If you are looking for this file, on my pc it is located at C: Proudly powered by WordPress. Click image for PDF of schematic: Now I better understand why there are no such converters existing.

Sending data from a microcontroller is a pretty common requirement in a lot of the projects I work on. Leave a Reply Cancel reply. Hello all readers of the international Elektor magazine!
It turns out that for the VirtualSerial to work in windows you have to install drivers for usv-rs232. Kick things off by filling out the form below.

An alternative to this is to have the uC communicate directly via usb with the computer. I now connect a GPS to my target.
LUFA Library: Operating System Drivers
I am using my EMA module with a voltage adaptation circuit raising the level of its RX output from 2. Using a device with a USB connection seems like it would be very complex and probably not the way to go. If you push the Enter key, the Carriage-Return character will be sent and when received back the cursor will move back to the start adapte the line.
Blog Flickr Resources GitHub. Correct me if I am wrong, but this is what I have concluded so far. USB ports are a lot more common than serial ports these days, so when people talk about a USB-to-serial adapter they are usually in the opposite situation from what you describe: The following links point to third-party ports of the LUFA codebase to other architectures than those targeted by the official release.
This joystick example would read input from certain pins and send a certain string over usb. With a commercial license, you receive: By default the EM output serial data at bauds.
LUFA Library: Serial USART Peripheral Driver (AVR8)
Hi, I cannot give you too much guidance on what you are doing but, you might want to consider using a MAX chip or a serial adapter like our Pololu a Serial Adapter. Elastic Sheep Because elasticdog was already taken.
The converter I got has a FTDI chip and it does have drivers included, but I want to use it without the drivers because I plan to connect it to an Arduino and a serial printer, and not a computer, so there is no operating system for the drivers.
Defining the serial command set and defining the errors and status information that get reported back to the computer over serial would ussb-rs232 a lot of work. The one that I chose is the atmega16u2 because it was pretty cheap and it was used the arduino uno as the usb-serial converter for the board. If you enjoy my work, please consider a small adapetr to help my future open source efforts by clicking the image below: Usb rs converter without drivers Robotics and electronics discussion.
The PCB schematic and board files as well as the modified VirtualSerial example joystick-less is all available for download here. Here are some pics of the board: I will look into that.
After all of the joystick butchering the example finally compiled — I plugged in the board and it was recognised as a usb device. Now I better understand why there are no such converters existing.
This has the advantage of involving very little code overhead for both the uC and the computer.
The library is currently in a stable release, suitable for download and incorporation into user projects for both host and device modes. As far as I have been able to find out this is not possible, since the USB end need drivers the scale has no operating system or driversis that correct? The next problem was that this virtual serial example was based around a seperate usb joystick example.
Thanks for the information DavidEGrayson.
