Minicom: serial communication

You can communicate directly with the ATmega2560 through the serial port using minicom. The serial port of the Raspberry Pi to use is always “/dev/serial0”, while the baud rate depends on the firmware running on he microcontroller.

If the RFLink firmware is running, use this command to open a connection:

pi@d-diot:~ $ sudo minicom -b 57600 /dev/serial0

Common minicom commands:

exit = press 'CTRL+a', then 'x'
menu = press 'CTRL+a', then 'z'
line parameters = press 'CTRL+a', then 'p'

To configure minicom:

pi@d-diot:~ $ minicom -s
