Data loggers


I have read the article on data loggers and I want to build one. However I am not really sure how to connect my microcontroller up with  a USB cable to my computer. some pictures or something would be nice.

Thanks. :)

Heres a link on using HyperTerminal to hook up a PIC16F84 to your computer via a serial port.

A USB connection, i think, is much more difficult. I would recommend going with serial, although if USB is totally needed, then there are tutorials for that aswell. Remember - google is your friend :)

It would be handy to know which type of MCU you plan on using.

I guessing that I will be useing a pic16f870, or a pic16f84.

there are easy to use serial-to-usb adapters available for ~$15 :P
