One end of the cable has a 3.5mm stereo jack plug which connects to the radio. The other end has a USB plug which connects to the PC's USB port. The cable contains a USB to serial converter, so the radio appears as a COM port on the PC. Length approx 1.5m/5ft (if required, you can add a USB extension cable up to a total of 5m long).
Our standard cable uses the SiLabs CP2102 USB to serial chipset.
This premium version uses the FTDI FT232RL chipset.
Both work with Windows up to version 10.
For more detailed information please read our USB chipset information page.
This cable is suitable for all Icom radios that use a 3.5mm stereo (TRS) jack (OPC-478 cable) for programming and Alinco radios that use ERW-4C (serial) or ERW-7 (USB) cables.
