Control your Bus Pirate with an Android Tablet
N3mesys successfully controlled the Bus Pirate with an Android Tablet using the USB Serial Monitor app. This software lets Android enabled devices connect to FTDI USB-to-serial chips. The FT232RL and FT230X ICs are supported, so this works with older Arduinos and lots of other stuff with the common USB-to-serial chip.
The only thing you need is a little app from the Google AppStore that is called < Android USB Serial Monitor > (the lite version works fine for me). I don’t know if it works with other tablets with USB-Host function but my Archos works very very well. I have only tested the PWM and Servo test functionality and I have to say its so nice to have the great abilitys of the wonderful BusPirate on the go.
