Home / Hardware - USB to 4-Pin Din


For DriveWire users, Scott Adams (likely not the Dilbert Scott Adams or the adventure Scott Adams) contributes parts he has found for making a USB to 4-Pin DIN cable that works with DriveWire:

The parts number is FTDI USB-RS232-WE-1800-BT_5.0 and a 4-pin DIN plug, solderable.

https://www.amazon.com/FTDI-USB-RS232-WE-1800-BT-5-0-Cable-RS232-Serial/dp/B01HI9CXG4

To connect this the FTDI cable wires yellow, orange, and black are used. Yellow is connected to the DIN pin 4, orange is connected to DIN pin 2, and black is connected to DIN pin 3.

I have tested this in Linux and Windows and it works fine to 115,200 kpbs.
