The USB-RS232-PCB is a USB to RS232 level serial UART converter PCB incorporating FTDI’s FT232RQ USB to Serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signalling and protocols. The PCB provides a fast, simple way to connect devices with a RS232 level serial interface to USB. Each device contains a small internal electronic circuit board, utilising the FT232R plus a USB type-A connector. The integrated electronics also include an RS232 level shifter plus Tx and Rx LEDs which give a visual indication of UART traffic. The PCB is USB powered and USB 2.0 full speed compatible. Each PCB supports a data transfer rate up to 1 Mbaud and 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 PCB.
