I wanted to use the device as a socket for the Xbee on my Breadboard.
I could send/receive Data to/from my µC when I had the Explorer connected to my PC over USB. But when I wanted to run it independent I couldn’t receive any characters on the µC anymore. Checking the Rx line with an oscilloscope showed that the RX line had a constant Voltage and didn’t send out the charachters that were recieved(The RSSI LED was on when I was typing on the other side but not the RX LED). Yet I saw signals on the line when the explorer was connected via USB.
I had connections to the 5V, GND, DIN and DOUT pins.
Anybody got any ideas why this doesn’t work? I guess its something about the FT232. How could I work around this?
