Thanks for the reply Dave.
I have in fact bought an eval. board from
Sparkfun (just received) and am
figuring out how to wire it to my Gumstix
breakout gs. It wants 2.8v logic
level signals (not 3.3v, the manufacturer
says they care) and flow control
among some other things . I was curious how
the Gumstix designers were
attacking the problem since they are going down a
different path (probably
better since I'm an admitted Linux beginner). I
hope to get some info as to
how they are doing it.
I don't know if you remember, but we once exchanged
some messages about
adding serial ports with the Phillips SC16IS740 Bridge
chip; I will
eventually need more serial ports for my application and this
like a good way to do it. You had bought some and were looking at
the software. Any progress?
By the way, your impressive
contributions to this list, I'm sure, are
appreciated by all.
