  1. Oo.. You need to send some kind of code to the UART, so it'll perform as what you want. I though that part is called program the UART. Anyway, do you know anything about PC16550D?
  2. Hi out there.. Currently i need a serial in parallel out circuit in order to operate my circuit behind that. I need a circuit that is able to invert the incoming serial signal and remove the start and stop bits. I am using a MAX232 and PC16550D UART to do so. The problem i face is how to program that UART. ??? Anyway, i come across this website. http://www.qsl.net/yo5ofh/hobby%20circuits/computer_circuits.htm I found something interesting about the circuit. Can this circuit operate as what i want? I need some confirmation. ;D Thanks!!!
  3. Hi.. Currently i am at the stage of shifting serial bits into parallel bits. I am using an UART PC16550D to do the shifting. I have a few doubts. Besides taking care of the serial input pin and parallel output pins, what other pins should i included? ??? Here is a diagram of the chip. http://www.beyondlogic.org/serial/serial.htm#8 Thanks! ;D
  4. Cost forbid me from doing so. So i use software to replace those. This includes storing those ASCII symbols.
  5. Hi out there... ;) I have something to ask about my programming stuff. Currently i am using visual basic 6.0 to do my programming. What i want is like that: ::) Base on an ASCII character, my program will able to find the pattern that represent the character and display it on the dot matrix array. How am i going to store all the patterns for each of the ASCII character? ??? Eg. for the character 'A', the equivalent display pattern is [c1,b7,77,b7,c1]. *Note: all display pattern is in hex. How am i going to retreive the pattern for each ASCII character? ??? Eg. for the character 'A', the display pattern [c1,b7,77,b7,c1] will be send out to the dot matrix array. Thanks!! 8)
  6. Oops...sorry ante..i am not questioning about your datasheet... Sorry... Anyway..i think MAX232 from texas and maxim will work the same. Thanks alot~!!
  7. Is Texas Max232 requirement same as Maxim Max232?? ??? Anyway..thanks alot~!! :D
  8. Yup, what you said is what i wish to do with my serial data. At first i want to use a 8-bit serial shift register to do the shifting, but it is quite tedious and complicated due to the timing issue. So now i plan to go for UART. I think that is cheaper than microcontroller. ;D
  9. Hi... i need to request a datasheet for a MAX232 datasheet from MAXIM company. THanks~!!!! ;D
  10. HI there... Currently i need to shift my serial data input from computer to parallel output data. At the same time, i need to have the start and stop bits being removed. So is there any suitable way to do so? Probably a UART? Is there any of that will perform what i need in the cheapest possible way? Thanks~!!! ;D
  11. Hie...thanks for the datasheet...thanks alot.. ;D
  12. Hi.. i would like to request for the datasheet of a 8x5 dot matrix array. Following is the features of this device: - 8 rolls and 5 columns of LEDs - height = around 6 cm - width = around 3.8 cm - thickness = around 0.8 cm - there are some codes printed behind the dot matrix array.....LTP2158A......01-P2158A. Thanks a lot !!! ;D
  13. Hie out there~! Currently im working on my final semester project called [glow=red,2,300]Programmable Dot Matrix Display System[/glow]. I hope i can get some guidiance from here. My project will not include any microcontroller and PICs. :-\ Basically, my thing will work like this: User key in something in a textfile, then the messages will be send out thru a serial port to the external circuit for displaying purposes. At the same time, user is able to control the number of repetition and the frequency of the displayed characters from an interfacing program. Now i need some information on the driver chip that drives the column of the 8x8 dot matrix array. Is there any driver chips that is suitable for those arrays?? ??? Thanks!! :D
