Hi all, I am now working with a concept of a RS485-WLAN-converter. I have searched in the internet and found a solution that may be implementable. The idea is to use EIA-485 transceiver, AVR ATmega microcontroller and an ethernet controller.
Because this is just the first step and only a concept, what I understand is the most difficulties are the programming of the microcontroller and maybe the ethernet controller. The RS485 is the specification for serial port and therefore I think what I should focus on is how to transform the data of the RS485 specification to the WLAN data type. The TCP/IP protocol should also be considered. I think it may be a very complicated task for the programming.
I have just a few experience in this field and I don't know if someone of you have some experience in this field and could give me some ideas on this concept. Thank you guys!
