Can the Professional Development Board (Serial) for the STAMP be used with a USB to serial adapter?
Can the Professional Development Board (Serial, Rev.A) for the Propeller be used with a USB to serial adapter?
If so, are there recommended adapters?
I'm buying a new PC which will probably come with USB 3.0 ports. Do these adapters work with USB 3.0 ports?
This new machine will probably also come with Windows 8 Pro? Does the software for the STAMP and Propeller work with Windows 8 Pro? I just installed an Arduino type board (Arno from olympiasystems) for my grandson; it required turning off the Windows 8 driver signing but then it worked OK.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
