This page is confusing. Too high a pictures to words ratio (e.g. not enough description).

Questions:

  • What is that picture showing under ' Why it is easy to gain serial access on the LS Pro'?
  • I've managed to work out this is a USB-RS232 bridge chip, but we seem to end up with USB connectors at both ends. Huh?
  • Where does this connect on the LS Pro?
  • Why are you using a bridge chip if you want to talk RS232 to the LS Pro? Most PC's still have an RS232 port. Use that and you don't need a chip, just some wire.

+ Any chance of a circuit diagram?
