Serial Breakout Box

Started by Rolf February 4, 2015
Looking for an inexpensive (less that $100) serial RS232 breakout box.
Can set BAUD, etc and then receive serial data.
needs to have some sort of data bit output; TTL or ?.  up to 8 bits.

nice to be able to send simple data byte back.
A kit is fine.

what's out there?


I already have USB breakout boxes so that is not needed.

If you were to type in "RS232 IO board" you'd most likely find something. http://www.pencomdesign.com/2ch_relay_io.htm That is just an example, many more.. Jamie

get an arduino or a board from mbed.org. they are quite easy to program and there ais plenty of sample code out there. Bye Jack -- Yoda of Borg am I! Assimilated shall you be! Futile resistance is, hmm?

raspberry pi + usb-to-serial raspberry pi, arduino, or basic stamp + MAX232 RPI I/O is 3.3V CMOS, others are 5V CMOS -- umop apisdn
