HOWTO Video: Turn the Automation Controller into a Serial Port Server

I've created a new video demonstrating how to use a Nitrogen Logic Automation Controller as a single-port or multi-port serial-to-Ethernet adapter.  The Automation Controller's ability to handle multiple USB-to-RS-232 (or RS-422 or RS-485) adapters and TCP/IP network connections allows it to replace expensive serial port servers in new system designs and expand I/O on existing systems, while still leaving ample headroom for running custom automation logic.

In the video, I show that you can connect multiple USB-to-serial adapters to the controller through a USB hub, I create the automation logic necessary for serial support, demonstrate the functional serial port server setup, and hint at some of the advanced processing that can be done beyond what a normal serial port server can do.
