What Virtual Serial Port Driver’s сustomers say
How VSPD revolutionized my home weather station
I operate a home weather station and recently added an earthquake monitoring tool, but faced a challenge: running multiple applications from one serial port. Virtual Serial Port Driver, discovered during my search for a solution, proved to be an excellent choice. Its ease of setup allowed me to quickly achieve a multi-serial port configuration, enabling efficient and accurate data transfer for my earthquake tracking software. The product’s value, detailed explanations, and broad functionality make it a standout compared to competitors.
Simplified testing and debugging for cruise ship software
As a company specializing in software for large cruise ships, we often face complex operating environments that require meticulous testing and debugging. While our servers primarily rely on real COM ports, there are instances, especially during remote work or small-scale testing, where Virtual Serial Port Driver proves to be an invaluable asset. This tool simplifies the creation of test environments, enhancing our efficiency in testing and development. It’s a highly useful addition to our toolkit.
Virtual Serial Port Driver is a handy solution for computer science students!
The Max-Eyth-Schule is located in Germany in the federal state of Hessen. It is a major secondary and VET school serving the wider Frankfurt metropolitan area. It provides general education and vocational training in a variety of areas from automotive to administration, IT, and biotechnology. In high school, the Max-Eyth-Schule offers several subject areas.
One subject is computer science. One part of the curriculum is called “Data Communication” and requires communication with the serial port. The students have to implement protocols for communication with external hardware like RFID-reader and -scanner, weather station, or a digital scale.
The school is not able to buy different hardware for every student and we searched for another solution. We found the software with a Google search and used the trial version. The Virtual Serial Port Driver helps to simulate the connection of any hardware. The Virtual Serial Port Driver is easy to use and works without any problem.
With the software, the students define two serial ports which are connected by a null modem cable. They can test the pins of the serial port and learn why it is necessary that both sides use the same parameters. The students learn to use a hardware or a software handshake and make the experience to generate a data package and separate a package into different parts.

VSPD - great solution for developing a simulator for a display with no needed additional cables!
As far as our usage scenario is concerned, we are developing a simulator for a display. We are targeting a TI microcontroller and will conditionally compile the binary for Windows or the microcontroller. However, several serial connections must be made between our GUI and the binary when we target windows. We are using the virtual serial port driver to bridge this gap; otherwise, we would have numerous cables being used to loop back into the PC. It also lets us utilize the target interfaces (serial) and not have to add a layer like UDP for communication on the windows platform.
Handy and reliable software tool
Even if a machine doesn’t have COM ports, the handy and reliable software tool with an intuitive user interface will link you to virtual serial ports and capture all the traffic data you may need.
