How Do I Connect To Ezb Using Usb

I have 3 ezb boards in my robot. I would like to connect to 1 of them to my laptop and EZB builder using USB. Is there a tutorial for video somewhere on this forum showing how to use USB instead of Bluetooth?

I am hoping that the ttl usb board that comes with the elechouse wifi for programming the wifi can also be used for usb.

I want one of my ez-b boards to be connected directly to the computer (but bluetooth will be ok id not) and the other to use wifi.

Yes, the USB to TTL adapter that comes with the WiFi module will work with the EZ-B.

Any usb to ttl adpter will work and any manufacture ,just install the drivers and set baud rate and port setting in ez-builder

I bought over 30 for my roomba projects i sell and all work perfect

Well, thanks for all the insight. I went ahead and ordered the Sparkfun FTDI Basic Breakout - 5V TTL to USB adaptor pointed to above by Niek. Sounds like this will work just fine.

@Niek,

Does the Sparkfun FTDI Breakout board use this cable? I can not be sure if it is a mini-B or what.


USB cable


Thanks,
