Product Overview

The Virtual To Virtual serial port product allows pairs of serial ports to be connected. Data written to one Virtual Serial Port (TX Data) may be immediatly read from the other Virtual Serial Port as receive data (RX Data), and visa versa. Similarly modem control lines (such as RTS/CTS, DSR/DTR, etc) are also cross connected between the two serial port devices.

If you are familiar with a simple cabling network known as a "Null Modem" device, you will recognize that Virtual To Virtual acts as a Virtual Null Modem device. Source code for this component is also available in the VSP SDK.
