USB – Serial Convertor

Hey guys ,

I’ve had some trouble getting a proper usb serial convertor to connect my MSP430g2553.The problem i faced was the drivers for win 7 .After a lil research i found a way to make our own convertor. We can use FT232r serial usb convertor by cots around 130 – 180 Rs. .The circuit for the application is as shown.Power is drawn from usb itself.

For the Ferrite bead we can use a cable with the ferrite bead itself.Here is pic of the convertor i have used.

USB cable with Ferrite bead is shown above.
