Just popping in

Dear Amiga friends !

I have a SAM440 Board running with Amiga 4.1 Update 2.
I want to develop a small application with a Reaction GUI that is able to receive a simple byte stream from a serial Multimeter device.
Now my question is: Does somenone of you know if there is a USB to serial adapter that can be operated with Amiga OS4.1 ?

Thanx in advance !

What's wrong with the in-build serial of the SAM?

Was working on it, unless he has restarted then he isn't working on one.

The PL2303 is the chipset to go for. There is source out in the wild but not for our USB stack (see eg. Poseidon PL2303 driver+source at http://thylacine.boing.net/updates.html)

I've tried adapting it, and fixing/finishing rwo's driver but I didn't get anywhere as I know next to nothing about writing USB hardware drivers.

I have a little USB-Serial device here I wanted to have a play around with, but the USB side of things stopped that.

I would also like to have a USB-to-serial adapter working with the SAM.

The SAM built-in serial port doesn't support hardware handshaking.

1. If the built-in port is used for something else like a dialup modem, unplugging and replugging the port is a pain.

2. The SAM serial port is not a standard serial port, it is only 4 wires and lacks hardware data flow control.

3. USB adapter would allow multiple connections with simple pluggin and unplugging. I would love to see adapter USB driver too.

Ah, thanks for that - I didn't knew. I'm wondering whether my graphics tablet will work with my SAM, at the moment it is connected to the serial port of my PegasosII (or sometimes to my 040/A2000)...
