Serial Voltage Level Converter - Arduino
Do you have a 5v FTDI serial adapter and a 3.3v Arduino or Raspberry Pi? You know that you can't plug the adapter directly into the 3.3v microcontroller right but did you know that it's quite possible to build a simple voltage level converter to solve the problem?
I bought a 3.3v Arduino Pro Mini compatible board for a project but I made the mistake of ordering the wrong FTDI serial adapter. I got a 5v unit instead of a 3.3v one but I needed to use it quickly so I used 3 resistors to convert the levels so that I could use FTDI adapter with the 3.3v microcontroller. I thought that you might find this little converter board useful too More...
