Serial Port Input Assistance
I'm trying to get serial input into my iPhone (3.0) using Colin(TheRain)'s source code found here: DevDot - Iphone Serial Port Tutorial, which i've slightly modified - to baud 9600 for my micro-controller and to read in 8 bytes instead of just 1.
The problem i'm experiencing is this:
- The serial data my micro-controller is outputting is 8 characters, either '48' or '49', for 0 and 1 in ASCII respectively.
- When i connect a serial cable from my computer to my micro-controllers serial output port, and run putty with the settings 9600, 8, N, 1 - i get this data exactly - "000000000"
- When i connect my iPhone's serial RX port to the micro-controller's serial output port and the iPhone ground pin to the ground of my micro-controllers power supply ground and run the serial program (set to 9600, 8, N, 1) in Terminal, i get the following output "EEEEEEE" - 7 E's, though i'm reading in 8 characters.
- If i cast this data to integers, i get the following:
-58, -58, -58, -58, -58, -58, -58, 6
- When one of the bits is set to 1 instead of 0, an "E" is changed to an "F" - eg 1. 00000010 is displayed as EEEEEFE
eg 2. 01000000 is displayed as FEEEEEE
This makes sense as it is the next ASCII value.
However, if the MSB is set to 1 - 10000000 - i get the output gEEEEEE
This bits are being read in from the MSB to the LSB.
It appears as if the MSB and MSB-1 are being over-written.
Has anyone seen this before? Does anyone have any suggestions?
All help is appreciated.
Placing a 10K resistor between the serial output pin of the micro-controller and the iPhone serial input pin doesn't help
If someone has gotten serial input working can they give some tips?
