The Raw Communications Protocol is a new feature released in SHIP v5.0.126 and beyond Badge SHIPv5.gif.

This video application note shows in detail how to set up and use a Raw communications link in SHIPTide, including the ability to send and receive strings, bytes, bits or whatever datatype back and forth between your device and the SIM.

A complete back-to-back demo project is included below.

AN0504 Demo Project

You can use both attached projects "A" and "B" with any two SIMs wired back to back with their UART (power, RX<-TX, TX->RX) or just one project "A" or "B" with one SIM wired to an external device via the UART.

Both "A" and "B" send and object and also receive an object.

The projects, by default, come up for the SIM231, but you can File->Change Platform/Variant and retarget the project for your specific SIM.
