View Full Version : Need Help with the FullDuplexSerial.class ...
02-03-2007, 12:01 AM
I am new to the prop chip and object code. I am assuming that the FullDuplexSerial Code is a driver that sets upĚ communication for the prop. After the code is programmed in the chip can I just give a command to wait for serial data and if so could someone please give me an example for 9600 baud, 8-data bits and one stop bit, no parity.

Not sure about what you are doing but if you use simple serial with the gps module lets say it would be something like this
(whatever speed you need)
text."tv_text" 'or vga or whatever
repeat a from 0 to 119 '120 read at a shot
repeat a from 0 to 119
waitcnt(80_000_000+cnt)'wait one second

make sure your indentation is correct as my reply did not include it

First of all, have a look at the source code for FullDuplexSerial.spin which is included with the Propeller Tool. As is true with many of the I/O drivers written by a variety of people, there are comments, some detailed, that explain how the driver works and how to use it. Many of these drivers also come with a simple demo program. As an example for FullDuplexSerial:
ser : "FullDuplexSerial" ' Full Duplex Serial Controller
_clkmode = xtal1 + pll16x
_xinfreq = 5_000_000
serRecv = 0 ' Receive on I/O pin 0
serXmit = 1 ' Transmit on I/O pin 1
pri main | c
' Note that FullDuplexSerial does not handle parity and always
' uses 8 data bits and one stop bit. There are options for inverting
' either the transmit or receive lines or both and options for "open"
' signalling (open collector/drain) on transmit and for throwing away
' echoed received characters.
ser.start(serRecv,serXmit,%0000,9600) ' 9600 Baud
ser.str(string("This is a test string that will be transmitted.",13,10))
if (c := rxtime(500)) => 0 ' Wait up to 500ms for a character
case c of
' do something with a digit
' do something with a letter
' ok, here's a return
' backspace key
