Product Features

This adapter cable will allow you to connect serial devices to the SBC's USB port.
Product Description

The USB to Serial Converter Cable is ideal for connecting RS232 devices to any of the PhidgetSBC's USB ports.

The SBC will automatically recognize the Converter when it is plugged in and will create a serial port for it.

Be aware that the 3400 and any serial devices connected to it are not "Phidgets devices" and therefore cannot be accessed or controlled by the Phidgets' APIs. Using this product requires a working knowledge of Linux.

This revision of the 3400 has a different casing on the serial plug and a different colored cable, but is functionally the same as the previous revision.
Warning: This device is not compatible with Windows 8.


NOTE: Please install these drivers before plugging the device into your computer. If it doesn't detect these drivers when plugged in, it will install incorrect ones. Click here to read how to fix the drivers if this happens.
