The cable is easiest way ever to connect to your microcontroller/Raspberry Pi/WiFi router serial console port. Inside the big USB plug is a USB Serial conversion chip and at the end of the 36 ince cable are four wire - red power, black ground, white RX into USB port, and green TX out of the USB port. The power pin provides the 5V @ 500mA direct from the USB port and the RX/TX pins are 3.3V level for interfacing with the most common 3.3V logic level chipsets. Because of the separated pin plugs, this cable is ideal for powering and connecting up to the debug/login console on the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black. Connect the pins as shown to power the Pi or BBB and establish the RX/TX link. If you are running Windows 7/8/10 etc, check the tutorial page with links to drivers for both PL2303 and CP2102 If you are running Mac OS X, check the tutorial page with links to drivers for both PL2303 and CP2012 If you are running Linux, drivers are already included in the kernel, no need to install anything! Also handy for modifying WiFi routers to install alternate OS's, or nearly any other 3.3V logic serial port. This is easier to use than an FTDI cable in many cases because the wires are separated. Note that we call this a "TTL cable" (since that's what they're called) but technically it's CMOS logic.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Cable build is of high quality and is a good length (~3 feet). Mine is one of the newer ones (made post-21 Dec 2016) so it uses the SiLabs CP2012 controller versus the previously used Prolific PL2303 controller. No problems with that out of the box under Linux 3.x: cp210x driver loads and away I go!
I would definitely recommend this cable over some of the cheaper, no-name alternatives you can find here on Amazon.

I connected it up, verified that /dev/ttyUSB0 was there - great!
Wire up the TX and RX pins according to adafruit website, connect up the ground cable. Ignore the power cable as instructed.
Kernel shows this:
[27741.259124] cp210x ttyUSB0: failed set request 0x12 status: -19
[27741.259126] cp210x ttyUSB0: failed set request 0x0 status: -19
[27741.259274] cp210x ttyUSB0: cp210x converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
[27741.259281] cp210x 2-2.2:1.0: device disconnected
The adapter feels incredible hot, i unplug and plug it back in.
Nothing. No longer detected. Fried itself! Worthless product.
