Introduction for Eltima Serial Splitter Mobile


Thank you for choosing Eltima Serial Splitter Mobile. Serial Splitter Mobile is a new generation of professional system utilities for mobile devices.

Serial Splitter Mobile is an application, which allows you to split real serial ports into virtual ones. It can be useful if you need several applications to work with the same serial port on your mobile device simultaneously. Finally, one program works with one virtual port, the other one with another port and so on, but in fact all of them work with the same splitted real port. It is achieved by creating virtual serial ports, which are the same copies of real ones. Each application will think that it is working with serial port in exclusive mode. One of them will be able also to send data to real serial port.

Serial Splitter Mobile can create up to 20 virtual ports for real ports splitting – COM0-COM9, VSP0-VSP9. Moreover, all of the ports are equal! You can specify the read-only access mode for every created port. In case of read-only ports you won’t be able to write anything to the port, only data reading is possible. Read-only mode can be useful, for example, just to read the data and record the real port activity. Besides you can manage real serial port settings: Baudrate, Parity, Databits, Stopbits, Flow.

Since version 3.0 Serial Splitter Mobile features unique ports bundles approach, which lets you split serial ports at one side into multiple virtual or real serial ports at the other one, as well as join multiple serial ports into one. Another unique feature is many-to-many ports splitting/redirection: you can have multiple serial ports at both sides of a bundle, the data will be redirected from incoming ports to outgoing ports. Using our technology of setting main ports at both sides of a bundle, you will be able to easily manage hardware control lines. Note, that both sides of a bundle can have virtual serial ports and real serial ports installed.

One of the useful and very demanding features is freeing existing serial ports (for instance, COM1 may be used by other device and isn’t free therefore) to spear a slot for virtual one and use it for your needs.

With Eltima Serial Splitter Mobile it is possible to connect two or more applications to one real serial port. For example, you can share GPS Receiver between several applications, or join several ports into one with only several clicks.

Serial Splitter can be used to:

  • split real or virtual serial port into several others
  • share any real or virtual serial port between several applications
  • join several serial ports (virtual or real) into one
  • redirect dataflows from virtual serial ports to the real ones or between virtual or real serial ports
  • organize complex bundles with multiple ports at both sides
