RE: [tracker2] Adapters
- Chipset is Prolific. Not sure about the OS X drivers - I'll check on that when I get back from DCC. Gotta get packed up right now.. my flight leaves in about 3 hours.As for integrated USB support, I *do* have my ARM-based project that I'm still working on that has native USB. Much more flexible than using a converter chip, and cheaper. Way more trouble for me, of course, but as a side benefit I now know way more than I ever wanted to about USB and the CDC ACM. For now I've only implemented a single virtual com port, but there's no reason it couldn't implement multiple ports, or show up as a bulk storage device (it has an SD/MMC slot) or anything else I want it to do.Maybe next year. =]Scott

any idea which chipset it uses and/or if there are Mac OS X drivers

heh. I said the same thing when someone mentioned adding USB to a
hypothetical "new" D7 - if they did, it would be implemented by adding
a usb to serial chipset, then we couldn't tie it to anything else with
232, plus we'd have the driver issue to contend with.
