Using a UCM Dev Board Rev E with a UC5550
I want to use
UCM Dev Board USB connector (x6)
USB<->Serial UART A (USB VCOM1)
Device Manager shows this as Ports(COM&LPT) - USB Serial Port(COM4)
var SerialDevice = UartController.FromName(“name”);
I have not been able to find information on what “some name” is expected.
I have tried everything I can think of but all return null.
I think from GHIElectronics.TinyClr.Pins Nuget packge, you would have your uart id (string) for your board.
The string is something like that:
Where the last number is usart number - 1
Probably better to use something like that :
STM32F4.UartPort.Usart1 , just in case the underlying string is changing at some time ?
Yes right. But sometime can be useful to know how it works…
Thanks to all!
var SerialDevice = UartController.FromName(UC5550.UartPort.Usart1);
Did not return null so I can now get in more trouble…
Indeed ! And that’s how I was doing in my first programs with TinyCLR
But this string was too long to remember for me
Not that we have discovered a memory leak in uart. Sadly I really needed it for a project I am working on. Crossing fingers for a soon fix.
