I am doing RS232 communication project using PIC 16F877A. I have a real time clock cycle and it works in hardware. I need to see the clock information in a terminal program using UART. Will you help me in this project?
It is very easy. You may use RS232 or normal 5V UART. You can choose it depending on the USB to UART converter you are planning to use. If it is having RS232 output, just use MAX232 IC to convert 5V UART to RS232.
You can use softwares like Putty, Hyperterminal, UART Terminal etc. to view the data in a PC.
