So far, I think this is the best idea, and after checking out my
methodology and initial circuit design, I see no reason why I cannot
go as high as 9600 baud. Even the more inexpensive AD converters can
achieve that speed when we only want to use 8 bits. I am toying
around the idea for using an 8 bit AD converter, then its just a
matter of clocking them out a UART.
