I'm using an atmega328.Which microcontroller? Does it have a UART built in? Most applications like this use a uC with a UART on board. The UART signals interface to a PC's RS232 port using something like a MAX232 to do the level shifting.
You could also use a microcontroller with built in USB capability or use something like an FTDI USB-UART interface chip to interface the uC's UART with USB.
Ah.. the magic chip - in the DIP package made of unobtainium. I don't know any of those. But, having problems with the UART on board the '328 shouldn't be a deterrent. Everyone here finishes all kinds of things that they didn't understand when they started them.I'm using an atmega328.
It does have uart but I have to program it etc and its proving difficult. I was looking for a chip that does something along the lines of input my data into one pin and connect a uart to usb cabel on another pin and the data should flow to the USB pprt
Something as simple as a shift register? Synchronous or asynchronous? Byte at a time? 20 KHz? 19,200 is a standard baud rate for asynchronous UARTs. Would that do?Hi,
I have some data that I want to transmit to a PC. I've been using a microcontroller writing c etc. However I was wondering does anybody know if there is such a chip that exists that would do this for me ?.
i.e take pulses and transmit to the pc
