Richard Wall: Serial Communication and chipKIT Pro

Last week, we talked about using chipKIT Pro to control LCDs in our Digilent Learn module that covers Richard Wall’s material. Today, we’re going to get into the eighth project  in this series using the chipKIT Pro MX7.

The project “chipKIT Pro and Serial Communication” is all about asynchronous communications and how to communicate with a microcontroller using a terminal emulation program to implement a point-to point-serial link between the chipKIT Pro MX7 and a PC. This project models a system that has both local and remote control.

You'll need to use the PmodCLP LCD Display with this one.
