Digital Output Devices

For an application running on your PC to control your transceiver or antenna switch, physical connections are required. The are typically accomplished using any of three digital output devices commonly found on PCs:

  1. a serial port's data output signal (TxD)

  2. a serial port's modem control output signals (DTR or RTS)

  3. a parallel port's data and control signals
