USB TO TTL CONVERTER
This is a simple to use USB to Serial TTL Converter based on the PL2303 converter IC..This converter is highly reliable and can be used on all Windows operating systems, XP,VISTA,WIN7 & WIN8 both 32 & 64bit versions..
When connected to a USB port this converter sets up a virtual serial port which can be used and interfaced just like any normal serial port.
You can use this board with all our development boards to do serial communication through USB.
This converter is USB powered and needs no external power. It can provide the USB port's 5V power supply to an external circuit. An board has an onboard 3V3 regulator which is brought out to the header pin.
Note for Advanced users :
The DTR pin 2 on the PL2303 IC can be used for Arduino auto-reset.
We need to use a 0.1 uF capactitor and connect it one end to the Pin 2 of the IC and the other end to the Arduino auto-reset.
Care should be taken not to short nearby pins while soldering disc capacitor to pin2 of PL2303
