How to transport UART format data to PC?

Started by August 1, 2007
Hi All,

I have an image sensor module which has an UART output format. Now, I
want to get it work and transport the image data to PC for testing!
What need I do to get it? The sensor works at least 460KBaud.

I need the fast way to get it work, any suggestion would be great
appreciated!

Thanks!

Doh, How about something to work with here. What image sensor module ? What is the format of the UART data ? 460KBaud is not a standard PC baud rate, external hardware may be necessary. donald

It's a image sample device.

I mean the device output the image data through UART.

So need I make a board by USB + DSP/FPGA + image device? If so, I have to develop the firmware, driver and my application. But I have no exerience in firmware and driver development. Any suggestions?

Find an USB-serial converter that supports the baudrate needed. Leo Havm&oslash;ller.

Thanks Leo! USB-serial converter and then program it like a real COM port?

I find a converter of silicon's CP2101. It can support 460800 921600bps. Is it OK?

I wouldn't do that. Most are less than 100% reliable and usually only support the standard baud rates. Use a PC with a serial port. -- \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/ /\/\/ chris@phaedsys.org www.phaedsys.org \/\/\ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

If by USB-serial converter one means a packaged module rather than a chip then higher baud rates can be problematical because 232 was never inteded for these speeds. However, if one uses chips and directly interface at 5v/3v3 then good results are definitely possible.

My own experience is that they can work well and that they generally support higher baudrates - signal integrity, as describe above, being the main problem.

Since the OP asked for at least 460KBaud (though I think they meant 460kBaud) and PC serial port go to 115 there would be a problem. -- Peter

Hook it up to a UART on the PC.

A serial port.

Use a serial port that runs at 460K baud. -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! Were these parsnips at CORRECTLY MARINATED in visi.com TACO SAUCE?

Yes. It is a real COM port. -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! Do you think the at "Monkees" should get gas on visi.com odd or even days?
