I am attempting to recreate the project detailed here: http://amiga.robsmithdev.co.uk/instructions .
The important part is that a USB FTDI adaptor with the CTS pin broken out is required, and that adaptor will be connected directly to an Arduino. Problem: I don't have such an adaptor. I do, however, have a normal hardware serial port on my computer.
From what I understand, there is nothing stopping me from using this serial port in place of the specced FTDI adaptor, aside from the differing serial signal levels (my computer is likely to have +/-12v, whereas the Arduino is expecting +/-5v.)
So, how can I convert the signal level while maintaining signal integrity at a high serial baudrate (2mbaud is required)?
