Some few randoms errors on UART serial communication

Postby mr.DisplayName » Mon Sep 16, 2019 12:08 pm

Hello, I wondered if someone has had the same issue as me and if anyone has a solution. I have made a simple board with the Wroom 32D. When I hook it up with serial com at 115200 baud. Most of the text is transferred correctly. However, some random characters are wrong. I have an example of the output beneath when I restart the mcu.

So far I have tested:
-The FTDI usb to serial module I use. It works fine on a ESP32 doit board.
-Cheked if the signal is noisy compaired to the ESP32 doit board, turns out my board's serial is a lot less noisy.
-Used a lab power supply to deliver the power instead of the regulator I added on the board, so I can rule out a noisy power supply.
-Removed all the components on the board except those who are essential for the wroom and uart. Or those I think are essential.
-Tested three different wroom 32d modules, to make sure the module wasn't faulty.

Edit from cheking the baud rate with the ocilloscope it seems to be about 116280.

I found the solution. Turns out it was because the ftdi chip and mcu did not share groud. I did not expect it to be a problem since it worked fine with the doit dev board.
