Friend wanted to give me AVR programmer board for me to try to learn but it use serial RS232 connector, but i don't have it on my labtop.
I was told centain USB to serial converter don't work. The best is to build your own using FTDI chip. I wish i knew how to do it.
But is there on the market that i can buy that is ready made USB to RS232 (Real or latest UART) or even PCMCIA to RS232 (Real or latest UART), eeerrr....cheap?
That way, i can get started learning the AVR immediately.

Any help would be appreciated.

PS : I saw eBay sell a lot of those USB/PCMCIA to serial RS232 adapter really cheap. Which one will work best?

I have tested other model of USB2RS232 with a pic programmer and with a sattelite box and in both cases the software doesn't run so I will not waste my money on it. Buy a PCI with RS232. Regards

Thanks for the reply.
But i have laptop, don't have PCI, accept PCMCIA or cardbus they call it.

Any recommendation for PCMCIA or Cardbus for Serial that works for both PIC and AVR?

USB base on FTDI.

I like to program AVR and PIC board out there in the future.

Advice/Recommendation? Anyone?
