    RS232 Spartan 3E testing

    Hello,

    I am trying to get the RS232 (connection between laptop and Spartan 3E) work.
    I found these github links which I am trying to make them work and see something on the Serial. I use Termite here.
    https://github.com/tvanas/uart-vhdl
    https://github.com/uzairakbar/fpga-idea
    Can someone tell me how I make it see some characters sent to/from my laptop (even encrypted/decrypted)??

    Thank you

    Hi,

    You just need the correct setup on both sides....then most terminal software can show the HEX values.

    Nothing special.

    Assuming your design is functioning properly, a common problem is baud rate matching.
    Make sure the rate at VHDL UART and your PC console application is the same.
