FT231X – Full Speed USB to Full UART

USB DriverNote that this is the FT231X specifications and not that of the FT230X IC also on this website which are all manufactured by FTDI. The FT231X is also extensively used in adapter cables for computers as well as televisions and these have been listed below. It offers a compact bridge to full handshake UART interfaces. The IC makes it easy to add to a system design and it also offers the full FT-X series feature set as can be seen below.

FT230X – Full Speed USB to Basic UART

USB DriverThe FT230X is a compact bridge to basic UART interfaces with low power consumption (8mA) and operating up to 3M Baud. The IC has been used extensively as part of a USB UART TTL 3.3v cable which is marketed by a Chinese company called Sinforcon. The FT230X IC has been used in the cable and it is USB 2.0, USB1.0 compatible. It also has an integrated 2048 byte EEPROM and is sold as a USB UART TTL cable supporting TTL 3.3v or TTL 5v.

FT232R and FT245R USB UART Drivers

USB DriverYou do not normally need a UART driver for the devices as they are treated by the computer in the same way as the BM series devices. That noted that any driver which worked on the BM series devices will also now work with the R series devices.  Note that there are some new functionalities which may now require the most recent drivers for the devices. As of date any application which was coded for both the AM or BM series devices should still work with R series devices. There should be very few changes in this regard. You can also see some of the most common problems here.

RS232 Physical Properties

USB DriverYou can find the RS232 pinout on this website as well. These are the other characteristics of the RS232 interface which you might also find of interest. Below we will explain the communication methods capable of communicating in different environments. Note that voltage and distance is important with the RS232 standard. Also note the baud rates with distance as well as other specifications so look at the FT232R driver also on this website.
