Terminal Window

This tool is intended for testing of TR module applications communicating via SPI.

The user does not compose a packet but just puts a text to the Data to send entry field and clicks the Send button (or presses the Enter key). Then the packet is automatically created, sent via SPI built-in the TR module and logged in the Terminal Log window. If the Check Mode option is activated, IDE periodically polls the state of the TR module. When any data is available, it is read and displayed in the Terminal Log window. The Send button is inactive if TR module is in the debug mode.
