UART connection VS1005 Breakout Board and pc

Post by matboy1200 » Wed 2018-05-09 13:25

Hello VLSI,

I am a student and I just started using the VS1005 breakout board for a project ad school. For a serial connection to the pc is it possible to use any rs232 to usb converters or it is necissery to buy the VSIDE USB UART Cable.

Greetings Matthijs

Hi!

Any 3 volt UART adapter will work.

The important difference being RS232 = +-12V, UART = 3.3V/0V. There are two versions from FTDI et.al, you will need the latter logic-level version.
