How to store data coming in through the serial port?


So my processor and supporting chips are correctly reading the pressure data which I am able to monitor on my laptop via a serial port using USBSerial.

However, I am still unsure as to how to store this data on my PC to process it further, maybe import it into python to do some plotting.

Can someone help?


Hello Utkarsh,

Some serial terminal applications are capable to record the received serial data in a file.

For example, on Ubuntu:

  • run the gtkterm and use the Log to File function,

  • run the moserial and use the Record to File function.

I’m sure there are serial terminal applications with similar function available also for Windows (e.g termite) and Mac as well.
