Hi all, I know there are always tons of threads which discuss this top but I have not found any which successfully solves my problem. I have an Arduino Due and am connecting to the Programming port ( the one closest the power plug). My problem is simple, I need to find a way to establish a connection to the Arduino WITHOUT resetting the Arduino and to be able to do this in software. Currently, I am connecting to the arduino via a python script and the serial library. ie
import serial ser = serial.Serial(port='ABCD', baudrate=9600) ser.readline()
I really need to be able to be able to open this above-described connection without having the Arduino sktech reset itself. The problem is that the Arduino is now embedded inside a complicated instrument and access is very complicated. I would like to be able to find a method of performing this connection without resetting the Arduino in software.
I read in various places that this might be possible via the appropriate configuration of the serial port via the DSR/DTR configuration. I'm not sure about the details though. Any links or further details would be much appreciated. Thanks
