I’d like to use my Fez Panda II to communicate with a device with the RS232 protocol. To be more precise its my A/V Amp.
I was wondering if this would do the trick: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/133. I also wonder how many of these i can use as i see that the panda has 4 com ports? I know the arduino had a kind of software serial library, is something like that available for the Panda II too? And how many would i be able to hook up once i get my fez touch, fez connect shields plugged in.
Since i am quite new to this micro controllers things, i don’t know anything about UART, SPI and whatnot, but i don’t let that get into my way of using them ;).
