Serial COM Port TerminalMulti-Threaded TTY (MTTTY) is an easy to use serial terminal utility that you can use to communicate with the RS-232 serial ports on your device or development kit. It is multi-threaded in that you can run multiple instances of MTTTY for each serial port.
MTTTY is commonly used for:
- Displaying status messages sent from a device, such as when using iprintf().
- Reprogramming a new application image through the boot monitor.
- As a serial interface to any application.
How to set up the serial portPort: The PC’s serial port you wish to use.
Baud Rate: The host computer and the attached serial device must agree on a speed or baud rate to use for the serial connection (the recommended setting for both is 115200).
Parity: Checks whether data has been lost or written over when transmitted between your host PC and your device (default = None).
Data Bits: The number of bits in a transmitted data package (default = 8).
Stop Bits: The stop bit follows the data and parity bits in serial communication. It indicates the end of transmission (default = 1).
Connect: Pressing the Connect button will acquire the PC serial port for the MTTTY application. No data can be sent or received unless the connection button has been selected.
