Postby weihong » Sun Oct 11, 2009 1:05 am

I have my VB program and i wan to link it to the SC16A through COM port.
But cant because dun hav the DLL file.
Can i have the GUI that cytron provide in VB form?
Or is the GUI produced by the VB or other programming tools?
What is the way to communicate to the SC16A through PC USB port???

There is no need for DLL file as the USB will become a virtual COM port. In VB or other programming language should have open COM or similar function. and communication is exactly the same as explained in the User's Manual. I think the User's Manual did mention that the USB will be come a virtual COM port.

Do you have the sample source code that implemented the GUI that comes together with the SC16A?
What kind of value to pass to com port that tyhe sc16a will understand?
Thanks for the help!

The same value or command explained in SC16A User's Manual should be sent in order to control it. No different at all, one is using microcontroller UART, another is using PC COM port.
