Unfortunately, with newer M1 macs and BigSur you are limited to FTDI USB serial dongles since there’s no new prolific driver AFAIK.  At least the FTDI driver is included out of the box.

I’ve had really good luck when I’ve needed slow/odd speeds with the Comtrol RPS series of Ethernet connected serial boxes.
