I need some info on serial ports.
i know that serial ports takes in 1 byte and send it 1 bit at a time.
i can understand the situation when a modem is connected.
But now suppose my serial port is connected to a camera or microphone, which keeps sending it analog data
What does the serial port do to handle this analog data,
does it have an inbuilt a-d converter?
I am a layman, so could u explain this to me in very simple terms.
