Sneak peek at the FUIM3

The FUIM2 is something of a strange beast requiring a special USB to RS-232 cable. However, FMA has done a great job with the FUIM3 interface cable that will become available at some point in the future.

The FUIM3 sports a standard USB cable with a mini-B connector on one end. If you're like me you already have one to four of these cables plugged into your PC for everything from cameras to cell phones so this is a great improvement. Also an improvement, though not easy to see, is that the USB to RS-232 conversion is now being done by an FTDI chip which means vastly improved driver support.

Now keep in mind that the FUIM2 still will work perfectly well with the PL8, but if you're like me then you'll be thrilled to get your hands on the FUIM3.
