How to add serial input device on Omega2+ question
I am new to the Omega2+ and appreciate any suggestions. I have a device (external board) that reads custom sensor info and is read through a serial over usb interface (lots of terminal emulator applications to read output out there like Tera Term). What is the best way to use the USB port on the Omega2 or Omega2+ to read the serial over USB?
How can I find out if the Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge is supported?
There is an SPI interface but the device I am connecting but lacks documentation.
Looks like there is USB serial port support from this thread: https://community.onion.io/topic/47/usb-serial-port-support/2
I appreciate any suggestions.
You can try one of the following options:
cat <path/to/usb/device>- defaults to a certain baudrate (9600 I believe)
minicom- bit more complex, please read up on how to use this properly
screen <path/to/usb> <baudrate>
- for use in programs, try pySerial
