Take note of the items I use before reading along:
- USB Type B male to USB Type A male Cable
- Computer to read from the device or write to the device
- Device to read from or program
I program and read this device very often for testing purposes and have to stand in tight spaces for quite a while while doing these tasks with the device. My goal is to come up with a device that I can wirelessly transfer the serial data from the device to my computer (vice versa) without having a cable in between. I'd be able to sit at my desk in the next room and do these tasks more comfortably because sometimes it can take hours to complete.
This device is not programmed with personal or company information and cannot be accessed without proprietary software and 2 factory authentication when accessing the device anyway so im not worried about malicious snooping from others.
Things to accomplish with the device: * I want it to be as slim as possible. I hope to introduce a small ABS case from a 3d printer to make it no bigger than an arduino nano. * It has to have a range of about 20 feet minimum. I don't ever need to be farther than that anyway. * Being able to transmit and receive on both sides of the data transfer is the most important so I can read and write.
Lastly, I'm not wanting anyone to "figure it out for me". Rather I just need to get push in the right direction. If anyone has any recommendations I would be glad to hear them. I'm very comfortable with soldering and creating things in eagle if that's the route I need to go. Thanks again!
