Hi, I was wondering if the Milcandy can (when running an Arduino program) use the USB port as a serial interface with the standard Arduino serial library. Can anyone tell me?

Hi All,

I need a standalone box to use the Grove Emitter to continuously transmit a simple Infrared signal.

Do you think can I use the MilCandy to connect a Grove Emitter and transmit the signal or do you suggest something else?
Thank y
