arduino serial write, serial write arduino, arduino write serialHello everyone, I hope you all are fine and having fun with your lives. Today, I am going to share the next tutorial in this series of basic Arduino tutorials and it’s named How to use Arduino Serial Write. In this tutorial, I have given an overview of How to use the Arduino Serial Write Command. In the previous tutorial, we have seen How to use Arduino Serial Read? in which we have read the data coming from the serial port.

While today we will have a look at how to send the data through a serial port in Arduino and for that, I am going to use the Arduino Serial Write command. It’s also going to be a very simple and basic Arduino tutorial but if you are new to Arduino then you must read it completely as it will gonna help you out. I have also designed a Proteus Simulation and explained it at the end of this tutorial. I hope you guys are gonna learn from it:

How to use Arduino Serial Write ???

  • In the Arduino Serial Read, we have seen that How to read data coming from the serial port and we have used Pin # 0 for that purpose.
  • So, now we are going to write some data on the Serial Port.
  • It’s like we are sending data from Arduino to some other device via Serial Port.
  • For example, you are using a GSM module with Arduino then you have to send AT commands to your GSM board from Arduino and that’s where you use Arduino Serial write.
  • You can download the Proteus Simulation and code for Arduino Serial Write Command by clicking the below button:

  • Here’s the first syntax for Arduino Serial write:

Arduino Serial Write Syntax 1:

  • Arduino Serial Write is used to write some data on the Serial Port and it sends data in binary form.
  • Here’s Arduino Serial Write Syntax:

Serial.write ( ‘DataSent’ ) ;

where:

  • DataSent is a simple byte and is used in these characters ‘ ‘. The below example code will send byte ‘1’ on the serial port:

Serial.write ( ‘1’ ) ;

  • Now, let’s write some data on Arduino Serial Port using the above syntax and see what we got.

Proteus Simulation

  • So, design a Proteus Simulation as shown in the below figure:

arduino serial write, serial write arduino, arduino write serial

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

// initialize the library with the numbers of the interface pins
LiquidCrystal lcd(13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8);

void setup() {
  // set up the LCD's number of columns and rows:
  lcd.begin(20, 4);
  // Print a message to the LCD.
  lcd.setCursor(1,0);
  lcd.print("www.TheEngineering");
  lcd.setCursor(4,1);
  lcd.print("Projects.com");
  lcd.setCursor(1,0);
  Serial.begin(9600);
  lcd.clear();
  
  Serial.write('1');
}

void loop() 
{
}
  • In the above code, I have simply written a byte which you can see is 1.
  • So, now upload it and run your simulation and if everything goes fine then you will get 1 on your virtual serial terminal of Proteus, as shown in the below figure:

  • You can see in the above figure that we got 1 in Serial Port so now you can send whatever you want via this Arduino Serial Write Command.
  • Now let’s have a look at the second syntax of the Arduino Serial Write command:

Arduino Serial Write Syntax 2:

  • We can also send a String of bytes via Arduino Serial Write Command. Here’s the syntax:

Serial.write ( “DataSent” ) ;

where:

  • DataSent is a simple byte and is used in these characters ” “. The below example code will send our site address on the serial port:

Serial.write ( “www.TheEngineeringProjects.com” ) ;

  • Now let’s sent a string of bytes through this Arduino Serial Write Command, so I have used the below code and have sent our website address via Serial Write.
  • So, use the below code and get your Hex File:
#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

// initialize the library with the numbers of the interface pins
LiquidCrystal lcd(13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8);

void setup() {
  // set up the LCD's number of columns and rows:
  lcd.begin(20, 4);
  // Print a message to the LCD.
  lcd.setCursor(1,0);
  lcd.print("www.TheEngineering");
  lcd.setCursor(4,1);
  lcd.print("Projects.com");
  lcd.setCursor(1,0);
  Serial.begin(9600);
 // lcd.clear();
  
  Serial.write("www.TheEngineeringProjects.com");
}

void loop() 
{
}
  • Run your Proteus Simulation and you will get the below results:

arduino serial write, serial write arduino, arduino write serial

  • You can see in the above figure that we got the whole address via Serial Port.

That’s all for today, I hope you guys have enjoyed today’s post. In the coming post, I am gonna discuss the Arduino Print Command. Thanks for reading. Take care.
