Electronic – RS232-to-USB Converter


Anyone have any recommendations on a good rs232-to-usb converter. There are a lot out there and from the looks of it some are hit or miss.

Good driver support is a must.

Best Answer

Any FT232 chip is good(ie FT232R). The drivers are publicly available and windows will download automatically.

It will show up as a serial port and there are many pre-built solutions available. The Company that makes the FT232 chips, FTDI, will sell many solutions they developed in-house, also.
