Lab 6: UART Serial Communication
This is lab 6 of 7 in the course
by National Instruments
This lab allows students to explore the basics of serial communication using a microcontroller (such as a Digilent chipkit uC32) as the transmitter and the Analog Discovery 2 as the receiver. Students will explore and visualize the effects of different factors (such as baud rates and endian-ness) on serial communications. Advanced students can challenge themselves to build a multi-device transmitter and receiver system or investigate decoding signals from binary back to decimal values.
