FTDI Friend

FTDI Friend + extras - v1.0

Adafruit Industries LLC

The FTDI Friend is a version of the FTDI FT232RL chip adapter. Like the well-known FTDI cable, it can provide power to your project and there are 4 signal lines for sending data back and forth.

Product Description

It can also do much more. You can change the signal and power lines to be either 3.3V or 5V. Arduino-derivatives and XBees use the RTS line for programming and if you need a DTR line it is there for you. By default, we've set it up so that it matches our FTDI cables. The 6th pin is RTS (as of Arduino IDE v18 this will work perfectly for uploading to 'inos), the power wire is +5V and the signal levels are 3.3V (they are 5V compliant, and should work in the vast majority of 3.3V and 5V signal systems). We also include the extra-long headers that you can use to plug it into a breadboard. There are also 2 red & green LEDs already on the board that pulse when serial is sent or received.
