Use 3rd Party Terminal for JTAG-UART IP

Hello!

 

I have a MAX10 with a NIOS2 core. 

I tested both JTAG-UART (USB Blaster from Terasic) and UART IP (a common RS232 to USB adapter) an they work great. I can communicate between NIOS and PC with both of them.

I wrote my own code (3rd Party) and it works with UART-IP and RS232-USB adapter. There is a COM Port in Windows Device Manager: from there is easy. 

But I used the JTAG-UART + USB Blaster only in Eclipse. How can I access the  JTAG-UART + USB Blaster in a 3rd Party Terminal/Console? I want to access the UART over JTAG-UART IP in my own software.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,


Thanks for reaching us,


regarding your question...

you would need to recreate the Jtag - UART architecture independently , please take a look at the following document, page 2 to see how it is constituted.
