AW: Still Problems with AJB Remote

Hi all,

# -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht (Jörg) -----
# Can't you power the Atmel with 3.3V as well?

Of course I could, but my other signals that I'm emitting need a 5V level.

In fact there are two npn transistors to have the correct logic.

I think there are some !

If I measure into teh NOT connected remote pin of my Studio, I have 3.3V
-> There is a pull-up

If I do the same with 2 Recorders, I measure 0V.
-> So there is NO pull-up and the input has to be driven actively.

I did, but unfortunately I'm not able to locate the serial port and its
Maybe you could give me a hint ?

# The universal bidirectional solution is that circuit with a MOSFET
# inbetween, preventing the voltage to rise above 3.3V. I once
# posted that, am too lazy to dig it out right now.

Any idea which month/year or subject ?
