Seeking inexpensive devices
(serial and ethernet) to measure temperature. The serial device
could be a USB device that presents itself as a virtual COM port
New! USB Device with VCP
DLP-TEMP-G 3-Channel Data/Temperature Acquisition Board for
$25.00 (includes one temperature sensor): www.dlpdesign.com/usb/temp.shtml
This device works well and is intended to be the first device
supported by this project.
Most modern operating systems have FTDI drivers installed by default but here are the VCP drivers if you need them: http://ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Here are several interesting USB devices but they may not
provide a VCP nor an open protocol. Please contact me if you
know of any similar products that have those features.
