Test 2 serial port on the embedded device

  • Hello,

    I have an embedded device, I want to test serial ports of device.
    There are 4 com ports and 1 console. I will use only 2 com ports.
    I will make a connection COM1 to COM2 (rx1 to tx1 and rx2 to tx2), so when I write something on COM1, I will read on COM2.
    For this test, I want to write an application.
    May you help me please about this?
    have no much more expreiance about qt creator. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 now.
    Thank you very much.

  • Check out the serialport examples. Sounds like you might want to combine a reader and writer example into a single program. I think it was just a typo, but you want to connect the transmit/receive of one serial port to the receive/transmit of the other serial port (e.g., tx1 -> rx2).

    Since it sounds like you're just starting out, I wouldn't worry about working with the serial ports yet and first just get your build environment set up. Are you developing on your embedded device or on another system?
