SerialCouple V2.0 PCBs are in
This is based on the previous SerialCouple board, but instead of coming out to an FTDI serial port, it comes out to a DE-9 RS-232 port. You might call this a legacy SerialCouple board, for interfacing with devices stuff in the last century peripheral-wise *coughiPodcough*. Like always, ITead did a meh-decent job on the PCBs, and the two freebie boards were amusing:
some documentation on the project (ppt warning), and after an email with the designer, this is a breakout board for toy boats used for a master course in mechatronics for maritime engineering. You control azipods to position the boat, which is an understandablely difficult problem. Interesting, but useless to me without the boats.
So in short, please please please people, use URLs in your silk when swapping stuff on ITead.
