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 concole 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 (aslo available for download on Prolific Taiwan website).
WARNING: Many of these or similar cables (regardless their equal design) come with a faked PL2303HX chip, instead of the brand new PL2303 TA, and will not work with current Prolific drivers. You will see the yellow warning mark in Window’s hardware manager.
