Thanks for the attention ericthegeek,

No doubt with the microcontroller will be easier, and I have no problem using them, I have some products that use PICs and could enjoy them on the production line.

So, starting with a microcontroller splitter, I had the following question:

Do I use the microcontroller to "buffer" the message and pass it on?
Or I use the microcontroller just to detect the start communication request and direct the controller communication to responder vice versa.

Trying to explain better.
Thinking about my current 485 transceiver that I use on my DMX splitter, I will leave it like this today and add the microcontroller just controlling the communication direction or I will read the input message with the microcontroller and it passes the message forward.
