Customize UART

The topic describes how to customize the WP710x Dev Kit UART port so it can be configured as an application serial port.


The syntax is:



  • a is the service type
  • b is the UART number, either 1 or 2.

Here's a code sample setting 17 for the service type and 1 for the UART number:


Reboot your target after running the command.

Run AT!MAPUART? to check the config settings.

Service Type

The current AT command spec defines the service as:

0:  UART disabled
1:  AT Command service
2:  Diagnostic Message service
3:  Reserved
4:  NMEA service
