USB Slave to USB Slave

Started by p_dubinsky April 11, 2005

I hope this doesn't sound as stupid to you as it does to me. I've been
asked to interface with a device that used to have a simple RS232
interface and has been "improved" to USB. Of course, in the USB world
the device is the slave and the assumed Windoze PC at the other end of
the wire is assumed to be the master with the "USB drivers" loaded.

Originally, at the other end of the wire there used to be a BX24 with
it's trusty RS232 com1. Now, I'd still like to use the BX24 (or the
BX24P) but I have no idea of a simple way to connect a simple TTL
processor to a USB slave device.

Any ideas out there?

I'm stumped.
Paul

Thanks, Don. There certainly is some interesting stuff there. I'll let you
know how I make out.

Thx,
Paul
