Using Nano with Serial Link to emulate the XDP


If you have a spare Nano and the Serial Link, you essentially also have our XDP hardware. Using these two devices you can fool any of our programs that use the XDP hardware into thinking that a real XDP is present. To use the Nano and Serial Link as an XDP, do the following:

1. Connect the Serial Link to your USB port.
2. Connect one end of a JR female-female cable to the Serial Link, noting the proper polarity.
2. Place the jumper on the binding port of the Nano.
3. Plug the other end of the JR female-female into output port 6 on the Nano, noting the proper polarity. The LED will rapidly flash.
4. After a second or so of the LED rapidly flashing, remove the jumper that is on the binding port. The LED on the Nano will now be solid red.
5. Place the jumper back on the binding port (and leave it on). The LED will rapidly flash 10 times and then turn solid red.

That's it! Now your Serial Link/Nano combination is a XDP! This of course is not permanent. Removing power will return the devices back to their original purpose.
