Back in stock! This is a FTDI FT232RL usb/serial chip embedded in a cable that has a 6-pin socket at the end. These are perfect for use with a Boarduino, Meggy’s, or other Arduino clones, and Fuzeboxen. Useful whenever you want to communicate with a TTL serial device, such as an XPort, GPS, XBee or SIM module through a breakout board.
The version we have is the 5.0V (we used to carry the 3.3V) the only difference is that the 5.0V cable sends data signals at 5.0V levels instead of 3V The power line provides 5V. We suggest this for any product that needs FTDI cables in the shop except for YBox2. We don’t suggest using them with 3v microcontrollers or devices unless there is a level shifter to protect it (such as the XBee adapter which is protected).
