The basic connecting cable for any development board. Use these cables to hook any computer with a standard RS232 Serial port to any of our boards. Cable color and shape may vary slightly from image as our stock rotates.
Note: This cable is not meant to be plugged directly into a computer’s serial port. It is meant to plug into some sort of hardware interface.
The FTDI cable is designed around an FT232, which is housed in a USB-A connector. The other side of the cable is terminated with a separated 4-pin connector with the following pinout: RX (Yellow), TX (Orange), VCC (Red), and GND (Black). A link to the FTDI drivers can be found in the Documents section below.
