Short answer, AFAIK there's no reason not to use them. I've just laid out aboard with the FT232R but am thinking of changing it to use the 230X........EDIT: Another difference, nobody seems to have stock of the 230X. That's a worry if this is a product.______Rob
you might want to try to find the FT230X at Mouser Electronics
Good point Lefty, the 230 only has RTS, that used to be OK for auto reset I think but I'm not sure these days. The 231 has all the signals so presumably it will toggle DTR in the same way as the 232 does.Quoteyou might want to try to find the FT230X at Mouser ElectronicsI just did an Octopart search, it shows no stock anywhere. So I checked Mouser directly, 8000 in stock at $2.75. I guess Octopart isn't up to date although to be fair it's marked as a new product. Octopart normally my first port of call when looking for a part.______Rob
