Using the UART interface
5 June 2018
UART (universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter) is a communication interface used between two microcontrollers. Data signals are transferred using two lines, one for transmitting signals (Tx) and one for receiving signals (Rx).
The FTDI USB to TTL serial converter module
5 June 2018
The FTDI USB to TTL serial converter module is an UART (universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter) board used for TTL serial communication. It is a breakout board for the FTDI FT232R chip with an USB interface, can use 3.3 or 5 V DC and has Tx/Rx and other breakout points.
