Introduction to SimpleTerm (Gold Edition)


SimpleTerm Gold is an advanced serial port test, simulation and data
analysis tool. It will allow you to view and send (all 256)
ASCII/Extended-ASCII (non-printable) data in an easy to read
colour coded sequence. It is a high performance 32-bit application
designed to run on almost all PCs running Microsoft Windows

9x, NT, 2000 and XP.


SimpleTerm Gold is a mature, stable product used by professional
technicians,
engineers and software developers as a development aid and debugging
tool
for RS232/serial port related projects. It's easy to use "simple" user
interface makes it a favourite amongst serial port novices.
SimpleTerm Gold will work with the serial/COM ports provided by your
operating system. Physically, these ports will be RS232 SUB D9
interfaces
in most cases. However, it is also possible to use SimpleTerm GE for
other communication standards such as RS485 and RS422, which have a
different electrical design to RS232 but follow the RS232 communication
mechanism. Also supported are most modern USB-Serial adaptors.
Testing SimpleTerm (Gold Edition)
One way to test out SimpleTerm is to perform
a loop-back test by jumping pins 2 and 3 on
your computer's RS-232 connector or use a null
modem cable with two ports and run two copies
of SimpleTerm. With the loop-back connection
anything you type into the text area will be
echoed back.
Another way is to make a connection to a
modem (connect to the com port the modem
is on). Most characters that you type
should be echoed back by the modem. Try
sending "ati1" (without the quotes) and then
press the enter key. You should see the
something similar to the following returned:

aattii11<0D><0D><0D><0A>Intel(R) 536EP V.92


Modem<0D><0A><0D><0A>OK<0D><0A>
The data is displayed on screen in a colour coded ASCII/Hexadecimal
mixed mode view:
Output data:
- Standard printable ASCII characters are shown on-screen in
black.
- Special/extended characters (00h to 31h and 7Fh to FFh) characters
are shown
on-screen in blue and are enveloped in left and right angle
brackets e.g. <hh> where
hh are the two hexadecimal digits of the 8-bit character.
Input data:
- Standard printable ASCII characters are shown on-screen in
green.
- Special/extended characters (00h to 31h and 7Fh to FFh) characters
are shown
on-screen in red and are enveloped in left and right angle

brackets e.g. <hh> where


hh are the two hexadecimal digits of the 8-bit character.
Communication data may be copied to the clipboard or printed in colour.
You may
also search for specific characters using the Find button or via the
Edit->Find menu item.
