Improving Arduino's Serial Monitor Performance

Submitted by paul on Sat, 2014-12-06 20:57

Today I worked on the toughest Arduino bug... keeping the serial monitor from locking up or crashing with maximum speed printing from Teensy 3.1 and Arduino Due.

Here's Technical details and mini rant about Java performance.  Hopefully this (and other good work) will lead to future Arduino versions with a serial monitor that doesn't suck.

I can't tell you how many times the serial monitor has locked up because I left a debug print statement in my Teensy 3.1 code.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to deal with the serial monitor locking up because I left a debug print statement in my code.  Thanks!


Hey Paul,

I just read your GitHub post on serial monitor performance. I'd be curious if you'd be willing to help improve codebender's Serial Monitor as well. We had speed issues in the past, which we fixed, but it'd be interesting to see how it could be improved to work well with Max speed serial monitor.
