Cygnal Integrated Products Inc. has announced the availability of its CP2101 USB-to-UART bridge chip that provides USB 2.0 full speed to 921.6kBaud UART data transfer in a 5-by-5mm MLF package with no external components required.

Danny Allred, Director of Product Marketing, said, "The CP2101 requires no external crystal, voltage regulator, or EEPROM, providing the smallest available PCB footprint for a USB to UART bridge. It is an ideal solution for quickly updating legacy UART, RS-232, and RS485 systems with USB connectivity."

The CP2101 is available for $2.68 in quantities of 10,000, and the CP2101EK evaluation kit, priced at $49, is a complete USB to RS-232 solution that includes a PCB (with schematics and BOM), cables, and royalty free Virtual COM Port device drivers.
