Well, to be honest I wouldn’t be able to avoid the temptation to at least try so thank you for those links. I bought the cable mentioned in the links (TTL-232RG-VREG1V8-WE).
I have a friend who is very good with a soldering iron and has the equipment, but he does not live anywhere near me, so I will be going the connector route as you suggest. However, I notice that the recommended receptacle housing (78172-0003) and
receptacle crimp terminal (78172-0410) have a different gauge size (28-30) from the ttl to usb cable (24). Will this present any problems (again, I have almost no experience with electronics)?
