SerialFTDI TTL-232 USB Cable Compatibility

Does the SerialFTDI TTL-232 USB Cable https://www.adafruit.com/product/70 is compatible with the Adafruit Bluefruit LE UART Friend - Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
https://www.adafruit.com/product/2479

Thanks

The pinouts are different.

The Serial Cable can plug directly to the header on an FTDI Friend:

but the signals are arranged differently on the BLE UART Friend. You can use jumpers to connect the appropriate signals, but it isn't a straight-across connection.

CTS connects to CTS and RTS connects to RTS. Other than that, it looks good.
