|PL-2303HX based USB/TTL serial converter with 5-pin header and 30cm jumper cable|
A small USB/serial converter module which plugs straight into a USB port and provides a standard 5-pin header interface with 5V, 3.3V, GND and TTL (3.3V) serial TX/RX pins. Suitable for direct connection to any of the Maximite or Micromite projects.
PLEASE NOTE that Windows 8 and 10 will recognise the PL-2303HX but the built-in drivers do not support it. You may get "error code 10". You will need to install one of the drivers at the following link: http://www.siliconchip.com.au/Shop/6/3409
The 5-way cable supplied has female "Dupont" headers on both ends, which plug into standard pin headers. It can be used to connect the adaptor to a Micromite LCD BackPack.
We have only tested this adaptor in Windows; it should work with Linux and Mac OSX but we can not guarantee it.
Note: this item will be discontinued once it has sold out.
