InteropComObjects allows Silverlight 4 developers to access local computer-resources like serial ports via the COM interop functionality added to OOB SL4 applications. So this works for Windows Out Of Browser context only to access resources otherwise inaccassible
I use the interop COM object SerialPort
to receive input from a GPS-Device to my Silverlight-App. It is just a wrapper to the System.IO.Ports.SerialPort which is not available from within SL.
I have put it in the System.IO.Ports namespace so that you can just use your exsiting WPF-code in a Silverlight-project after referencing
Download the binaries, register the SerialPort.dll, reference SLSerialPort.dll in your new SL-App and get started with serial port communictation from within a SL (OOB / elevated rights) application
download the sln and source from SVN to see how it works.
