Build your own TTL/RS232 or TTL/USB interface

Buy a TTL/RS232 or TTL/USB interface

The cheapest TTL/RS232 converter uses a MAX232 with two serial channels for standard TTL 3V input. The cheapest TTL/USB converter uses a chip by FTDI (the same chip is used in the SCON-KIT )

This board is made by Futurelec, however the order is shipped from Thailand so it takes 2-3 weeks to get it.

You'll also need some headers and connectors

This cable is made by FTDI, but the pinout at the connector end would need to be reassigned. Spec Sheet w/ pinout, wire colors & other info

You will also need a 4 pin header 4pinheader.gif
