The 1-Port USB to Null Modem RS232 DB9 Serial DCE Adapter Cable with FTDI from StarTech converts an available USB 1.1 or 2.0 port into an RS232 null modem serial DB9 port, solving DCE/DTE conflicts directly without requiring additional cross-wired serial cables or adapters.

This compact adapter features COM retention, allowing the same COM port value to automatically be re-assigned to the port if the cable is disconnected and re-connected to the host computer or if the system is rebooted. The integrated FTDI chipset supports additional customization, advanced features and compatibility not necessarily offered by other solutions.
