Description

FTDI Basic Breakout Arduino USB-TTL 6 PIN 3.3 5V for MWC MultiWii Lite /SE


This is the newest revision of our FTDI BASIC. It now uses 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.

This board was designed to decrease the cost of Arduino development and increase ease of use (the auto-reset feature rocks!). Our Arduino Pro boards and LilyPads use this type of connector.

One of the nice features of this board is a jumper on the back of the board that allows the board to be configured to either 3.3V or 5V (both power output and IO level). This board ship default to 5V, but you can cut the default trace and add a solder jumper if you need to switch to 3.3V.

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
Price: *****
Ease of Use: *****
Build Quality: *****
Usefulness: *****
Overall Rating: *****
Pros:Worked with my CRUIS MultiWii board and also my Arduino Pro Minis, does the job quite well.
Cons:None really, other than the fact that I have no idea where the "3.3v jumper" is but since I don't process any 3.3v boards it doesn't really bother me
Other Thoughts:You need to install drivers if you want to use this on Windows but that's not the product's fault. For those who're looking for them they can be found here: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
Bottomline:Get it if you need one, this is one of the best choices available
  No SMD Headers, but fine

Pros:cheap
works as drop in replacement for the sparkfun one which it copies
Cons:No marks on the solder jumper selecting 3.3V or 5V
This is not the SMD version from the description, but a PTH version with angle header as pictured
Other Thoughts:none
Bottomline:fine little thing and as you can't have enough of these a cheap one is a good one
