I just started Gadgetering last week. I have a plan for a rather large device, where I will need about 8 type ‘U’ Ports. Now I have a Hydra main board that has 4 ports and AFAIK there is no possiblity to extend the amount of ‘U’ ports.
So I was thinking, why not use two mainboards and link them together?
I saw in the catalog a module called USB-Serial Module (Part # SRUSB-GM-287). The description says that it is intended for data transfer between device and PC, but my guess is that I can also use it to connect two boards together, can anybody please confirm if this is indeed possible? So one acting as host and the other as client.
Or if anybody has any better solution to my problem of wanting to us 8 ‘U’ type ports.
I could simply order some more hardware and test, but I though maybe posting this simple question could be a quicker and cheaper way to find out.
