Working and non working USB to Serial adapters

Postby maniades » Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:53 pm

As I have dicovered recently, not all serial adapters work ok with nistune and our wideband units. So I think it would be a nice idea to report which adapters work ok and which don't.

Please, report what adapters you have tried (working adaptors are worthier than non working, as this can be nice for people that is going to buy one). Please, provide any detail you can... and even a buying link or a link to the product site would be awesome.

To start with, I have one on each category:

Working:
- Ugreen Serial to USB adapter (FTDI chipset, http://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B00QUZY ... ge_o01_s00). Seems to be working ok.

Non working:
- Ugreen Serial to USB adapter (PL2303 chiset, http://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B00QUZY ... ge_o05_s00). Works for some seconds, and then it throws some frame errors.

Anything generic with counterfeit prolific chipset (most of those on ebay). They have PL part numbers. There are FTDI counterfeits floating around also

Aten USB adaptor I use has genuine prolfiic and works fine.
