I am trying to communicate to a RevEd (PicAxe) OLED board:
http://www.picaxe.com/Hardware/Add-on-Modules/Budget-Serial-OLED-Module/

Which appears to idle high, much like RS-232.

1. Are the Serial protocols that Arduino uses spelled out anywhere?
2. Is there a way to set these kinds of "modes" in SoftSerial, or any other library?

(PS: I know I can re-write the firmware in the OLED, which may be my next option.)

The datasheet of the ATmega328 is quite informative in these questions.

The SoftwareSerial object has the ability to invert the signal.

Thanks!
The extra SoftwareSerial parameter should be added to the docs on this site.

can you point me to that manual? My Google-foo wasn't sufficient to find it, I could only find the details listed on the hardware page.

Thanks, I did not catch that it is was the processor data sheet and not the board.
