Some question for nano schematic

HI ALL

I have a question for nano schematic.

There's a capacitance series connect on FT232RL Pin 2(DTR#)

i don't understand the use of that capacitor , in the link there's a Sign for C4 is what i'm asking for .

why need to connect capacitor instead of connecting directly?

thanks all . :o

Because the reset needs only a pulse to begin the reset, not a level for an extended period of time.

C4 is in series between the reset switch and the 232RL DTR# pin.
This is so when the reset is pushed a “short” pulse goes the the DTR#.
The DTR# pin has to be left open circuit when the IC is being used, but needs a pulse to do its own reset/load process.
C4 prevents any DC, 0V or 5V from being externally applied to DTR#.

Hope that’s right… Tom… :slight_smile:
PS. I really hate “SearchAWord” schematics.
