Raspberry Pi USB TTL Cable: ideal for debugging, programming, powering and more
This TTL cable will prove useful in more ways than one for users of a Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black or other compatible microcontroller. More practical than an FTDI cable, because it has 4 separate cables for the RX/TX connection, it allows you to:
- connect your Raspberry Pi’s serial console port to your computer to power and debug the microcontroller;
- program your 3.3V microcontroller from your computer;
- connect a 3.3V WiFi router to your computer.
Compatibility of the Raspberry Pi console cable
You can use the Pi USB TTL Cable for Raspberry Pi with all currently used versions of Windows, Linux and Mac, including older versions of MacOS X by downloading a specific driver.
Please note that this cable is not suitable for Arduino re-programming on Boarduino, MENTA, Monochron or any other device – for this it’s best to use an FTDI cable equipped with DTR/RTS wires.
