i've just got a little question about UART to USB converters.
I would like to read out a GPS receiver from "u-blox". The receiver has got a USB cable to communicate with.
It also gets its voltage supply via the USB cable. Reading the receiver via a Laptop is not an issue at all but now i need to read the data via
This is a converter I'am thinking about to buy:http://www.ebay.de/itm/USB-2-0-to-TTL-UART-6PIN-Module-Serial-Converter-CP2102-STC-PRGMR-Dupond-cable-/251159448719?pt=Elektromechanische_Bauelemente&hash=item3a7a450c8f
My question is:
Does it matter from which side (USB or UART) the supply voltage is going on to a converter?
I'll have to supply the voltage from the arduino so that the GPS receiver gets its voltage via the USB side.
I hope you guys are able to understand my question because my english used to be better =)
Thanks for replies!
