The FT232R is a USB to UART interface that allows you to connect your computer to a serial device. The FT232R is a USB to UART interface that allows you to connect your computer to a serial device. It can be used for debugging, programming, and other purposes. The FT232R is an inexpensive and easy-to-use tool for interfacing with the serial port of embedded systems.
Introduction – What is a ft232r driver and what does it do?
A general-purpose USB to UART/serial device converter with built-in voltage translation circuits
Many embedded devices, including our favorite Arduino, contain a small 8061 Microprocessor. Many of these devices also require an FT232R driver to enable the serial interface with the host PC. You can purchase an FTDI chipset on Amazon that incorporates both hosts the 8061 and FT232R function on a single die. You can find an entire family of devices on UC3D website that are compliant with the ft232r driver. Also the FT232R operating systems are explained on here as well as the installation of the driver.
The FT232R is a USB to UART interface that has a wide range of applications. It is used in many different electronic devices, including Arduino boards and Raspberry Pi boards. There is also the Prolific usb to serial driver on here.
The FT232R can be used as a serial debug interface for microprocessors, as an ISP programming interface for microprocessor flash memory, as a high-speed data acquisition device, or as an RS-232/485/422 converter.In this article we will show you how to install the FT232R in Linux and Windows operating systems.
If you are using an Arduino board with USB interface then you need to download the FTDI driver installer. You can find the link below. This will help you to connect your Arduino board with your computer easily.
Download the driver installer from this link.
Open the folder where you saved the driver installer file. Double click on the setup.exe file to start the installation process. Follow the instructions displayed on screen. After successful completion of the installation process, restart your system.
See the ft232r driver to download this.

To use the FTDI drivers, open the Arduino IDE (integrated development environment) software. Select File > Preferences > Boards Manager. Click on the “+” button next to the board type you wish to add. A list of available boards will appear. Select the one you wish to add and click OK. You should now see the new board listed under Tools > Board. If not, select Tools > Board again. Now, click on the Upload button at the top right corner of the window. This will upload the sketch to the board.
Once the sketch has been uploaded, double-click on the board name to open the serial monitor. You should see some text scrolling by as the program runs.
