AltSoftSerial Library, for an extra serial port

Td Libs Newsoftserial

AltSoftSerial Library, for an extra serial port. Paul Stoffregen, designer of the Teensy board we stock has an intriguing new Arduino Software Serial library. This one uses the 16 bit timer to do data capture and transmission…

It’s ideal when you need simultaneous data. If you try the example that comes with SoftwareSerial in Arduino 1.0, and type “Goodnight” in the Arduino Serial Monitor, you’ll see what actually comes out of pin 3 at 4800 baud is “Goot”. The characters “dnigh” are lost. The reason is because while SoftwareSerial is sending the letter “G” at 4800, the letters “oodnigh” arrive at 57600 baud. Only “oo” are held in the UART registers. The rest are lost because interrupts were disabled for too long.

Often people misunderstand these problems and falsely attribute them to NewSoftSerial’s inability to keep up with the rapid pace of data. In this example, the failure is actually on the hardware serial reception. NewSoftSerial is easily able to work at 4800 baud, but in doing so it interferes with other things.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
