FTDI C232HD USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to UART Cables

FTDI C232HD USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to UART Cables

FTDI C232HD USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to UART Cables incorporate FTDI's FT232H USB to UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signalling and protocols. These cables provide a fast, simple way to connect devices with 3.3V or 5.0V digital interfaces to USB. FTDI C232HD USB 2.0 Hi-Speed to UART Cables each contain a small internal electronic circuit board, incorporating the FT232H, which is encapsulated into the USB connector end of the cable. The FT232H is a single channel USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480Mb/s) to UART IC. The digital interface of the cable is made up of ten individual wires which are terminated with single pole connectors which can be connected next to each other on a male header. The cable's digital interface logic is either 3.3V or 5.0V. The USB side of the cable is USB powered and is USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible. The cable is 1.8m long and supports a data transfer rate up to 12 Mbaud.
