Termite Terminal – RS232 Interfacing

Termite is an easy to use and easy to configure RS232 terminal. It uses an interface similar to that of “messenger” or “chat” programs, with a large window that contains all received data and an edit line for typing in strings to transmit.

Plug-in interface for pre-processing or alternative views of the data, logging received data to a file, adding a toolbar to Termite, and other functionality that you may think of.

Termite Terminal

It can also do ..

  • A history of commands that you typed, with auto-completion.
  • Support for non-standard Baud rates (MIDI, DMX512).
  • Data can be forwarded between two RS232 ports.

The free Hyperterminal seemed to be missing, Now new and better feature rich terminals are available – Here’s one from CompuPhase who are our kind of people the EE kind. This terminal ought to help serial port SBC development.

PuTTY is a client program for the SSH, Telnet and Rlogin network protocols.

Realterm is a terminal program specially designed for capturing, controlling and debugging binary and other difficult data streams.

The CREATE USB Interface – Dan Overholt

PIC18F4550 has a USB Interface easy to use, code or configure. This page will help in trying out this PC friendly PIC Microcontroller. A useful HowTo by Dan Overholt. of OverTone Labs– CUI32Stem

The CREATE USB Interface – Dan Overholt

The Create USB Interface is an open source microcontroller board that can be programmed in C, BASIC, or Arduino languages. This latest version is called the CUI32Stem, which is designed to work ‘hand-in-hand’ with the GROVE prototyping system including a wide range of sensors and actuators.

The CUI32Stem GROVE Dash Kit is made up of a CUI32Stem board together with an assortment of GROVE elements, as listed below.

PIC18F4550

The PIC is the heart of the board. It’s a programmable microcontroller with 32Kbytes of flash program memory and 2kbytes of general purpose SRAM. It has 13 A/D inputs and 18 general purpose I/O ports. On the CUI board, one of the general purpose I/O pins is dedicated to the “program” button to enter bootloading mode. You can use the remaining ports for anything you wish.
