photo resistor computer input
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:11:27 AM »
Hi

I was wondering if i was to hook a photo resistor to my mcu mother board, would there be a way to get sensor readings back to my computer without using bluetooth or wireless, more preferably a phisical connection between the board and the computer.

thanks, Joker94

If the board has uart capability you could print to hyperterminal?

no it does not have uart capabilities but i can look into addin something.

So if i had uart i could get the feedback onto my laptop through hyperterminal. If so is there any tutorials or sources out there that can explain how.
