USB FTDI Cable

Can anyone tell me a cheap supplier of USB FTDI cables for programming Arduino's without the USB chip on board? Everywhere I have looked they cost a small fortune.

This is $12: http://moderndevice.com/connect.shtml

This is $15: http://www.nkcelectronics.com/pocket-avr-programmer.html

This is $16: http://www.virtualvillage.com/usbasp-atmel-avr-atmega-isp-programr/sku006401-034

Don't know if this qualifies for a fortune, though.

That is not what I am looking for. I am after the USB cables with the FTDI chip built in - Like this....

I just bought one from adafruit, $20 + shipping:

The 12$ BUB by moderndevice is actually much better than the FTDI cable.

  • it breaks out more signals
  • jumper for 3.3/5V logic level
  • auto reset works
