Ok fellas so i have been looking at the FT232R chip and trying to figure out what is needed to get this baby working with a home made Arduino using the 328p-pu
I have a breakout board from Sparkfun and when using it to upload a sketch all i need is to connect its Rx to my arduinos tx and its Tx to my arduinos Rx , as well as gnd and power , now according to the latest data sheet provided by sparks the chip use to require some resistor but it says it no longer does
So aside from the chip , a usb plug and an arduino board what else would i need to make this work? and what other connections must be made?
OH must wire the Dtr ! for proper resetting .... what else as far as components and connections go?
datasheet also says pin 26 "test" must be grounded for normal operation.
Puts the device into I.C. test mode. Must be tied to GND for normal operation.
