HPC Connectivity

It is intended that a Hewlett Packard Jornada HPC will act as the display device for the new Cyber-Jacket.  Information will be sent to the HPC over an RS-232 channel on the system bus using a pseudo direct-cable-connection in HTML format whereby a web-browser on the HPC will render the information from a web-server running on the wearable motherboard (ADS Bitsy).

The RS-232 channel on the system bus is actually a null modem cable with the data lines crossed and the handshaking lines bridged at each connection point, i.e. the DSR-DTR and CTS-RTS handshaking lines are bridged on the Bitsy interface PCB and also on the connector that mates with the HPC serial cable.
