Embecosm occasionally provides boards and kits as engineering aids and in support of events that aim to stimulate interest in computer science.
This simple yet incredibly useful tool is based around the FT232H IC and provides a serial interface with support for 3.3v and 5v logic levels and data rates of up to 1 Mbaud. Typical uses include:
- Programming adapter for Arduino and similar microcontroller boards;
- Connecting a PC to an embedded system console, e.g. Raspberry Pi;
- Implementing a bit-banged interface.
Please note that prior to use the correct logic level must be set using the pin jumper.
