Hi, I been working on my FYP and came across this problem. I need converting a Serial data into parallel which i get from RS232. As we all know that the UART chip is the one which converts the serial - parallel and parallel to serial.
But this is already built on my target board (Serial Port which is already on the board). But the output from RS232 should be an input to one more board which i am designing. I am trying to keep the other board as simple possible, since i am not electronic expert.
According to my research on what I have done it looks like, I need one more UART on my user designed board. And to make that UART chip to work I need a micro controller as well. Which i think is getting complicated.
I might me wrong here, please correct me if i am wrong. I need converting this Serial data to parallel. Any simple circuits or any idea on how to convert that to 8-bit parallel data?
