I have a very specific problem. I need to communicate between two computers (Intel NUC and a Jetson TX2, both running linux to be specific). I cannot use wireless, and the ethernet ports are occupied by other devices. I need a very simple low bandwidth communication between those two computers.
So my plan is to make a small pcb with two FT232RL chips, and connect them like this: Computer 1 -> USB -> FT232RL <=> FT232RL <- USB <- Computer 2. I assume that this would work like a serial port between the computers.
Will this work? Is this a good solution, or is there something better?
