Best USB to Serial for Arduino Mega?

by fablau on Wed Sep 22, 2021 4:29 pm

Hello.

I'd need to purchase an USB to Serial cable to be used with an Arduino Mega. I need to send serial data from my Mac to an Arduino Mega.

Which one of the following cables is best for my case:

https://www.adafruit.com/product/4364
https://www.adafruit.com/product/70

Eager to have your advice on this.

Thank you.

Fab.

They sound comparible. The only real difference I see is that https://www.adafruit.com/product/70 is USB-A and 3' long, while https://www.adafruit.com/product/4364 is USB-C and 1m long.

That's great, thank you very much. I wasn't really sure that the TTL voltage was compatible with the Mega. I think I'll get the longer one.

Thanks again very much!

Yes, they both state that they work with 3.3v or 5v logic.
