TTL-232R TTL TO USB SERIAL CONVERTER RANGE OF CABLES Datasheet Version 2.03
Clearance No.: FTDI# 53
1 Description
The TTL-232R cables are a family of USB to TTL serial UART converter cables incorporating FTDI’s
FT232RQ USB to Serial UART interface IC device which handles all the USB signalling and protocols. The
cables provide a fast, simple way to connect devices with a TTL level serial interface to USB.
Each TTL-232R cable contains a small internal electronic circuit board, utilising the FT232R, which is
encapsulated into the USB connector end of the cable. The FT232R datasheet, DS_FT232R, is available at
http://www.ftdichip.com. The other end of the cable comes with a selection of different connectors
supporting various applications see Table 1.1
Cables are FCC, CE, RoHS compliant and are available at TTL levels of +5V and +3.3V.
Cables are available with either a 6-way SIL,0.1” pitch connector, a 3.5mm Audio Jack, an 8 way, keyed
2mm pitch connector (intended for use with VMUSIC2 or VDRIVE2) or bare, tinned wire ended
connections (see Table 1.1)
The USB side of the cable is USB powered and USB 2.0 full speed compatible. Each cable is 1.8m long
and supports a data transfer rate up to 3 Mbaud. Each cable supports the FTDIChip-ID™, with a unique
USB serial number programmed into the FT232R. This feature can be used to create a security or
password protected file transfer access using the cable. Further information and examples on this feature
are available at http://www.ftdichip.com under FTDIChip-ID Projects.
The TTL-232R cables require USB drivers, available free from http://www.ftdichip.com, which are
used to make the FT232R in the cable appear as a virtual COM port (VCP). This then allows the user to
communicate with the USB interface via a standard PC serial emulation port (for example TTY). Another
FTDI USB driver, the D2XX driver, can also be used with application software to directly access the
FT232R on the cable though a DLL. This is illustrated in the Figure 1.1

Clearance No.: FTDI# 53
Appendix A - Cable EEPROM Configuration. A user area of the internal EEPROM is available to system
designers to allow storing additional data. The internal EEPROM descriptors can be programmed in circuit,
over USB without any additional voltage requirement. It can be programmed using the FTDI utility
software called FT_PROG, which can be downloaded from FTDI Utilities on the FTDI website
(www.ftdichip.com).
Lower Operating and Suspend Current. The FT232R has a low 15mA operating supply current and a
very low USB suspend current of approximately 70μA. (Note that during suspend mode, the current
drawn by application should not exceed 2.5mA to remain USB compliant)
Low USB Bandwidth Consumption. The USB interface of the FT232R, and therefore the TTL-232R
cables has been designed to use as little as possible of the total USB bandwidth available from the USB
host controller.
High Output Drive Option. The UART interface I/O pins on the TTL-232R cables (RXD, TXD, RTS#, and
CTS#) can be configured to use the FT232R’s high output drive option. This option allows the FT232R
I/O pins to drive up to three times the standard signal drive level. This allows multiple devices to be
driven, or devices that require a greater signal drive strength to be interfaced to the cables. This option is
enabled in the internal EEPROM.
UART Pin Signal Inversion. The sense of each of the eight UART signals can be individually inverted by
configuring options in the internal EEPROM. For example CTS# (active low) can be changed to CTS
(active high), or TXD can be changed to TXD#.
FTDIChip-ID™. The FT232R includes the new FTDIChip-ID™ security dongle feature. This FTDIChip-ID™
feature allows a unique number to be burnt into each cable during manufacture. This number cannot be
reprogrammed. This number is only readable over USB can be used to form the basis of a security dongle
which can be used to protect any customer application software being copied. This allows the possibility
of using the TTL-232R cables as a dongle for software licensing. Further to this, a renewable license
scheme can be implemented based on the FTDIChip-ID™ number when encrypted with other information.
This encrypted number can be stored in the user area of the FT232R internal EEPROM, and can be
decrypted, then compared with the protected FTDIChip-ID™ to verify that a license is valid. Web based
applications can be used to maintain product licensing this way. An application note, AN232R-02,
available from FTDI website (www.ftdichip.com) describes this feature.
Improved EMI Performance. The TTL-232R cables are FCC and CE certified.
Extended Operating Temperature Range - The TTL-232R cables are capable of operating over an
extended temperature range of -40º to +85º C thus allowing them to be used in automotive or industrial
applications.

The TTL-232R-5V and TTL-232R-3V3 cables are both terminated by a 6 way, 0.1”, Single-In-Line (SIL)

6 TTL-232R-5V-WE and TTL-232R-3V3-WE Cables
The TTL-232R-5V-WE and TTL-232R-3V3-WE cables are both un-terminated; they are bare and tinned
wires. The difference between the two cables is that the TTL-232R-5V-WE operates at +5V levels (signals
and power supply) and the TTL-232R-3V3-WE operates at +3.3V levels (signals only, VCC=+5V).
6.1 TTL-232R-5V-WE, TTL-232R-3V3-WE Connections and Mechanical
Details
The following Figure 6.1 shows the cable signals and the wire colours for these signals on the TTL-232R-
5V-WE and TTL-232R-3V3-WE cables.

7 TTL-232R-3V3-2mm Cables
The TTL-232R-3V3-2mm cable is terminated by a 8 way, 2mm pitch, Single-In-Line (SIL) keyed
connector. The TTL-232R-3V3-2mm operates at +3.3V levels (signals and power supply). These cables
are primarily intended for interfacing the FTDI VDRIVE2 and VMUSIC2 modules.
Note that when connected to VDRIVE2 or VMUSIC2 module, the TTL-232R-3V3-2mm cable 8-way
connector pin 1 connects to pin 8 of the module, and pin 8 of the cable connects to pin 1 of the cable.

Appendix A - Cable EEPROM Configuration
Each TTL-232R cable is controlled by the FTDI FT232R IC. This FT232R device contains an EEPROM which
contains the USB configuration descriptors for that device. When the cable is plugged into a PC or a USB
reset is performed, the PC will read these descriptors. The default values stored into the internal EEPROM
are defined in Table 0.1

The internal EEPROM in the cable can be re-programmed over USB using the utility program FT_PROG.
FT_PROG can be downloaded from the www.ftdichip.com. Version 2.8a or later is required for the FT232R
chip. Users who do not have their own USB Vendor ID but who would like to use a unique Product ID in
their design can apply to FTDI for a free block of unique PIDs. Contact FTDI support for this service.
