Topic: Not sure where to put this so its here... (Read 707 times) previous topic - next topic


I have a standalone arduino project which needs to communicate with a pc. Besides the FT232 breakout board from adafruit are there any other smaller boards that I can hook up to the standalone that will allow the transfer of serial data?

If not, I heard the FT232 breakout board is slow at programming, would it also be to slow to use as a communication board in a project? Only really need 9600 baud but would like more if possible.

Not sure why you heard this as the programming speed will be the same for all USB / serial chips, it is the boot loader that determines the programming speed.

If you look at the top of the window now you will see a tab that says STORE, click that, they have another breakout / programming board. There are lots of others about.


Thanks Grumpy. Reason I thought it was slower is because on Adafruit store it says "In a pinch, you can even use it to program AVRs (its a bit slow but works!)"
