The PmodUSBUART module provides a USB to UART interface powered by the FTDI FT232RQ.
The PmodUSBUART uses the standard 6-pin connector to connect to the host device and a micro USB connector to connect to a PC or other USB capable device. The FTDI chip then converts the signal from UART to USB and vice versa.
There are two UART signal pin assignment conventions in use on Digilent products. This product uses the new signal assignment convention. Connecting a product using the new convention with one using the old convention requires the use of a UART Crossover Cable (not included). Click here for a more detailed explanation.
