PL2303TA Product Datasheet - 9 - Document Version 1.1.1
3.0 Introduction
PL2303TA provides a convenient solution for connecting an RS232-like full-duplex asynchronous
serial device to any Universal Serial Bus (USB) capable host. PL2303TA highly compatible drivers
could simulate the traditional COM port on most operating systems allowing the existing applications
based on COM port to easily migrate and be made USB ready without having to rewrite the COM port
software application.
By taking advantage of USB bulk transfer mode, large data buffers, and automatic flow control,
PL2303TA is capable of achieving higher throughput compared to traditional UART (Universal
Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter) ports. When real RS232 signaling is not required, baud rate
higher than 115200 bps could be used for even higher performance. The flexible baud rate generator of
PL2303TA could be programmed to generate any rate between 75 bps and 6M bps.
PL2303TA is exclusively designed for mobile and embedded solutions in mind, providing a small
footprint that could easily fit in to any connectors and handheld devices. With very small power
consumption in either operating or suspend mode, PL2303TA is perfect for bus powered operation
with plenty of power left for the attached devices. Flexible signal level requirement on the RS232-like
serial port side also allows PL2303TA to connect directly to any 3.3V~1.8V range devices.

6.0 EEPROM Configuration
The default configuration descriptors are stored in the chip internally which will be loaded during
power-on reset or USB bus reset when there is no external EEPROM detected or external EEPROM is
empty. The PL2303TA has four string descriptors: Language ID, Manufacturer, Product, and Serial
Number. Except for Serial Number, the first three string descriptors are stored in the chip with a fixed
string value and cannot be modified.

Product Description
USB-Serial Controller
This string will also be shown in Device
Manager when driver is not installed. If driver
is installed, the product string in driver INF file
will be shown instead.
However, other device descriptors could be modified and stored to an external 2-wire serial EEPROM
like USB Vendor ID (VID), Product ID (PID), serial number, and other configuration descriptors. The
external EEPROM can be programmed using the Prolific EEPROM Writer utility software called
EEWriter, which can be requested from Prolific or authorized distributors.

This option allows setting the serial port output
pin signals (TXD, RTS, DTR) to HIGH during
suspend mode.
USB Load Mode
Light Load (100mA)
This option sets the USB device maximum
power if 100mA (low-power) or 500mA (high
power).
Flow Control Setting
No Flow Control
This option allows to set the flow control initial
setting to none, H/W, or S/W control.
Note: H/W and S/W flow control can also be
set and configured on customer/user serial
communication software.
Wakeup Trigger Pin
Wakeup trigger on
RI
This option allows setting the trigger pin for
remote wakeup function. When in suspend
mode, changes on the enabled serial port
input signals could trigger a wakeup event.
Shutdown Pin Mode
Output LOW during

This option allows setting the Shutdown pin
(Pin 12) mode to Output HIGH or LOW on
normal mode or Suspend mode.

9.0 USB to RS-232 Application Example
Following is an example of using the PL2303TA as a USB to RS232 converter where a RS232
transceiver (Sipex SP213EHCA) is used to convert the TTL levels serial interface of the PL2303TA to
RS232 levels as well as converting the +5V nominal VCC to the ±9V required by RS232. The
SP213EHCA transceiver provides up to 500Kbps data rate transmission which is ideal for many
designs requiring high speed performance. Contact Prolific FAE for more PCB design support.
