2nd Uart for Development?


#1

Would you advise adding one of the slot in cards to add an extra physical UART to the Wavecom unit (FastTrack Supreme), to avoid having debug/control on the same Uart as the input you are trying develop and application for?


#2

Definitely! 8)


#3

Might have to give that a try as I’m banging my head on the wall currently. You responded to my post here
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3278
about those troubles. Thanks for the input.


#4

Yes, it should be possible through the PC - but using a separate UART is definitely far easier, IMO. 8)

With the plug-in card, you could also use the USB - but that gets a bit messy if the unit restarts… :frowning:


#5

Have you tried the Uart_raw_access sample in the past? Did it just work for you?

(I have been able to get GPRS emails going so have had some success with the unit.)


#6

No.

I think that’s a new feature - haven’t tried it yet.

I’ve just used FCM.

What do you require that can’t be done in FCM?


#7

It was just some example code that reads from the Uart. That’s all I wanted to start from.
Is there another example I could start with, I done a fairly good look for other UART examples and not found anything?
