Introduction for Virtual Serial Port Driver Mobile

Thank you for choosing Eltima Virtual Serial Port Driver Mobile. VSPD Mobile 4.2 is a new generation of a popular driver for mobile devices released by Eltima more than a year ago. Now we bring a totally new level of serial emulation for most up-to-date Pocket PCs, handhelds and smartphones again.

VSPD Mobile creates up to 20 pure virtual serial ports in your mobile system, this results in up to 10 virtual serial ports pairs. Each pair has 2 ports that are virtually connected to each other. For other applications, virtual serial ports will be seen exactly as two real serial ports connected via virtual null-modem cable.

You can select any port numbers for virtual serial port pair as well as change their names from COM to VSP. For example, you can create virtual pair COM5-COM6 (or VSP0-VSP9). In this case all data sent by other applications to virtual serial port COM5 (VSP0) will arrive to virtual serial port COM6 (VSP9), and all data sent to virtual serial port COM6 will arrive to virtual serial port COM5 (VSP0).

This can be seen if you run two terminal programs available for your OS and connect one of them to virtual serial port COM5 and another one – to COM6. Then, everything you type in the first terminal will appear at the second one and vice versa. Of course, you can transfer files, other data or do whatever you want as if there are more real serial ports in your mobile device.

With the help of VSPD Mobile you can connect one application to another using created virtual serial ports pair. Applications will be able to exchange data. This solution can be used, for example, for GPS simulation programs.

One of the useful and very demanding features VSPD Mobile provides is freeing existing serial ports (COM1 for instance which may be used by other device and is occupied therefore) to spear a slot for virtual one and use it for your needs.

Another great feature is sharing virtual serial ports, which enables you to share any virtual serial port between several applications. This is a good solution for those, who want to operate one virtual serial port by using several applications simultaneously.
