DIY Breakout Board FT232RL from sparkfun

One day ordering parts for ongoing projects I ordered a chip FT232RL planning to make USB to UART adapter.


It has been a while and watching my “strategic reserve” electronic things I remembered abot her. I just had to order stencil film for exposure resist and therefore there on A4 film remained vacant places, time was short and so I decided to search complete solutions of board for FT232RL. In Internet was found a couple of amateur circuit that can download, but the soul liked picture from Sparkfun I thought to sit down and draw a board like it, but clicking on the link Found for Eagle project which could be downloaded. Downloading I edited it on a existing element base 0805 and changed package of tantalum capacitor.

I made a board by my own technology

Went out the next device
