great product

This board works great! I use it to program several arduino based projects, as well as my OSD display for my multirotor FPV. The output voltage switch is great.

Versatile and flexible for a wide range of applications, and the 3.3/5V output switching is handy.
