Topic: quick question about USB elm327 (Read 2493 times) previous topic - next topic


I'm looking for a cheap elm327 and that looks like it's gonna be a USB one like this. Even though its usb, does it have a serial output that I can interface easily with the arduino? Say if I cut off the end of the cord, will there be wires that can interface easily with it? Thanks.


It is unlikely that you can use the "USB" signals although I am not positive but, if you can take the box apart and get to the ELM chip rx, tx then you might be able to do something. I have found information in the past that suggested that the ELM chip is based on a PIC chip.

Look at this - http://www.obdsol.com/stn1110/

It's fully ELM compatible and has TTL-level serial for interfacing to an Arduino/ATMega.
They also give samples.

I have used these and it's as simple as it gets to interface with the Arduino.
