TTL-232R-5V cable is a family of USB to TTL serial UART converter cables incorporating FT232RL USB to Serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signalling and protocols. The cables provide a fast, simple way to connect devices with a TTL level serial interface to USB. Each TTL-232R cable contains a small internal electronic circuit board, utilising the FT232R, which is encapsulated into the USB connector end of the cable. The other end of the cable comes with the 6 pin SIL, 0.1 pitch connector. The cable supports the FTDIChip-ID, with a unique USB serial number programmed into the FT232R. This feature can be used to create a security or password protected file transfer access using the cable.USB side of the cable is USB powered and USB 2.0 full speed compatible
1.8m long and supports a data transfer rate up to 3Mbaud
Require USB drivers
On board FT232RQ provides single chip USB to asynchronous serial data transfer interface
Entire USB protocol handled by the electronics in the cable USB
Connect directly to a microcontroller UART or I/O pins
Internal EEPROM with user writeable area
3.3V output allows external logic to be powered from the USB port
The FTDI cable is a USB to Serial (TTL level) converter which allows for a simple way to connect TTL interface devices to USB. The VCC pins of this FTDI cable are configured to operate at 5V with 3.3V I/O.
The FTDI cable is designed around an FT232RL, which is housed in a USB A connector. The other side of the cable is terminated with a 0.1" pitch, 6-pin connector with the following pinout: RTS, RX, TX, 5V, CTS, GND (RTS is the green cable and GND is black).
