  1. Using the FT232 with Python

    In this article I will try to document how to with with the FT232H using Python on FreeBSD. I will be using the Adafruit FT232H breakout board.

    Note that since I’m using FreeBSD, the library provided by FTDI doesn’t work. However, the library provided by Adafruit was written for Python 2, and doesn’t work with Python 3. I tried tinkering with it a bit to get it to work with Python 3, but that did not work out. In the end, I went with pyftdi since it doesn’t require a native library and it just works.
