'[PIC]: Transfering data for PIC 2 PC'
2003\02\22@122822 by Christopher Gill

Hi all
Is it possible (theoretically or practically) to pass data gathered by a PIC (a2d values written to external eeprom) to a desktop PC then process the data recived into a format acceptable for excel ie space/tab seperated text files. I think that it should be possible via a serial cable ?
i do not have to produce the working circuit but i have to make sure the idea is correct.

thanks chris

Yes.  I've done similar things several times.

Sure, it's a common kind of thing to do.

You will have to make a program to transfer the data, or at least use
a terminal program to do this and turn on logging.

Your transfer program can then output data in whatever form you need.

Yes - but it would be obsolete soon - laptops without serial ports are now more
common than those with...

Though for this kind of thing a USB to serial cable works fine.

Another way to do this is to emulate a PC keyboard and enter the data
directly into the spread sheet. I use this method to enter data directly
from a micrometer into Excel for graphing surface profiles.
