FTDI breakout board
|This is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The
pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino
and cloned 5V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial
applications. The major difference with this board is that it brings out the
DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows
an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded. This is a
really nice feature to have and allows a sketch to be downloaded without
having to hit the reset button. This board will auto reset any Arduino board
that has the reset pin brought out to a 6-pin connector.
