're [EE] Report: FT232RL USB-Serial Converter Chip'
I think the FT232R has the CP2102 beat:
1. The FT232R can supply an OUTPUT from the clock for use
of a local uP. The clock can be 6, 12, or 24 Mhz- or all 3.
2. The FT232R can provide any custom-divisable baud rate; the
CP2102 has a good variety but not to the extent of the FT232R.
3. While the utility of bit-bang mode is still up in the air, the FT232R
can provide 3 different versions.
4. The FT232R optionally can sink/source 12mA from its drive pins,
sometimes an important consideration, especially the fast clocks.
5. The TSSOP28 is better to handle than the QFN, meaning the
FT232RL is more hobbyist- friendly. I've yet to sucessfully mount
a QFN part.
On the other hand, the CP2102 has a 3V voltage regulator, the
BUT, thanks for pointing the CP2102 out. Good call.

I believe it does - the FT232R's 3V3OUT pin can source up to 50 mA.
