The USB2SER tool was designed to provide developers using 5V microcontrollers with easy access to a PC's USB port using the FTDI virtual device drivers. It has a 4-pin female connection for RST, TX, RX and VSS lines.
This module bridges the PC's USB port to logic-level RX and TX signals that can connect directly to a microcontroller's I/O pins. To the PC, the USB2SER appears as a virtual COM port. To the microcontroller, the USB2SER appears as a true 5V serial connection consisting of an RX signal, a TX signal, and a low-pulsing RESET signal controlled by DTR.
