USB to TTL converters are an essential for prototyping - they provide a direct interface with the target device. This module connects to your computer USB port and there are 4 wires which connect with your target device.
- Fully enclosed professional finish.
- Built-in PL2303 USB to Serial Controller
- Designed to be used for USB to TTL electronic projects
- TTL interface output, easy to connect to your MCU
- Dual 3.3V and 5V Power output (by Changing the red wire termination)
- Can independantly power the circuit with 5V or 3.3V
- Compact design
- Red - power. This pin provides up to 500mA current. YOU MUST NOT use other power supplies if you choose to power the target device with this Adaptor.
- Black - ground (always needed, regardless if the Adaptor is powering the target device or not)
