USB Serial Interface for Android

There are many Serial Data Devices that means those that use the RS232 (old mouse port). USB is now the standard interface in most computers and embedded devices. Many mini embedded sensors and devices come with High Speed Serial Interfaces.

USB Serial Interface for Android

This page lists solutions and methods to get These Devices talking with your computer. The focus will be HandHeld Computers made of the Android OS. This way you can get your hand on the Real World thru USB and Serial. USB to parallel also helps when you want to control a Relay or Solenoid Array. Wireless Interfaces also are a good Solution with Networking.

FTDI Chips and Driver Solutions

USB TTL Serial Cables The USB TTL Serial cables are a range of USB to serial converter cables which provide connectivity between USB and serial UART interfaces. A range of cables are available offering connectivity at 5V, 3.3V or user specified signal levels with various connector interfaces.

USB Serial Terminal Lite

Smart phones serial terminal program. USB equipment using Silicon Laboratories CP210X, FTDI FT232 and Prolific PL2303, CDC/ACM UART to USB Bridge chips can be used to connect to your smart phone.

Zigbee Chip TI CC2531(USB-Enabled SOC Solution for 2.4-GHz IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee App) can be used also. Provides the same functionality and the PC for serial communication terminal.

Powerful Devices in small sizes are possible with ARM based devices. Handhelds, Netbooks, Robots and Small Machinery can integrate an ARM based SBC with Touchscreen at moderate cost and low energy burden.

If you want to scale higher in some dedicated embedded solution for a specific need, you also need the full power of a PC, Then an ARM based system with Linux OS, can be Tailored to a perfect fit.


This page documents an ARM9 single board computer designed for image acquisition and processing. It's an open implementation, which means schematics and layout files are freely available. The platform runs Linux/ARM.
