FTDI USB to Serial Adaptor for Vista/XP/7 DB-9 Serial RS-232 with LEDs

Special Price $15.98

Regular Price: $39.98

Quick Overview

USB to Serial Adapter for Vista and XP DB-9 Serial RS-232 with LEDs and FTDI Chip

Availability: In stock



Manufacturer: SerialGear


The FT232BM is the 2nd generation of FTDI's popular USB UART device and the FT232BL is a lead free version of it.

This device not only adds extra functionality to its predecessor (FT8U232AM) and reduces external component count, but also maintains a high degree of pin compatibility with the original making it easy to upgrade or cost reduce existing designs as well as increasing the potential for using this device in new application areas.
