SmartRF05 Eval board. How to use the RS232 port if my laptop does not have serial port?

Hello All,

 I have been using the SmartRF05 evaluation board with CC2530 chip mounted on the CC2530 evaluation module.

I would like to get data from the CC2530 chip. One option would be to use the RS232 as given by examples in Serial App. But my laptop does not have a serial port. Are there any options around this. Will buying a RS232-USB cable help?

Can I use the existing USB connection which is being used for downloading code and debugging to get data from the 8051 present in the CC2530? (I doubt it...)

Thanks in advance, Sharat
