Thread: preferred modern I/O
face BY : Kathy Quinlan email (remove spam text)

Hi Doug,

I would say Ethernet or USB, depends on what data rates etc, I have helped
in the design at work using 10Mbit, but would hate to design 100Mbit (the
crystal Lan chip does not go that high, and even then we had a FPGA in
between the Uc and the Lan chip) USB is supported under UNIX and Windows (ok
unless you need to use dos, as I am not sure of a dos based driver)

RS 232 seems to be dead, more and more is moving to USB and Firewire, I am
having trouble finding laptops with one RS 232 port :o( another option is to
use the PS2 port to communicate with the PIC and then use Ethernet to
communicate with the other PC ?
