I needed a terminal which doesn't send each character instantly. For this purpose this software is the best i found out there. I'd like to see something like repeated sending of predifined text and then this program would be really perfect.
You don't have a command burst feature which can sends a command continuously with a small delay after each command sent. I would like to have a feature like this to test my automation controller which the RS-485 serial traffic is at a rate of 1-10ms. Should have it to test most hardware hardware. Writing a firmware for a protocol usually is easy because everything is in the protocol documentations. What is not easy is to deal with possible real-world fast serial traffic. For example, a Modbus RTU slave hardware might get a command receiving rate of 10ms from the master. Why? coz each master may have around 32 slaves under it. The customer don't want to wait for 1 minute just to receive a complete response from all slaves. You got what I mean why we need the autosend / burst mode for sending data in YAT. Good luck my friends..
I have been searching for a terminal window to use to connect to my Arduino; I wanted something that was quick and easy with intuitive configuration and YAT seems to do the trick. I must say I am impress, if you are into home brew bits and bytes YAT is for you.
I have not tested YAT with all of my cases, but at the first sight it is the most PERFECT for device debugging such as AT-commanded modems and so on. Thanks to developers for predefined commands with description field - it is GREAT! I tried to find such App, have already began making my own terminal with Delphi, and just found your well-done tool. Thank you very much! It will help me a lot with my DIY-hobby works)
y-a-terminal works perfectly, thanks
