  UM232H-B Breakout Module

The UM232H-B is a development module for FTDI’s FT232H Hi-Speed to serial/parallel interface connector.

This single channel interface IC can be configured to transfer data over the following interfaces UART, FIFO, FT1248, I2C, SPI and GPIO.

This hardware is a breakout board that converts Hi-Speed USB2.0 to a serial/parallel interface and connects the signals to a 2.00mm pitch 18pin female receptacle. No USB connector is used, instead this module plugs directly into the USB host connector and the pads of the PCB makes electrical contact with the electrical contacts of the USB connector.

The module is available in three variants; with female receptacle (UM232H-B-01), with no connector (UM232H-B-NC) or wire-ended (UM232H-B-WE).
