FT232RL Datasheet PDF – USB UART IC – FTDI Chip

Part Number: FT232RL

Function: USB to asynchronous serial data transfer interface, USB UART IC

Package: 28 Pin SSOP, QFN-32 Type

Manufacturer: Future Technology




The FT232RL is a USB to serial UART interface .


1. Single chip USB to asynchronous serial data transfer interface.
2. Entire USB protocol handled on the chip. No USB specific firmware programming required.
3. Fully integrated  1024  bit  EEPROM  storing device descriptors and CBUS I/O configuration.
4. Fully integrated USB termination resistors.
5. Fully integrated clock generation with no external crystal required plus optional clock output selection enabling a glue-less interface to external MCU or FPGA.
6. Data transfer rates from 300  baud to 3 Mbaud(RS422, RS485, RS232 ) at TTL levels.
7. 128 byte receive buffer and 256 byte transmit buffer utilising buffer smoothing technology to allow for high data throughput.
