Description: Replacement:DEV-11814. This part has been upgraded to the µUSB-PA5, go check it out! This page is for reference only.

The micro-USB μUSB-CE5 is a USB to RS-232 bridge converter which is simple, cost effective, very small and easy to use. It uses its own PCB as a card edge type connector to plug into a USB A type cable or directly into a USB hub port.

The absence of a mechanical connector makes the μUSB-CE5 a very low profile device. The design is based around the FT232RQ from FTDI and provides the user with multi baud rate serial data up to 3M baud rate. Standard 0.1” pitch 5 pin female or male header can be soldered to provide the essential signals and power to any application. RX and TX signals are both 3.3V and 5V tolerant.

Board comes assembled with IC as shown.


  • Implements full v2.0 USB protocol
