Description Attachments

The SparkFun 3.3V FTDI Starter Kit is a must-have for anyone getting started with FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. This kit is designed to seamlessly work with official Arduino and cloned 3.3V Arduino boards, as well as a range of general serial applications. The standout feature of this kit is the DTR pin, which allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new sketch is downloaded. This eliminates the need to manually hit the reset button, making it a user-friendly feature. The board is designed to auto-reset any Arduino board with a reset pin connected to a 6-pin connector.

The SparkFun FTDI Basic Breakout, included in this kit, was engineered to reduce Arduino development costs while increasing ease of use. The auto-reset feature is particularly beneficial for our Arduino Pro and LilyPad boards, which utilise this type of connector.

The kit also comes with a USB 2.0 type B to Mini-B 5-pin black cable.

Included in this kit:

  • 1x SparkFun FTDI Basic Breakout - 3.3V
  • 1x USB Mini-B Cable - 15.24cm


  • Schematic
  • Eagle Files
  • USB to serial UART Boards Hookup Guide
  • How to Install FTDI Drivers
