Running Quickstart on the mac - looking at serial port

Recommended Posts

I have just acquired a papilio one and I have been following the instructions here:

http://papilio.cc/index.php?n=Papilio.GettingStarted

 

I am using a Mac OS X and have overcome the fix needed to get the FPGA loaded. However, I would like to view the ASCII table output. I have found the serial ports by typing

ls -l /dev/tty.*

and

ls -l /dev/cu.*

 

But the listed serial ports do not seem to correspond to anything to do with the papilio (Bluetooth, my mobile phone and one other). They are listed below

/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port

/dev/tty.NokiaE5-00-DataTransfer-1

/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem

/dev/tty.Slim-DataTransfer

 

/dev/tty.Nokia302-COM1

 

I have used Putty to attempt to connect to them anyway - just in case - but to no avail.

 

Can anyone suggest what I should try next?

Thanks

Chris

Hi Jack, I was able to load a bit file using a Mac, but was unable to observe what was happening on the serial ports like you can on Windows. I have managed to get everything working on a windows machine now, but it would still be convenient if I could use the mac for some tasks such as observing the serial ports.

Thanks for your response.

Chris
