• USB programming cable for Icom & Alinco radios - OPC-478u equivalent
This handy cable allows you to program your Icom transceiver from your computer.

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.

We also produce a premium version using the FTDI FT232RL chipset (listed separately).

Both work with all current versions of Windows.

For more detailed information please read our USB chipset information page.

 Programming software not included. Please check the availability of suitable software for your model of radio and that it will work with USB.

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.
