The AK-RS232 is a TTL to RS232 adapter that converts TTL signals from a microcontroller UART (typically 3.3V or 5V) to RS232 signals like the ones you can find on a PC or MAC. Basically, this boards allows you to connect your microcontroller UART to a PC/MAC serial port.
This adapter can be used with any microcontroller (PIC, Atmel, ARM, ARM Cortex, Renesas, etc), and allows bidirectional communication: converts signals from TTL to RS232 and from RS232 to TTL. The AK-RS232 accepts power supply and TTL signals from 3.3V up to 5V.
The board is built around an ST3232B chip from STmicroelectronics, and drives all the signals you can typically find in a serial port. That is: RX/TX and CTS/RTS.
You can purchase it with a female or male DB9 connector, with or without the plastic case, by choosing the possible combinations in the drop-down menu here above. We also ship a TTL to RS232 converter breakout board without the DB9 connector.
The board comes fully populated and tested.
