In the technical specification of NetDuino Mini, pins 1 to 4 are mentioned as RS232 pins, specifically pins 1 and 2 for TX and RX. Does this imply that I can get RS232 connection by simply connecting these pins to corresponding pins on a RS232 cable?
I assume for pins 11 and 12 (UART1 TX, RX) a TTL/RS232 adapter is required to convert TTL to RS232 and vice versa. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, is NetDunio Mini a discontinued product? I see many small and useful applications using this product, and it would be unfortunate, if it is discontinued.
