...a serial data stream from a motorcycle's ECU...
Guess the easiest thing is to just do something like this:
seems like I'm missing occasional bytes on the wire and looks like the data is corrupted.
Can you have any speed you like with serial ? is 7800 a permissible number ?
You said, you didn't see anything at all.And then you said, some bytes are missing .To me that seems inconsistent. Are you seeing anything happen, what do you see ?
