How compatible are all of these as I would find it beneficial to actually use a mini-usb on this and seems to cost a bit less than the cable. Now what I’m worried about is to make sure that I only feed 5v from one source. So need to make sure to disable all other power supplies before connecting.
As I see, the breakout would be facing down connected as is, but that should be an easy soldering fix…
A total noob to the whole Arduino world, so please forgive silly questions.
From what I can tell, that uses the same chip, so it will be compatible. (Our own store carries a similar board, the FTDI Friend, which is basically the same but with the addition of a few configuration options.)
