Here are various posts I've modified the tag on. It's an incredibly broad tag that should be used with great care so as to avoid becoming totally meaningless (if not already). Vent disagreement here.


1 Answer 1

  • Need bin or hex file for Pic 16F648A Serial LCD
    • Good to get rid of (especially since it's a parallel interface!).
    • Think it needs other tags, like and . (May even qualify for the fiendish tag, but let's not go there.) What do you think?

  • RFID Reader coding
    • We never heard back as to whether this was via USB or RS232('ish).
  • Small "FTDI"-like chip
    • Don't think this needs any mention of either UART or serial, though I think the is slightly more relevant, as an FTDI is really a USB-to-RS232 or USB-to-FIFO device. This post is really about voltage conversion () and surface-mount package selection (doesn't quality for though, in my opinion, as it's not generally about surface mount, but a subset of it).
  • How can I control 128 (or more) solenoids?
    • I've never thought of multiplexing as including serial, but I think this makes sense, especially when considering time-domain multiplexing -- this is basically serial windows. Would have recommended both and , but just makes sense with this clarification. Will it make sense to others? Can a wiki help?
  • \$\begingroup\$ That FTDI chips have a synchronous serial engine is a red herring. That question is clearly about UART functionality, and only UART. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ That first question is about serial - about as much as it is about LCDs. He want's a canned program ROM for a serial->LCD converter. \$\endgroup\$
