New Product Announcement: DB9 USB to Digital Modules

FTDI Chip has added a series of USB to digital level interface modules, in DB9 form factors, to its product portfolio. These modules all utilise FTDI’s FT232R USB to serial UART bridge chip, which is capable of supporting data rates of 12 Mbits/s (USB Full Speed). They allow for the quick and easy upgrading of pieces of hardware to today’s most widely used serial interface standard in a highly convenient and cost effective manner. Drivers for the modules are available to download direct from the FTDI website.
