'[EE]: Palm Pilot Interface'
2002\01\14@070311 by Russell McMahon

A Google search reveals a zillion Palm Pilot references but very few seem to
relate to hardware level access.
Has anyone got information on -

- The interface connector specification and protocols for the Palm M105?
   (Also other versions but the 105 is what I have).

- There are several PS/2 keyboard interfaces available - I am interested in
being able to provide the equivalent of external keyboard access.
   (eg from a PC or other processor

- Also information on use of the IR port would be of value

Has anyone here investigated microprocessor interface with a Palm - the
opportunities seem significant.



regards

I am in the process of connecting a PICF876 & modem CMX469 to a PalmV. At
the moment I am having a problem understanding how to implement a CRC 16 bit
checksum calculations in my vb script.

I found a good site for this http://www.iland.net/~jhaase/vbcrc/index.html
and trying to make sense of it. When I get there I will post something.

In the mean time if you can make sense of it will certainly help me.

I purchased the Palm V Travel Kit which comes with a straight through serial
cable and connected my Palm V to the serial port on the micro. Add a dash of
free terminal software from {download.com | tucows.com | palmgear.com}, simmer
while stirring until golden brown and within minutes you'll have a ready to use
Palm V interface. To create a more customized dish, one can season to taste with
the free Palm developer tools. For those with a penchant for heat, an IrDa
interface chip from {microchip.com | etc...} can be substituted for the serial
cable, however I haven't actually tested this variant. YMMV.

If you want to venture beyond the serial port there is a lot of info in the
developer docs. I haven't had time to wade through all of it so I'm not sure if
it has what you want. I've seen pinout diagrams for the Palm's on the net
before, but I can't remember where. There are also several university sponsored
palm-bot projects that should have lots of info available. I'm pretty sure the
MIT project provided complete schematics and instructions.

Is this the same thing as using the standard cradle?  (What else
could it be?)  Any hints for starter entertainment I can try
with a terminal program?  ("Type this....see this!)

Yup, the hotsync cradle will work just as well. Although its not always as
convenient. I use the pTelnet program and I think I got it from download.com,
but I can't remember. Its a basic little program, but it works and the price was
right ($0).

Its easy to play with. After syncing a terminal program, just leave the palm in
its cradle and fire up hyperterminal (assuming you're using windows) and the
terminal program on the palm. Make sure all of the port setting are correct and
then you should be able to enter text on your palm and see it in hyperterminal,
and vice versa.

If you already have a micro that sends text over a serial line try hooking it to
the hotsync cradle (you'll probably need a gender changer). It should just work
if all the port settings are right.
