SparkFun FT232RL Breakout Board

This little guy will be making his appearance in some future electronics projects 

:thumbsup:

From SparkFun Electronics, this little guy is a USB to UART converter, I'll see what kind of fun I can have with it.

SparkFun Electronics says:

[This is a...] basic breakout board for FTDI's popular USB to UART IC. Now with
internal oscillator and EEPROM, the FT232RL is an impressive IC!

VCCIO is now tied to 3.3V through a solder jumper. You have the
option of clearing this jumper and tying the VCCIO pin to 5V or any
other IO voltage you need.

Features:

  • Implements full v2.0 USB protocol
  • Needs no external crystal
  • Internal EEPROM for device ID and Product Description strings
  • Royalty-Free Driver support for Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX
