USB CP2102 to Xtend 900 1W Transciever

Post by YellowFlower » Fri Mar 22, 2013 4:20 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to mate the two so I can communicate via the USB on my laptop.
currently I'm running the entire system at 3.3V to get over the fact at 1W transmission the USB port wont provide enough energy.

I can get the CP2102 to transmit in a loop. (however whenever i unplug the TX/RX cables and plug them back in it appears to require the hyperterminal to restart before it will transmit in a loop again. is there some handshaking necessary with this Chip that isn't with a standard RS232?)

Otherwise I pretty much can't get them to link up.
anyone having any ideas? should i hold the RTS/CTS pins in some set configuration?
