I've built a UART-RS232 converter based on max232 and it works well... but not for what I need :) According to Maxim's datasheet the RS232 side signal voltage should be theoretically +/-10v (5v * 2), ...
I am scratching my head to figure out a possible soloution for this scenario: I am developing a simple application using TI MSP430 microcontroller. The microcontrol part is powered by 2xAA batteries. ...
Product Link I am connecting this to an Arduino. (once Arduino programmed I removed the USB connector as it shares the serial comms with Pin0&1) RS232<->Arduino VCC <-> 5V GND <-> GND ...
