Begone, hard-to-program USB devices! At the hands of my FT232RL chip, you will behave like a serial comm port!

Description [Hide]

The FT232RL chip by FTDI is a pretty cool chip. With a minimum of components (mainly capacitors), you can plug this into a USB port, and have it make your device look like it's a regular serial comm port device. This chip is used on many devices you plug into USB for microcontrollers, like PICAxes, Basic STAMPs, and Arduinos.

Yes, it is a SMD device, but it really isn't that hard to solder. Really!
