The MCP2200 is a new USB to serial converter chip from Microchip. This breakout board brings all the pins to bread-board friendly headers.
- USB CDC virtual serial port interface
- Secondary HID configuration interface
- Up to 8 additional IO
- 256bytes user EEPROM
- TX/RX indicator LEDs
- All pins to bread-board friendly header
The MCP2200 is actually just a PIC 18F14K50 programmed with a firmware, but it's slightly less expensive than the PIC alone.
