USB Stick Logger for Serial Data UART

01/31/2013 Category: Data Acquisition, Microcontroller, PIC, USB

This PIC24FJ64GB002-based project allows you to log serial (UART) data and record it to an USB thumb drive without need a PC. To use USB Stick Data Logger, simply connect your system to the logger and plug in an USB key drive. Once the device is connected and correctly configured, all incoming characters on the serial interface are written to the file “LOGGING.TXT” on the USB key drive.

Data logger to USB pendrive

The usb data logger uses single power supply 5V and has configurable UART baudrate on configuration file ‘config.txt’ on the USB thumbdrive. Default setting for the UART is: 9600 baud, 1 start bit, 1 stop bit, no parity. This useful serial data logger is designed by Thomas Fischl.
