Book review: 'Serial Port Complete'
Author: JT Smith
Jan Axelson is the author of 'Embedded Ethernet and Internet Complete' and 'USB Mass Storage' and other books in the area of embedded systems and devices. In her latest book she turns her attention to the trusty old serial port. Now some might think that the serial port is a bit of legacy technology that's all but disappeared from the PC, but that's far from the truth. Serial ports are alive and well in the guise of virtual COM ports on USB devices, in embedded systems and micro-controllers and, still, as real live COM ports on PCs and servers.
