I need a UART to USB converter to communicate from my microcontroller to my PC and vise versa. I see two popular IC choices for this, one is the PL2303 and other is CP2102. Can you help me identify the key difference between and which one I should choose for my application?
I am using an 8-bit microcontroller operating on 3.3V and my baud rate is 9600. The Tx and Rx pin on MCU is only 3.3V compatible so I need the converter to handle 3.3V
