Hi guys...

Well I`m pi$$ing around with MikeOS ATM and it is absolutely
brill` fun. :)

I successfully got an Analogue to Digital Converter working
with it yesterday using the parallel port which then made
me think......

My lateral thinking head now...... ;o)

MikeOS comes with a simple terminal program to read/write
to the COM1 port and I wondered if Arduino could be read
and written to too for very basic multi-I/O.

I have a sneaking suspicion it WILL be able to.
My next adventure... :D

Hmmm, Arduino on MikeOS eh!

So grab MikeOS, have some real, old time, fun and
experimentation and use that child in your head to its
fullest and best advantage... :D

Hi all...

Well it is easily possible to use the Arduino Diecimila Board
with MikeOS.

All that is required is a simple two transistor add-on to use
it in direct serial mode and ignore the USB section.

Although the builtin terminal program in MikeOS is limited
this will display ASCII characters WRT the analogue input
voltages... :)

Now for direct SERIAL access... >:)
