E-Blocks USB to RS232 Interface Board US$73.10

E-Blocks USB to RS232 Interface Board

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.

This interface board allows you to add a USB communications interface to your project easily. The board contains an FTDI FT232BL interface chip which provides an interface between a USB controller and a microcontroller UART using RS232 protocols. A virtual COM port driver is available which allows you to utilize the board in Windows, Mac and Linux applications including Visual Basic and Visual C++ etc. The FTDI device is able to communicate with data transfer speeds of up to 3 Mbaud.

E-Blocks USB to RS232 Interface Board Features

  • E-blocks compatible
  • Low cost
  • Provides a USB interface for all your projects
  • Data transfer rates of up to 3 Mbaud
  • USB 1.0 and USB 2.0 compatible

E-Blocks Overview

E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.

Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers, Altera CPLDs, Arduino or Raspberry Pi control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
