How fast are you wanting to transfer data?, a 9600 baud serial connection will transfer 960 readings a second - and you can easily run PIC's (even in software) much faster than that. 115,000 baud is a standard serial port speed, that would move 11,500 reading a second.RichardKhoo said:hasan,
i'm also trying to do communication between my pic16f877A with parallel port using VB.
can you please enlighten me ?
as i've read thru some website, there are 3 types of parallel port. SPP,EPP and ECP.
i got 8 outputs from my PIC to be send into the computer
or u can email me also.. my email is [email protected]
If you dont need a very fast connection then it's best to use a serial connection. It uses only 2 pins of your pic wich is a lot better then 8 or more for parallel transfer.RichardKhoo said:nigel,
hhmm... i'm getting blur...
i don't need a very fast connection...
actually i also don't know about it..
but at least, i need to communicate with the computer first
then only i will know what is it all about...
