Bafo BF-810 USB Driver

The Bafo BF-810 USB driver is not really the driver from Bafo. But for the chip that the adapter was based on. The Bafo BF-810 USB to DB serial adapter uses a Prolific chip in the adapter. The driver will work with all adapters which uses this Prolific chipset. There might be compatibility issues as this was the last official driver. This for the adapter for Windows 98 to Windows XP and Windows 2000.

CP2102 USB to UART Bridge Driver

The CP2102 USB to UART Bridge driver you can download below. Silicon Labs who manufactures the CP2102 chipset has stated that this chip should not be used in new designs and to look at other options. The CP2102N is now the recommended chipset instead of the CP2102 which they also make. The drivers for the CP2102 USD to UART bridge are royalty free and it is plug and play compliant.

Serial Port Cards

USB DriverThese are the serial ports from different manufactures. Some prefer to have a PCI card rather than an adapter. These serial port cards will allow you to have more COM ports on your computer than what you would normally have available on todays computers. You can see a list of USB to serial adapters on this website as well as the the list of USB to Serial also on here.

USB to Serial Driver

USB DriverIf you are looking for a USB to Serial driver then you will first need to know what processor the convertor is using. You will also need to know which type of serial device you are trying convert to. This can be a USB to Serial RS232 which covers the processors from the MosChip, FTDI as well as Prolific. There is also the USB to Serial RS485 and RS422 which covers the same Prolific processor as well as FTDI and SilLabs.

FT232RL USB to Serial Adapter Driver

USB DriverThe FT232RL USB to Serial Adapter is about a third of the price compared to the FT231X USB to serial adapter and does not have as many options however for a simple environment this will work well enough. Both chips are made by FTDI. There are driver below for MAC Linux as well as all version of Windows. We need to compare the two and see what the difference in price will make and then decide from there as to which one you would really prefer.

Working principles of RS485

USB DriverWhen we talk about the RS485 we first need to know that is stands for the “Recommended Standard no. 485” and that it is the serial communication standard which was established in 1998. The standard is used in many industrial equipment as the signal can be sent far and can still be sent simultaneously at multiple points. This uses Half duplex communication meaning that it can only send information in one direction at a time.
