RS232 / Serial to Notehub using only the notecard?


I was wondering if there is a way to configure the notecard to work as a data-relay for instruments outputting rs232 / uart data. Many instruments output telegram style data (NMEA or similar), and just putting a notcard on and caching a bunch of these and syncing now and then would make it very easy to make these instruments work remotely. Bonus points for two-way communications. Would be very easy to do with an MCU in probably less than 20 lines of code, but it would be even greater if I could just skip the MCU and the notecard supported this.

Hi @gauteh,

Another great feature request! There is interest in something like this internally, so it’s been logged for a potential future feature.
