USB TTL RS232 COM Port Converter Cable PL2303TA Windows XP to 10
FREE Canada & USA shipping available (see details)
USB-TTL (serial RX/TX) adapter cable with genuine PL2303 TA chip.
This USB-TTL converter cable guarantees the highest compatibility with all Microsoft Windows Versions from XP to 10.
You can use it for example for Arduino programming, or Raspberry Pi console operation. Or you can turn any 5V-level RX/TX connection like for 433/315MHz wireless modules into a COM connection, to access it for example with a serial console/monitor program.
The current driver (in 09/2018) is version 1.20 from 7/30/2018 and will be updated through Windows Update (also available for download on the Prolific Taiwan website).
Note: Many very similar cables come with a faked PL2303HX chip, instead of the original PL2303 TA, and will not work with current Prolific drivers. You will only see a warning in Windows hardware manager.
