UART and/or Serial Support?

Is there anyway to set up the logic analyzer for UART buses?

 

Best regards,

Cameron

This was one of the first things I put on my feedback when I got one of the first VirtualBenches on the market.  Last I checked, it is still not there.  But the need for UART in the logic analyzer is something I am mostly certain I will need sometime soon.

Hi clafolette and crossrulz,

 

Thanks for posting regarding this - VB today does not support UART decoding.  However, while I cannot make any guarantees, UART is being actively considered for future software updates as we too believe it would be a valuable feature.

And yesterday was the "sometime soon".

 

But as an extension, it would be nice to actually have an RS-232 port or two on the VirtualBench.  Even a TTL UART would be useful in the applications I am currently running into (direct communications with microchips and/or their peripherals).  I am currently using 2 USB-RS232 adapters for my testing.  If you want to take this to the next extreme, allow for probing the RS-232 signals coming in on the port (useful for verifying Baud Rate).

Also today in year 2019 it would be usefull to have the posibility to select UART as bus on the Logic analyser.

Do you have any update regarding this topic?

October 2020, still no UART support.

I need to switch over to (https://www.saleae.com/) in order to decode UART.

I really like the VB, but lack of UART support really limits my use for the instrument.
