Re: serial communication

Thanks for replying. Im getting an analog voltage in and converting it to digital. I want to store the digital number and send it at a later stage.

You can store your digital data in the PIC's EEPROM then, send it to the PC whenever you want.

Yes, you will have to use a MAX232 to convert the TTL level of the PIC to +-10 of the Serial port.

This is the connection between the MAX232, the PC and, the PIC
