  • I have a question and I would like to know your opinion about it.

    I want to connect my MCU whose pins are only tolerant to 3.3v to an RS-232 device.

    From what I understand, I could connect my MCU (3.3v logic) to the driver pins, but feed (Vcc) the driver to 5.0v, right? Even if I feed the drive to 5.0v can I connect it to the MCU (3.3v logic)?

    The datasheet says on page 8: “This series is ideal for + 3.3V-only systems, mixed + 3.3V to + 5.5V systems, or + 5.0V-only systems that require true RS-232 performance. ”

    But I can not understand how the driver can distinguish if the output to the MCU should be 5v or 3.3v.

    Thanks for your help … and I apologize in advance, if it is obvious. :S

  • Great. SparkFun is awesome! Thank you.

  • Yes, but…Is it opensource? Where can I find it? I’ve been checked the Git repository, but without luck.

  • It’s really cool. What about the bootloader? Is it necessary upload a previous bootloader to the ATSAMD21G18? Thanks!

No public wish lists :(
