UART to PC-Screen using the Pioneer Kit
I stumbled recently over a document (chapter 5.2 pg 28) that describes as a side-effect how to connect the Pioneer Kit to the PC displaying informations using the UART component. The "secret" are two (2) wires connecting the UART Rx and Tx to the on-board PSoC5LP Kit-programmer which then acts as an UART-to-USB bridge. On the PC-side I used the PuTTY program to display (and input) the data. In the description of the F-Ram Development Kit is a detailled procedure to set up the connection and hints where to download the needed terminal program. Remember that you do not need the F-Ram Kit, just put the two wires into the shown locations and all is well.
In short: drop a UART component on your sheet and use pins 0 and 0 for Rx and Tx
Connect external wires on the board between
J4 pin 1 ---Rx---- J8 pin 9
J4 Pin 2 ---Tx---- J8 pin 10
Download and install PuTTY as shown in the above mentioned document.
Example project attached, happy coding!
