USB Serial Monitor Lite


It's a very simple USB-Serial Monitor.

* I tested CDC-ACM with Arduino UNO, MEGA, mbed.
test report : NXP LPC1769(thanks to mark)

FAQ
Q: Why my phone/tablet(Android 3.1 or upper) is incompatible?
A: Maybe, your phone/tablet does not have a USB Host API feature.

Q: But my phone/tablet supports a USB thumb drive, USB mouse and USB keyboard.
A: It's not a USB Host API. It's a Linux USB Host. Please check to see if your phone/tablet have a USB Host API.

Q: Can I get binary or source code?
A: Yes, It's open source. Please check my github page.

Q: How much max output current is?
A: smartphone type : 150 - 180mA(Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2)
tablet type : 400mA - 500mA? (ICONIA A500, Nexus 7)

Thanks Hey there, I just wanted to let you know that this is the first app that I've managed to get communicating with my Adafruit Flora which is based on the ATmega32u4. Is there an app that would allow me to read back from the arduino? Thanks!
