My very scarce German tells me that "5 V-TTL" translates in English to "5V-TTL" .
But I found this one:
Sorry the link is in german but maybe you can tell from the look?
from the from the description, does roughly the same... will it work or is it something
Compare with point #10 of read-me-first:
You want 3.3V TTL, NOT 5V TTL.
These are seemingly suitable (BUT do check with the seller):
This one has several types listed:
- TTL-232R-3V3 (TTL-232R mit 3,3V IOs) good
- TTL-232R-AJ (Audio Jack connector, 5V IOs) bad
- TTL-232R-3V3-AJ (Audio Jack connector, 3.3V IOs) good
- TTL-232R-PCB (Populated PCB from the TTL-232R USB connector, 5V IOs) bad
- TTL-232R-3V3-PCB (Populated PCB from the TTL-232R-3V3 USB connector, 3V3 IOs) good
- TTL-232R-WE (No connector at serial end, 5V IOs) bad
- TTL-232R-3V3-WE (No connector at serial end, 3.3V IOs)good
This may help you (together with the read-me-first) understand the issue:
Thanks for posting that list. Is it safe to say those adapters will work or have been tested to work? I have to assume this adapter will work since it is advertised to work on seagates?
THis one looks very similar to the one you had in your list but from US which is where I am from.
Can I ask you if you had any experience with these adapters below. So far I cannot get anything from CTRL +Z. I have to assume by CTRL +z you mean press the CTRL button followed by Z button or both at the same time. I even tried with the + key that made no difference!! I am assuming the + means Plus and not to depress that key as well?
THis has both RS232 and TTL. Switched jumpers so I am in TTL mode.
Bus pirate has the UHART protocol but I don't think it has TTL
I am not 100% sure if I have to supply a 3.3volt to the VCC on this one or not or if it generates a 3.3 volts from the RS232 port?
I cannot get the above 4 adapters to get me into a prompt after CTR: +Z
I am going to try them on my Linksys Router WRT to make sure they are working correctly. Loopback is not enough proof for me.
Some past Ebay purchases I made over the year and going to test later.
Thanks for taking the time to review my post and sorry for the Ebay links. This was the only way for me to show you the devices I already have.
