Connecting to your computer

The Arduino AVR series boards use TTL-level RS232 communications (Arduino ARM series use 3.3V). Some computers, such as the Commodore 8-bit line of computers, use TTL-Level serial, but most use RS232-level serial communications. If your target platform uses RS232-level serial you will need to construct a proper RS232 circuit. I recommend using a MAX237 chip as it allows all 7 used lines to be level-shifted with a single chip.
