Do I need a RS232 Shield

Hello TinyCLR Community!

I have been testing out a simple little program which sends and receives information using UART (COM2). Now I want to test it using my computer. Can I just connect the pins on the Domino board to the Serial port of the computer, or do I need to convert to TTL levels? Is this what the RS232 shield does?

You are required to convert RS232 to TTL…through the RS232 shield or anything similar

Great! Man, i haven’t been this excited about a project in a long time!
