FT232 USB Mini UART Board
- Original FT232RL on board
- Supports Mac, Linux, Android, WinCE, Windows 7/8/8.1/10
- 3 power modes : 5V output, 3.3V output, or powered by target board (3.3V-5V)
- 3 LEDs: TXD LED, RXD LED, POWER LED
- Functional Pins
- TXD, RXD, RTS#, CTS# : Connected to on-board pin headers
- Further Pins : Accessible per drilled holes (separate pin headers can be used for easy connection to user system; the pitch is compatible with bread boards)
- VCCIO ↔ 3.3V or 5V output (the module is powered from USB, onboard jumper should be shorted to 3.3V or 5V)
- GND ↔ GND
- TXD ↔ MCU.RX (signal direction: MCU.RX << FT232 << PC.TX)
- RXD ↔ MCU.TX (signal direction: MCU.TX >> FT232 >> PC.RX)
- RTS ↔ MCU.CTS (signal direction: MCU.CTS << FT232 << PC.RTS)
- CTS ↔ MCU.RTS (signal direction: MCU.RTS >> FT232 >> PC.CTS)

Now in its Fifth Edition, USB Complete bridges the gap between the technical specifications and the real world of designing and programming devices that connect over the Universal Serial Bus (USB).
Learn how to select a USB speed, device class, and hardware for a design; communicate with devices using Visual C#; use standard host drivers to access devices, including devices that perform vendor-defined tasks; save power with USB's built-in power-conserving protocols; and create robust designs using testing and debugging tools.
This fully revised edition also covers SuperSpeed and SuperSpeedPlus (USB 3.1), wireless options, and USB OTG and embedded hosts.
