FTDI Adapter USB Controller - 5V

FTDI Adapter USB Controller - 5V
FTDI Adapter USB Controller - 5V

This board converts a USB connection into 5 volt TX and RX that you can connect straight to the Arduino Mini or other microcontrollers, allowing them to talk to the computer. It is based on the FT232RL chip from FTDI.

Description: This is the newest revision of our FTDI Basic. We use a SMD 6-pin header on the bottom, which makes it smaller and more compact. Functionality has remained the same.
 
This is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino and cloned 5V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial applications. The major difference with this board is that it brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded. This is a really nice feature to have and allows a sketch to be downloaded without having to hit the reset button. This board will auto reset any Arduino board that has the reset pin brought out to a 6-pin connector.

The pins labeled BLK and GRN correspond to the colored wires on the FTDI cable. The black wire on the FTDI cable is GND, green is CTS. Use these BLK and GRN pins to align the FTDI basic board with your Arduino target.

This board has TX and RX LEDs that make it a bit better to use over the FTDI cable. You can actually see serial traffic on the LEDs to verify if the board is working.

I just broke off the usb connector to my multiwii pro board. can this adaptor be used to make a workaround to connect to the multi board? If it can how does it plug into the multiwii board (what set of pins are used? This just sucks breaking off the usb connector. I haven't even gotten the board programed yet. Just a little tug on the cable just by shifting the quad around and bang - game over. Sorry a little rant, very frustrated.

Im using this on the multiwii pro board... i have uploaeded both the MW sketch before and now the MegapirateNG.... But when i try to connect to missionplanner it times out almost every time.... I have been able to get a indication of data beein transferred but it seems to stop... the Tx light is flashing every 2-3 seconds now.... but when i was uploading firmware both lights was flashing rapidly.... Have tried diffrent com ports... baud rates and diffrent drivers... Any other tips?

Anyone knows when it will be restocked? "BACKORDERS usually take no longer than 14 days " it's definitely not this case. Should i delete it from my order, or wait another month to get my already paid parcel? :(

Will this work with the AIR radio of a 3DR telemetry or HK version so i can hook up to laptop as ground station, just to get over the mega noise of a std clone USB ground station, any one who understands the 3DR clone USB issue will know cheers

Great and cheap little USB <-> RS232 converter (TTL voltage level). I soldered one into my Multiplex mc3030 transmitter, connected to its internal serial port. So I can backup the model memories with just o USB cable via laptop (additional software mc3030-manager required). Just ordered more of these...
