Caution - a lot of them are counterfeit on Amazon.

If that one definitely works in your own experience then it is good. Otherwise, not. FTDI had put out a driver update a few years ago that disabled the fakes.

It's not, I have two working on the Flex as we speak.  On for the SteppIR and one for the SPE amp, but then again I suffer from delusions of adequacy so...

Want to add to this thread as I am in the process of doing this. Dont forget to get a gender changer. The above links are male serial connections and so is the SteppIR.   So wont mate up without additional hardware :)
