Communicate with the Cricket unit

Once connected to the Cricket unit over a serial communication link using a terminal program like HyperTerminal or minicom, you can run the following test to see if the unit works.

  1. Power the Cricket unit on. This switch is different from the ``TEST'' switch, which you don't have to touch. (Both switches are marked on the board.)

  2. Send the following command to the Cricket unit using the terminal program: G CF $<$return$>$.

  3. A multi-line output should appear giving you information about the Cricket unit's configuration.
