 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hey guys, recently I just bought a FT232RL chip from RS. So, I would like to ask, how can I connect that to my AVR chip so that I can program my AVR chip just through the USB cable ?

Any schematic ?

Thank you

What is RS? Did you buy a bare chip or a board?

Look at the Duemilanove schematic for an example of connecting them, it's not very complicated at all.

Here's the FTDI part of a schematic I used for a board a while back.

I'm not sure if it's the FT232RL but I think so.

The FT Txd and Rxd connect to the Atmega Rxd and Txd. Look at the arrows on the chip to see the direction of the signals.

The left side of C5 goes to Reset. I would compare this against an Arduino schematic as well.

That is a 500ma fuse to protect your PC in case you ever try to draw too much current from the USB +5vdc voltage source.

Yep.

Not normally although I guess it would work. There are many SMD fuses around that people usually use. This sort of thing
