Doubts about PSX Serial Cable

Post by Vurdulahk » March 22nd, 2019, 6:25 am

First of all I wanted to greet the whole PSXDev community.
I have a terrible doubt that assails me:
What is the FT232 module to buy to create the Serial Cable?

Thank You!

For PSXserial, you can use pretty much any USB UART. I have tried with various models. You need one that runs at 3.3v, either of those linked to will be fine. I personally use the CP2102/2103 versions which work perfectly.

FT232 (usually fake FTDI chips - but work fine)
CP2102/CP210x chips - work fine
CH340 - usually very cheap and work perfectly.

I wouldnt use anything with a Prolific UART if you can help it.

Thanks
