FTDI Chip® - Adapter Cables: USB to Serial & Full-Handshake UART, RS232




Product Description 


USB to Serial RS232 Adapter Cable - UT232R-200


This model provides a simple method of adapting legacy serial devices with RS232 interfaces to modern USB ports.


Each UT232R adapter contains a small internal electronic circuit board which utilises the FTDI FT232R, mounted inside a rugged plastic enclosure capable of withstanding industrial temperature ranges.


The integrated electronics also include RS232 line drivers to provide true RS232 signal levels.


The Cable incorporates a standard USB-A device connector for connection to an upstream host or hub port.


RS232-level signals, including modem handshake signals, are available on an industry-standard DE-9P connector.


The connector moulding also includes thumb screws for locking the DB9 connector to the mating half when assembled. The maximum RS232-level data rate is 1MBaud.


The UT232R adapter cable requires USB device drivers, available free from FTDI, which are used to make the UT232R appear as a Virtual COM Port (VCP). This allows existing serial communications software, such as HyperTerminal, to exchange data through the UT232R to a legacy RS232 peripheral device.



USB to Full-handshake RS232 Adapter Cable - CHIPI-X10


The Chipi-X cable is a USB to RS232 level full-handshake UART cable.


Chipi-X utilises FTDI’s FT231XS USB to full-handshake UART IC and FT3243S RS232 transceiver IC.


A male DB9 (aka DE9) connector provides the connectivity for RS232 communications and a USB-A plug tethered by a 10cm cable to the PCB provides connectivity for USB communications.


All components used are Pb-free (RoHS compliant).
