I bought a Roostick from here, I believe this uses the FTDI chip. Most recently I bought an Arduino parts kit to learn about the Arduino board here. One of the ways this board can be programmed is using an FTDI cable available here.
I believe the Roostick and the FTDI cable use the same chip for the USB to UART conversion. The Roostick has a breakout pins for Gnd, R_DD, R_TXD, R_RXD and 15.6V. My question is, if I could use the roostick to program the Ardunio directly in my Breadboard kit. I am guessing I would have to hook up the Gnds together and swap the R_TXD and R_RXD between the Rootstick and the Ardunio. but the 15.6 Volts on the roostick bother me.
If I hook this up, would this fry my chip?
