Product Code: DFR0164

This is a new version of the FTDI breakout board and it features an ATmega8U2 programmed as a USB-to-serial converter--the same chip found on the Arduino Uno.  The 8U2 firmware uses the standard USB COM drivers, and no external driver is needed (however, on Windows, a .inf file is required). 
The USB Serial Adapter has an on-board mini-USB connector and 5 pins including RX (for receiving data from the computer) and TX (for transmitting data).   This adapter can program 5V or 3.3V(selected by switching the jumper) devices.  Ground and Reset pins are also exposed.  Status lights include RX and TX activity.  The adapter can easily connect to the Arduino Ethernet, Mini, Mini Pro, LilyPad, LilyPad Simple, and Fio. 
  • 3.3/5V output (switchable via Jumpers)
  • Dimensions:40 X 21mm
