buy don't build

Digikey 768-1016-ND

Another great example of buy don't build is this RS232-TTL to USB cable from FTDI.

We use a serial port for debug output, and had this goofy little rs232 level converter board that was usually strung into a serial->usb adapter.

Now we can put a small connector on this cable and have a nice professional looking debug cable and no dangling PCB precariously strung into the laptop.
