usb_uart_01The FT232R is a USB to serial universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter interface with optional clock generator output, that also has a new FTDIChip-ID. As you already know UART is a small piece of computer software that translates data between serial and parallel forms. They are often used in conjuction with communication standarts. For these specific series are now available asynchronous and synchronous bit bang interface modes. For a more effective work, they have been fully simplified by integrating USB resistors and external EEPROM onto the device.
In case that your USB is working wrong, you can download the new driver released by the FTDI team, that will repair the translate data, so it will work properly.
