Lasershark Board SPI or uart connection
« on: January 27, 2020, 11:51:43 AM »
hello

 I'm Benni from Germany. I ordered a lasershark board from you in 2019. the board runs under windows and linux with the test file. with the usb driver I don't get a serial port connection. now my question can i directly access the board via the spi or uart port. to use an alternative to creation workshop. greeting benni

Hello Benni,

Your question is very similar to one that was just asked (I thought you were the same person) ;D

There is no code to use the SPI or UART port. Those were broken out for those who would like to make their own custom firmware.

The USB Interface is a custom bulk/isochronous interface vs. a serial port for efficiency and safety reasons.
