More Arduino Stuff...

HI all...
(Apologies for any typos.)

To add to Neo's Arduino subject matter I have decided to upload this in ".zip" format.
Ignore "*.info" files these are AMIGA icons only and also the "HAM" drawer as these are photos in ancient AMIGA HAM modes.
I have noticed that there are current converters to RS232 for USB Arduinos and this was my incarnation 11 years ago for the Diecimila Board. It should still work so long as "RXD" and "TXD" are the same pinouts as my board and it looks as though they are.

This gives everyone, even with old HW, a chance to have fun with Arduino.

The serial circuit is a modification of Arduino's original design on their very first Arduinos from yesteryear.
Irrespective of any copyrights in my stuff I categorically state on this post that you can do with any info as you please, this is a CC0, Public Domain issue.

NOTE: You can only use one mode at any one time, so ensure that the USB is disconnected when RS232 is being used and vice-versa.

Hopefully the ZIP file uploads...

Enjoy, along with Neo's examples...


Incorrect zipfile replaced...

Merry Christmas!

I have so much Arduino-related orders on the way from AliExpress, it should be a crime!

If I knew Arduino was this much fun, I would have started years ago!

OBTW, today bought the SIM5360E 3G Shield


Yesterday, I bought a RIGOL DS1054Z 50MHz Digital Oscilloscope 4 analog channels 50MHz bandwidth.


Currently, I have 45 outstanding open orders related to Arduino electronics with AliExpress. Lucky for me most are just a few bucks !!!

When the mail arrives (can take a few weeks to over a month for each to arrive from China), I hook'em up and start testing each component. Too fun!

Apologies to everyone...

The circuit GIF image is incorrect this is the correct one:
(I will correct the zipfile and reload...)

Hi Neo...

Here is another little snippet aimed at WinUAE, the AMIGA emulator, I created also around 2008-9, if you are interested...
(It is written in ACE Basic Compiler (C)David Benn of which I am a moderator on his ML, but of which is almost completely silent now.)

FYI, for those lazy to build a circuit, folks can buy a serial to RS232 module which facilitates RS232 to the Arduino serial pin for $0.58 (as of the date of this post) and free shipping (to some, not all countries) from AliExpress these days:
