* Say you want something like a Python "dictionary" or a Java "map" where you
* are storing (String key, Object value) pairs. It's tempting to do it using
* object properties in JavaScript, since
* obj['key'] = value
* works so conveniently. However, say you want to be able to have some properties

wmhilton / ArduinoSerialBypass.ino
Created Jul 19, 2013
Use your Arduino as a direct USB to serial converter! Tested on an Arduino Duemilanove. Probably 3.3V TTL but worked for communicating with my supposedly 5V TTL HerkuleX servo at 115200 baud.

* Arduino Serial Bypass - use an Arduino as a dumb USB 2 Serial Converter
* This code makes the Arduino not interfere with pins 0 and 1
* which are connected to RX and TX on the FTDI chip. This allows
* the data coming from the FTDI USB 2 Serial chip to flow directly
* to another device. Since RX and TX are labeled from the Arduino's
* point of view, don't cross the wires, but plug the device's
* RX wire into the RX pin 0 and the TX wire into the TX pin 0.
