FT232R is a USB-to-serial converter chip, which converts the data from USB to serial format. It allows the microcontroller to communicate with a computer without using an RS232 port. The FT232R driver is required for the FT232R chip to work on Windows operating systems. The driver is not necessary for Linux and Mac OS X operating systems.
FT232R drivers are used for programming and debugging. The FT232R driver allows you to connect your development board to a host computer using a USB cable. The FT232R driver is used for programming and debugging. It allows you to connect your development board to a host computer using a USB cable.
Note that this is the FT231X Full Speed USB to Full UART or ft231x usb uart driver 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. See also here.

This is the FT232R and FT245R USB UART drivers. You 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.
