Pain relief for all the divers with newer notebook computers. These are no longer equipped with serial com ports. To overcome this disadvantage one had to buy a USB-to-serial converter cable. Now there is the integrated USB solution. A completely new schematic using the FTDI FT232BM USB-to-UART controller is reducing in cables and connectors. It is compatible with the original Suunto® Dive Manager logbook software.
You can find the schematics and the BOM as well as the layout (Gerber) data in the download & links area. There you also find a link to download the free FTDI USB drivers.
