I read in one of your posts that you did get something on your PC screen using the CP2103 uart board. Well now I can get some unintelligible stuff on my Hyperterminal as well!
Turns out I did not have a pin D0 specified as my Receiver pin in my code. I did not know I had to do that. I went thru the tutorial once again and came across the line:
#use rs232(baud=115200, parity=N, bits=8, xmit=PIN_C6, rcv=PIN_C7)
in the Hyperterminal tutorial.
So I just added
#define UDR PIND0 ... in my code.
So now I see gibberish on my screen. Some progress. I tried to change Baud rate using all possible values in the Hyperterminal...But the gibberish does not turn into intelligent text. All that changes is the rate at which gibberish is printed on the screen...and the form of gibberish!
Do you know what could be going wrong?
FYI: my Baud rate on the chip is set to 57600.
Anybody know what could be going wrong?
