Add to Cart:


This PRO version mini USB to Serial adapter is similar to our STD mini adapter however with some major exceptions: this adapter is designed around the popular and highly reliable FT232RL chip from FTDI which makes this adapter superior to the Standard version. Furthermore this adapter has indication LED lights to show TX and RX activity.

It is perfect for mobile applications and devices as the small size makes it easy to store it in a laptop bag or a pocket, it is also ideal simply if you want a convenient and small adapter which makes it easy to add a serial port to any desktop or laptop, for general office, commercial and industrial use.

After installing the included drivers the serial port is automatically configured as an additional COM port which shows up in your operating system's Device Manager. This COM port can be accessed and used as if it was a standard built-in COM port.

The FT232RL chip and drivers also allows the user to adjust several port settings such as baud rate, data bits, flow control, COM port number and even latency times and more.

This USB to serial adapter is compatible with most serial devices and we have successfully tested it with several GPS and PDA devices (Garmin, Mallagan, Palm), modems, printers, scanners, digital cameras and office equipment.

Easy installation of drivers and requires no IRQ, DMA, or I/O port resources which means that more devices can be attached to your system without the hassle of device and resource conflicts.

As all our high performance USB to serial adapters this adapter is fully compatible with all versions of Windows 32/64-bit and most recent versions of Linux and Mac.
