USB-to-Multi-Protocol Serial Converter
A good many situations exists where a computer has to communicate with a device sporting some kind of serial port, be it RS-232, RS-485, I2C, SPI, or a microcontroller serial port. How do you manage when all you have at your disposal is a bunch of USB connectors?

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
