go and see : www.ftdichip.com

they have a chip named FT8U232AM that is a chip that makes a bridge between USB and RS232.... thus you can use this chip and see it as the COM5 on your PC and send it in USB mode.. It will be then translate into RS232..

Go and see the site for more explanation !

Re: USB to SERIAL

I agree. Downloading picture files from a digital camera via RS-232 is very slow. In practice more or less unuseable.

Note: A PCI USB board is EUR10, not EUR100. At least where I live...

Hi,

I have try a converter with Prolofic chip who does't work with flux control signal of my modem.

Re: USB to SERIAL

Hi all;
got one question on this USB to RS232 thing:
when I'm using a VCP driver, how can my software know that the USB device is disconnected?

Re: USB to SERIAL

The TUSB3410 cannot be used because it is a bridge from USB host to RS232.. and it cannot act as a host by itself. That is,

USB host(computer)-->TUSB--->Your device is OK

but not,

RS232 (computer) ----> TUSB--->USB device.

an usb host is necessary at any one side of tusb.
