Thanks for your interest in the Intel Edison Platform.
This is an interesting question! A user was able to get the RTS/CTS flow control working, so I recommend you to check this thread UART with HW (RTS/CTS) flow control . Also, if you are using the Intel® Edison Kit for Arduino*, I think that you will find this guide useful Intel® Edison Kit for Arduino* Hardware Guide .
Please let us know if any questions come up.
We will be waiting for your results, have a nice day!
Thank you for your return.
I already saw this post but I do not know how to try on linux with screen to find the good port to use.
Can I use /dev/ttyMDF0 ?
When you say: "I do not know how to try on Linux with screen to find the good port to use". Are you talking about establishing a serial connection? If you are having issues, establishing a serial connection, please follow these links:
Once you have established a serial connection to your Intel® Edison Board, then you can run the commands in the thread UART with HW (RTS/CTS) flow control .
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Have a nice day!
I think there is a misunderstanding.
I know exactly how to use UART, as I already use UART1 et UART2.
For example to connect on UART1, I do:
screen /dev/ttyMDF1 115200
=> And i get connect with the devices.
Now I want to do the same on RTS.
My question is what device folder is link to RTS: (What do I need to put in place of @@@@@)
screen /dev/@@@@@ 115200
Thank for your answer.
I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.
Now, I understand your question. Unfortunately, you can't use the RTS and CTS as RX1 and TX1, because the RTS and CTS are hardware flow control signals. In fact, these signals complement the serial communication as they are part of the RS232 standard.
I would encourage you to use your UART1 with RTS/CTS in order to handle better your data transmission.
Please let me know if you have any more questions, have a nice day!
