  • I don’t know what advantage they’re implying exists using the chip from FTDI vs a little AVR emulating the USB-Serial niche. But the advantage of using a separate chip from the main AVR is that your USB connection doesn’t reset along with the MCU. It can be annoying when its serial port jumps from /dev/ttyACM0 to /dev/ttyACM1.

No public wish lists :(
