Just a simple python sketch to test Silicon Labs CP2104.
The CP2104 is a USB to UART bridge. This allows serial communication over USB. When the device is attached to a USB port, it will appear as a serial interface. In my case
What do I do?
To test this device, connect the TX pin of the CP2104 to the RX pin of a sparkfun serLCD backpack driving an LCD display. Connect the CP2104 to the computer via USB verify that it appears as
This python sketch will send keypress characters via serial communication to be rendered on the LCD. You will need the pySerial and Curses modules installed.
Some python and a serLCD to get familiar with @siliconlabs CP2104 USB bridge.— R̸y̧an͝ ͝Ol҉es (@rho_) December 30, 2016
