Is anyone working on a Visioneer serial driver for their Paperport ix
scanner keyboard? I assume it uses the same protocol as their other serial
I started reverse engineering it yesterday and found some setbacks.
Apparently, the scanner keyboard uses CTS,DSR,RNG,DCD to send nybbles of
data. The CPU strobes DTR,RTS to send command data and request new
nybbles. The RXD,TXD aren't even hooked up!
This had made it very difficult to trace via serial line monitor because
the Win95 driver code cycles the DTR too quickly for my line monitor to
detect cleanly. I've been mainly using SoftIce on the Win95 to piece
together the protocol.
This scanner keyboard is a great device, I just want a native interface and
one that works with Linux ;)
