Quick Overview

USB to Serial Adapter for Vista and XP DB-9 Serial RS-232 with LEDs and FTDI Chip

The FT232BM is the 2nd generation of FTDI's popular USB UART device and the FT232BL is a lead free version of it.

This device not only adds extra functionality to its predecessor (FT8U232AM) and reduces external component count, but also maintains a high degree of pin compatibility with the original making it easy to upgrade or cost reduce existing designs as well as increasing the potential for using this device in new application areas.

    1. very satistifed Review by Pat

      This adapted worked for me I tried several others for my singer embroidery machine to connect to my windows 8 computer but only this one with the FTDI USB port works, Thanks to the singer tech. that recommended it and you for having the great price. (Posted on 5/26/2014)

    2. Good product--works great Review by Phyllis A.

      This is a good product. I am a computer novice. Needed this cable to make my new computer compatible with my Singer PSW2.0 digitizing program. It works fine.
      Also would like to know if maybe you have, or know where they might be available at a reasonable price, Smart Media Cards. This is what I need to use in the PSW.0 Card Reader-Writer. I hope this makes sense.

      Thank you for your help. (Posted on 7/24/2013)

    3. Superb Product Review by Terri

      Prior to ordering this adapter, I purchased one for $45 from a local office supplier that did not work and cannot be returned. This FTDI USB to Serial Adaptor was one-third the price and works perfectly. I was also impressed with the speed of your service. (Posted on 12/21/2012)

    4. Works great with singer psw 1.0 Review by bob
