Reading serial values from Arduino Microcontroller over USB
Hello dear Amiga Coders! I really like the Arduino Microcontroller and own an Arduino UNO Board. As a first little project I read temperature values with TMP36 sensors. The Arduino sends these values over serial USB connection to PC. Under Linux this is rellay easy cause there's a driver to emulate USB as a normal serial port device. I really like to write a GUI on my SAM440 so that I can display the values an AMIGA too :-) Now my question is: Can someone of you help me getting started how to implement this over USB on Amiga OS 4.1 U 5 on a SAM440ep? Or can I use the serial device instead of USB. And if so how? I would really appreciate any tips from you! Best regards and lots of fun with AMIGA !!!

Hi fastbit66. Seems no one
Hi fastbit66. Seems no one has programmed USB. :-) How much digging have you done so far? First I'd locate the source to the Linux driver to see how complicated it is to write a USB serial driver. It seems silly to need to write a serial driver for a serial bus but it is a complcated protocol with devices hanging off a device tree. :-) Then, in the SDK there are APIs you can read up on for USB that implement devices for access. On os4depot.net search for USB and you will find a USB guide to writing drives as well as some drivers with source codes. Perhaps not exactly what you are writing for but a good starting point. Finally in the SDK you will find example code for USB drivers. I Think the end result would be something along the lines of a usbserial.device. Good luck! :-D

@hypex: Hey !! :-) Thanx a
@hypex: Hey !! :-) Thanx a lot for your reply ! I by myself was a bit surprised that it seems nobody could give a hint. So thanx again :-)) Yepp - I think tht's the way I will go. Uhh that will be interesting - I never wrote a driver before ;-) Hope I can achieve the goal... Best regards andi

@fastbit66 No problem. I
@fastbit66 No problem. I just looked into your problem for a short while to see what came up. :-) So how is it going. Any futher? Still doing research?
