ft232 price

Check out www.ftdichip.com for schematics, dataheets and samples.

You can buy through the suppliers listed under support on the FTDI website - I've bought in low volume from www.alphamicro.net in the UK before.

ft232bm buy

Last time I bought any would have been Oct/Nov last year, just as the BM varient came out. I think in low volume (I bought 5) at £4.30 each but they are definately about £5 in low volumes.

If you can still get hold of them it may be worth getting the AM varient, the differences are only really the number of external components you need, and if you have the extra components in stock you should be able to save some money...

ft232bm sample

The BM has less external components because they integrated part of the reset circuit into the BM, we had awful trouble getting the reset to work correctly on the AM chips, with the BM chips I've not had a single problem...

...yeah, I think that they are approximately £5 from alpha...
