PL2303 Chipset wiki
The PL2303 USB-to-Serial Bridge Controller is a low cost and high-performance single-chip solution.
It provides a simple and easy way to use bridge/connectivity between the Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Serial Port interface.
With the advantage of the USB port, users have the capability to utilize the peripheral with the serial port interface in an easy-to-use environment such as plug and play & hot swap function.
This single chip is designed for ideal connections to Cellular Phone, Digital Camera, Modems or ISDN terminal adapters with over 1Mbps data transfer rate.
The PL2303 device and software drivers are capable of providing a no-firmware-change feature that enables USB interface to be transparent to serial port peripherals with minimum modifications.
PL2303 cable Application:
1.Smart I/O: High-Speed and Super-Speed total solutions for three product categories: UART/RS232/Serial/Printer, Storage and Connectivity.
2.Energy Management: The energy industry from power generation to power consumption is undergoing a green revolution. Green appliances need monitoring and power management, as better measurement and management leads to better conservation and waste reduction. This chipset offers a range of cutting-edge SoC solutions providing high accuracy, high integration, and simplified design while giving manufacturers a highly reliable solution at a lower BOM cost.
3.Mixed Mode: Mixed-mode technology integrates analog and digital circuits into a single IC solution. It combines features from both technologies and provides high stability and easy control.
Products include magnetic sensors, Hall effect sensors, motion recognition, motion sensing, bio-sensing, and others. Prolific Technology also integrates high-sensitivity Hall sensor and driver IC in developing new-generation high-efficiency Smart Fan Driver IC.
