For a project, I need to connect more than one device to an Arduino through a serial port with hardware flow control (RTS/CTS).
Sparkfun used to make breakout boards for the SC16IS750, but this product is discontinued and I can't find any place to order it. There are also plenty of ICs doing what I need, but I am not keen on soldering SMD components and I cannot find any products coming in e.g. an old fashioned DIP package.
Does someone know about an available breakout board or a DIP packages I2C to UART bridge? Since the device will be battery powered, I would prefer a dedicated low-power circuit instead of a programmed microcontroller as suggested by majenko.
