What can we do with a UC00A besides Serial to USB converter? Let’s start from fulfilling my day dreams. I always wanted to have a device other than mouse and keyboard to control my PC. Okay, it’s not a big deal if we use a microcontroller to commnunicate with the PC through serial interface by using a UC00A. However that’s not what we want to achieve here. We want to do it by using UC00A alone!
Arduino Pro Mini is a compact but powerful Arduino board. Being designed with the idea to minimize the cost, the on-board USB to UART chip is taken out. leaving the board with pure ATmega microcontroller, voltage regulator and reset button.
