Phototransistors interfacing with a serial port

So I really don't have too much experience with interfacing stuff and PCs (read: none) and I have a question. If I was to wire up about 5 phototransistors in series, all with a laser aimed at all of them, with the anode hooked up to TxD, and the cathode hooked up to RxD, and I had a program sending 500 bits to it per second, and checking for response.. will it basically be able to detect if one of the lasers are broken? Thanks!

Attiny 2313 & Serial Port

Is it possible, using just an Attiny 2313, to exchange data with a computer via serial -- or do I need one of those RS232 chips?Theoretically, I think I can, using the digital IOs, dispite its lack of efficiency, but there may be some problem with that...Sending is the main part that I'm not quite confident about ;-)

Serial to USB cable?

I have a serial cable for my Garmin Etrex, one side a serial plug the other goes to my GPSR. I am about to get rid of my desktop and only use my laptops but I don't have a serial port on either. Knowing this the serial cable is useless unless I spend another $40 - $50 on a "Serial to USB Converter". So, I cut it to see what and how many wires are inside of it and found only three. I was thinking of making my own cable but I don't understand the difference between the two ports. I saw the GPS 'ible here and it's no help unless you don't have the serial cable already... Here are my questions:1. As long as I connect the proper data in, data out and ground to the USB cable shouldn't it work?2. Are serial ports and USB ports that much different?I read a lot on the pfrancs website and i noticed a few of the connectors looked like they may have had USB cables hooked to them. I've searched and searched but came up with squat! If you have a really good understanding about USB and serial ports can you please help me or direct me to someone who can? Thanks in advance!

PIC Programmer Com Port?

Hello, yesterday, I bought a PIC16F877A Microcontroller and This programmer. I also installed PicPro USB. I am using the serial to usb cable that came with it. The programmer has a location of  Port_#0001.Hub_#0009 in device manager. Now when I open PicPro USB and set it to  port 1, It gives me an error saying: There appears to be a problem accessing the COM port. I cant seem to find whats wrong. [Edit] I think that It is connected to port 24 (hence its name: Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM24) ) and the problem with PicPro USB is that it can only have 1 digit port numbers, how do I fix that? Thanks.

CP2101 USB to serial IC

Sparkfun makes an excellent breakout board for Silicon Laboratories' CP2101 IC. It looks like this board could be used to connect a PC to your microprocessor through a USB port without having to use a MAX232 IC to convert the TTL voltage levels to the serial port voltage levels and then a USB to serial converter. Drivers are available so the PC sees the CP2101 as a COM port so hyper-terminal could be used to communicate with the microP. The 'S' in USB stands for serial, it should would be nice to connect a PC to a microP using only one piece of hardware. Am I right about the CP2101 providing this ability?Any opinions would be appreciated.

Serial/Console Interface for Video Brochure?

Hello All!  I recently acquired one of those cheap video brochures (the kind that loops a video on full volume until you want to dash it against a wall)... Anyways, I couldn't resist the urge to hack with it, so I pulled the enclosure apart to expose the electronics. Inside I found a magnetic switch, a USB mini connector with all pins wired (two power/two data), a motherboard with three ICs and a scattering of other components, and a rechargeable battery (seems to be LiPo) all wired up to a 5.5" display. I plugged the usb to my computer and it mounted as a drive labeled "MediaPlayer". Inside was the original video file that I replaced with one of my own videos in the same format. It now plays my video with sound. Where I am stumped is with the circuit board. I have not found any markings on the board itself, however it has some pins around the edge to which the switch and speaker were connected to (I'm guessing these may be GPIOs.....). There is also an unpopulated four pin header (to the right of the display connector) that looks like it may possibly be for another USB port. There are also four solderable connections (on the bottom of the left side of the board) that are labeled GND, HRP, HRL, and DET... I wasn't able to find any meaning for those, but is it possible to establish communication through that? Last but not least, the three ICs on the board seem to be a CPU, and two flash chips. The markings on the center one (which I'm assuming is the CPU) are: F1 E200 F8148DA 19H1  The second IC, to the right of the "CPU" is marked: hynix 812A HY5DU121622CTP-D43 KOR N7EAX553Q2 - also engraved with the letters JHY The final IC, left of the "CPU" is marked: hynix KOR HY27UF082G2M TPCB 604A M8SD53321 According to Google, the E200 refers to the all winner E200 SoC that supports UART, SPI and TWI... It also says that it runs OS Melis 2.0... I would like to hack into this system if possible and/or find a way to interface the LCD through SPI for my Pi Zero... Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks! I included a couple of High Res photos to show the PCB (the display ribbon cable has been removed to show the third IC).
