I would like to do a project using the Arduino Mega. I would like to be able to test a USB to RS232 cable that has a FTDI embedded. I was thinking of sending a USB message like "HELLO" from the Arduino Mega to the cable and retrieving the message through a UART port on the Arduino Mega. I was thinking of using the usb host shield 2.0.
I would like to have your opinion on the feasibility and if it is feasible, does anyone already have something like this or is there an example code that I can use as a basis?
Thank you in advance for your help.
