This is the LilyPad revision of our FTDI Basic. It is the same as our
other FTDI Basic, but has a purple LilyPad board which is half the

This is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC.
The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official
Arduino and cloned 5V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general
serial applications. The major difference with this board is that it
brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable.
The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch
is downloaded. This is a really nice feature to have and allows a
sketch to be downloaded without having to hit the reset button. This
board will auto reset any Arduino board that has the reset pin brought
out to a 6-pin connector.

The pins labeled BLK and GRN correspond to the colored wires on the
FTDI cable. The black wire on the FTDI cable is GND, green is CTS. Use
these BLK and GRN pins to align the FTDI basic board with your Arduino

This board has TX and RX LEDs that make it a bit better to use over
the FTDI cable. You can actually see serial traffic on the LEDs to
verify if the board is working.

This board was designed to decrease the cost of Arduino development
and increase ease of use (the auto-reset feature rocks!). Our Arduino
Pro boards and LilyPads use this type of connector.

One of the nice features of this board is a jumper on the back of the
board that allows the board to be configured to either 3.3V or 5V
(both power output and IO level). This board ship as 5V, but you can
cut the default trace and add a solder jumper if you need to switch to

continued development and education of e-textiles.
