Virtual Serial Communication

The Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) controller is the key component of the serial communications subsystem of a computer. The UART takes bytes of data and transmits the individual bits in a sequential fashion. At the destination, a second UART re-assembles the bits into complete bytes. Serial transmission is commonly used with modems and for non-networked communication between computers, terminals and other devices. There are two primary forms of serial transmission: Synchronous and Asynchronous. Depending on the modes that are supported by the hardware, the name of the communication sub-system will usually include a A if it supports Asynchronous communications, and a S if it supports Synchronous communications. Some common acronyms are:

  • UART: Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter
  • USART: Universal Synchronous-Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter

In This Post we will talk about Virtual Serial Communication and how to emulate serial port to use in you application or simulation.

The Steps to create Virtual Serial Port (VSP):

  • Download VSPE – 86x Version (Free)
  • Download Teraterm or use your regular terminal

After download and install VSPE now you will be able to create your own virtual serial port without having one and connect virtual or physical device with it. The benefits of VSPE that it have various modes of communication such, Connector, Splitter, Pair, Streams, etc, and that’s help you create whatever communication topology you want with your applications.

Use-cases of This Software:

  • Connecting Matlab with Proteus or Any Other Simulator Via SerialCom Component.
  • Connecting Application with Proteus or Any Other Simulator Via SerialCom Component.
  • Connecting Terminal with Proteus or Any Other Simulator Via SerialCom Component.
  • etc

VSPE Connections Types:

  • Connector
  • Splitter
  • Pair
  • Mapper
  • TCPServer
  • TCPClient
  • Serial Redirector
  • UDP Manager
  • Bridge
  • Spy
