USB driver from HID to TTY


Hi,

Is there some USB driver that can 'transform' HID devices to TTY devices?

Some background information:
First I used a serial (RS232) KNX interface (home automation), which I could connect to over /dev/ttyS0. Now I have to move to an USB KNX interface (the serial one is discontinued :-( ), which is seen as an USB HID device. Unfortunately I can not simply use another driver, but can change the input of the current driver from /dev/ttyS0 to something like /dev/ttyUSB0 (like used with a FTDI interface).

Hope someone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Found out that there are more differences between the serial and the USB device, so I definitely have to move to another driver. This knowledge makes my question not applicable anymore!
