  • I bought this to program some 4D Systems displays but I found that it is immensely useful as a general FTDI adapter. I use it more often for programming Arduino variants such as the 7-segment LED displays from Sparkfun. Just grab a 6-way header out of one of your Arduino kits and glue it onto the back of this board. Wire it up: Black/Ground, CTS, +5V, TX, RX, Green/RTS and you are good to go FTDI! Little bits of Black+Green heatshrink are useful for some devices that label the FTDI connector with the colours instead of the names. Makes a great substitute for (but no 3v regulator, so it can’t program 3.3v devices.)

No public wish lists :(
