Since I do a lot of breadboard development I decided that I need a FTDI cable. I got the idea from Sparkfun but ordering 1 piece from the States to EU is a bit expansive and since I allready had a few FT232RL at home, I did the whole thing from the start.

It’s basicly just the chip, two signal led’s with resistors, three capacitors and usb connector. I used B-type since I have a lot of this cables and Arduino uses it (and I still have about 10 on my desk). I managed to make a single-side PCB with only 1 top-wire. If anyone needs, eagle files are found here.
