RS232 (TTY)

RS232 Serial Interface that I built to work on various electronics that had tty access.

I built this Serial TTY device to access the boot loader on my WRT54G router. All I needed to do was solder a header onto the motherboard and then telnet into the device. It’s also useful on other electronics that use the RS232 protocol.
