I'm just reading all the docs at the moment. It is a bit of a monster isnt it!
I havent ordered one yet, I just want to use it to talk to an 8051, since RS232 is almost a thing of the past.
A couple of things I did notice
1) it needs to be soldered down to an square inch or so of copper as a heatsink
2) You need a java compiler to comunicated to the serial port. see webMBO.doc.
quote Writing a Java applet to communicate with a serial device attached to the Device Server is very straightforward. However, you will need to be familiar with Java programming, and need a Java compiler. /quote
Another venture started.... java. any reommmendations on which complier?
