'[EE]: SPI to RS232 Converter'

Friends,

I am in need of an SPI to RS232 converter. I have not been able
to find this type of device. Does anybody know of a place where
I can buy these? Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Steve

You could just program a PIC that has both SPI and UART to do this.  Moving
the data from one place to the other is easy.  The tricky part will be
decisions you have to make on how to "convert" between the two streams.  For
example, RS232 has two independent streams, while SPI always transfers a
byte in each direction each time.  You also have to think about flow
control, if or how you want to handle buffering, etc.

Olin,

>>You could just program a PIC that has both SPI and UART to do this.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. After looking all
over the place I had the feeling this was what I was going to have to do.
Another project ....... but this could be useful for debugging SPI devices
with a PC. I guess this is the route I will take.

Thanks again!!

Best regards,
Steve

Steve,


Look at the Maxim 3110 (http://www.maxim-ic.com), it is a spi controlled
UART with an 8 byte FIFO.
