is there any other option to send binary data into fpga kit ? Well, hyperterminal (there are others that do the same job) deals indeed with characters, but at the end it are all bits that are sent out. So, if you know what the fpga needs to receive, you can figure out easily what to type in HT.
if you use dockligh(another hyperterminal program) you can send data in ascii or binary.
Yes, that's true. The main reason to use ASCII formatted data in communication is to provide a human interface, you can e.g. use hyperterminal to send commands and get readable responses. For a FPGA, it surely more easy to send and receive binary data.
The hyperterminal function "send text file" exactly does what you intend: send a file as is (binary).
Jdhar is talking about hyperterminal from Windows OS. If you send from MCU to PC 00110000 and receive this bit stream in hyperterminal you'll see on the screen 0 (as converted to ASCII). But if you use a program made by you, can display as convenient (hex, BCD, binary, ASCII).
