Godzilla comms board is operational...

After a few false starts this morning I got the comms card for Godzilla working. It is echoing properly both with hyperterminal and the VB.NET serial comms test programme.

The board takes on 5v power directly from the power supply and does not have any 12v current moving on the board.

Connections with the rest of the system are via 2 pin screw terminals. No power is carried in the comms cable. The PC serial port connection is wired directly into the board.

Now I can start building up a stepper controller with confidence that I have something to connect it to. :-)
