Connecting DSC to PC via USB-UART FTDI


#1

Hi! I’d like to connect my DSC to my PC via USB-UART FTDI I bought. The only problem I got was that the servo shield doesn’t get enough voltage because the USB-UART adapter can only provide 5 V or 3.3 V. Any ideas how could I solve this problem?

Dear Spaghettifan,

you can simply add your FTDI Adapter to the DSC FTDI Interface and supply the 5V voltage from the FTDI to the DSC. If you have an FTDI Adapter with an original chip you should be able to supply a current of around 300 - 500mAh which should be more than enough for the DSC.

Kind regards
