Geekcreit® FT232RL FTDI USB To TTL Serial Converter Adapter Module (FT232RL FTDI USB To TTL Serial)
Description:

The FT232RL is one of the more commonly used ICs used to convert USB signals to UART signals. This process is very handy in that it allows you communicate with and upload code to an Arduino or other microcontroller without the need for an external programmer.

Features:

Chip: FT232RL
Draw out all signal port of FT232RL chip
RXD / TXD transceiver communication indicator
USB power supply, can choose 5V or 3.3V, set by jumper
With over current protection, using 500mA self-restore fuse
Pin definition: DTR, RXD, TX, VCC, CTS, GND
Pitch: 2.54mm
Size: 36 x 18mm (L x W)

Interface: Mini USB

The USB to TTL serial adapter is based on the high quality and very popular FTDI FT232RL chipset and is an excellent way to connect TTL serial devices to a PC through a USB port.

This USB to TTL serial adapter is ideal for many uses, including:

Programming microprocessors such as ARM, AVR, etc
Working with computing hardware such as routers and switches
Serial communication with many devices such as GPS devices
Serial terminals on devices like the Raspberry Pi
Unlike most USB to TTL serial adapters, this adapter supports both 5V AND 3.3V operation! Simply set the jumper as required to choose between 5V and 3.3V as labelled on the board.

The adapter comes with a right-angle connector fitted allowing you to use it straight away. If you need to access any of the other inputs or outputs of the FT232RL, all the useful signals are provided as through-hole solder pads - ideal for use with straight headers into a breadboard, for example.

Package includes:

1 x FT232RL USB to serial converter module

Wireless USB Gamepad compatible with Raspberry Pi (Wireless gamepad)

Description:

Game On! These wireless games controllers are perfect for all of your Raspberry Pi gaming or robotics needs.

Please note: These are not Bluetooth controllers - they're 2.4GHz wireless (and come with the USB receiver).

Gaming

Compatible with RetroPie/Lakka - simply plug in the controller at boot and follow the controller setup instructions.

You may need to configure buttons for the specific emulator/game you're playing. The RetroPie/Lakka websites and forums are a great place to find out more on button assignments.

For analogue control, make sure you press the analogue button on the controller to enable full analogue thumbstick action (otherwise this is seen as simple button clicks)

Robotics

Control your Raspberry Pi robots with ease! We've got instructions for using these controllers with the CamJam EduKit 3 (although other driver boards and kit will work too)

You can also use the excellent Approximate Engineering Input library!

Install the library by using the following commands:

sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip gcc

pip3 install approxeng.input

Please run your script with Python 3 when using this library! (Python 2 may not work).

Features

  • Tested with the Raspberry Pi
  • Compatible with other systems such as Windows (however not all games/software will work with all types of controllers)

Equipped with fixed screw hole, easy to install
PCB board size: 32mm x 14mm
Uses the LM393 wide voltage comparator

When the VCC and GND are connected, the power indicator will light up.

Put the module on the desktop, adjust the blue potentiometer on the board until the on-board switch indicator lights up, and then slightly turn back the potentiometer untill the indicator light turns off. Hit the desktop with your hand so the vibration shocks the sensor, the indicator light will go on. Vibration stops, indicator light will turn off.


Module connection details:
 
1. VCC: connect power positive
2. GND: connect power negative
3. DO: digital signal output
 
Application:
 
It is used for all kinds of vibration triggering, theft alarm, intelligent car, electronic building block.....
Please note that the trigger time is short when small vibration is induced, not enough to drive the relay.
