I have a lot of old motherboards that I want to use for different projects and I've run into a major problem too many times now: every board has at least 1 serial port but rarely even the old VGA port. So I can't even operate those boards with my really "old" PC screens with stone-old VGA.
Are there new types of terminals nowadays that fullfil the purpose of a classic terminal but in an up-to-date way?
I've searched for something like that and I didn't find anything.
How I imagine a "modern" and "up-to-date" style terminal:
- uses the good old Serial Port
- 1 or 2 USB slots
- uses any battery, rechargable or not
- it is very small, preferably as small as a Samsung Galaxy Mini e.g.
- due to its size, modern/easy technology and simple purpose it should be accordingly very cheap, maybe up to 30 bucks MAX.
P.S.: Even if I would get an old terminal for free, it is still way too big and just wastes space, considering its single and nowadays extremely simple purpose. And I would never pay for a Vintage one since from that perspective they have 0 value to me.
