  FT8U232AM - USB UART IC
The FT8U232AM is not recommended for new designs - use the FT232R instead.

 

The FT8U232AM USB UART is the ideal solution for upgrading legacy RS232 designs to USB.  It comes complete with royalty-free drivers for most common operating systems.  Features include data transfer rates of up to 3M Baud, a full set of modem handshaking controls and a compact 32LD LQFP package.
