I have been blogging on how to make the two seemingly identical LaunchPads distinct, and how to configure Code Composer Studio to recognise them.
We still have one weak point: PuTTY.
In its standard setup, both the TX and RX terminal session look very similar. The only visual clue we have is the port number in the title.
Visual Clues to show if PuTTY Connects to TX or RX
I've configured my PuTTY sessions in a way that its more obvious. The TX one has a red background, the RX one is purple.
I've also marked the label on my launchpads with the same colour.
The window title is also adapted. It shows TX and RX.
Open your TX puTTY configuration.
Set the Window Title CC1310 TX
Navigate back to Session and Save.
Now load the RX configuration. Choose a different colour and make the title 1310 RX
Save the session. All Done.
Never ever will you have to guess what terminal talks to RX or TX.
