Displaying Data From a Microcontroller

Not open for further replies.


I want to display and record data from a Microcontroller (PIC micro specifically) on my computer. Yes I could use a USB to UART and use the console, but what if I wanted something nice, like a meter display? My the two choices I have in mind are Labview or Makerplot. Both are the same price ($40ish), but Makerplot seems like a "dumbed down" version of Labview.

Does anyone have suggestions Of What I could use? Both seem very simple and I know how to use labview.

lately i have been using a 4pin 232bluetooth module, on the pic side i use tx/rx @ 9600 baud, (im not sure if you can change it)

on the host side:
with my computer i use a BT usb dongle and terminal software ( but is easy to do code in VB)
plus I have the option of the data terminal on my ANDROID, and do my own decoders with Eclipse.
