Abstract

During daily work a lot of people working with computers must solve the problem of adopting different serial communication devices. Most of the connections need a customized serial connection cable. The smart serial adapter avoids additional work and costs for searching, building and looking up serial wire configurations. Currently there exists fixed wire connections which demand for every different application a dedicated serial connection cable or connection box equipped with DIP-switches which allow only a ON/OFF behavior.
