USB to Serial Adapter

by znorris on Sat Jun 26, 2010 12:52 pm

You say in the 'pager scanner' video that because you have to bit bang that USB to Serial conversion will not be an option. However, the serial to USB device you sell states that it should be good with bit-bang devices. Can you clarify?

to program a chip, the speed can be as slow as you like - just takes longer
to read from the pager, the speed must be as fast at the pager is sending data, thus USB converters cant do it fast enough
