USB to UART Converter with GPIO – MCP220

USB-to-UART-MCP200-SMD-C075A-500x500

The Module is based on The MCP2200, which is a USB-to-UART serial converter which enables USB connectivity in application that have a UART interface. The device reduces external components by integrating the USB termination resistors. The MCP2200 also has 256-bytes of integrated user EEPROM. The MCP2200 has eight general purpose input / output pins. Four of the pins have alternate functions to indicate USB and communication status.

Specifications 

  • Supply 3- 5V DC
  • On Board TX & RX LED
  • USB activity LED outputs (TxLED and RxLED)
  • Mini USB Interface
  • 6 + 6 PIN Header Connector for I/O and RX-TX Signals
  • UART signal polarity option General Purpose Input/output (GPIO) Pins
  • Eight (8) general purpose I/O pins
  • Supports Full-Speed USB (12 Mb/s)

The serial UART is a common interface used by many chips and devices. Ginpb designed a USB-to-UART adapter that works with 3.3V and 5V UART signals. The device is based around the FTDI FT232BL USB-to-UART IC with an added 3.3V power supply. The different interface levels are selected by an on-board jumper.
