Some chars trasmitted by USART (using HAL) are received wrong by the Serial Monitor on my PC

Hello Community,

I am using the function HAL_UART_Transmit to send a string of 4 character in output to a display. I order to test the function first I am using a serial monitor (TERMITE) on my PC but i got this problem in the title.

I am using NUCLEO-H743ZI with HAL libraries generated with CubeMX and this is my code in the main file:


uint8_t mbuff[1];
uint8_t transBuff[4];

HAL_UART_Transmit(&huart3, transBuff, 1, 200);
HAL_UART_Transmit(&huart3, (uint8_t *)mbuff, sizeof(mbuff), 200);

in the first case when i send mbuff i receive "d" and  that is correct, but when I send a string with more than one character (transBuff) instead of receiving "cosa" i receive "c7a".


Has anyone got the same problem?


the configuration of USART is the following:


void MX_USART3_UART_Init(void)


  huart3.Instance = USART3;
  huart3.Init.BaudRate = 115200;
  huart3.Init.WordLength = UART_WORDLENGTH_7B;
  huart3.Init.StopBits = UART_STOPBITS_1;
  huart3.Init.Parity = UART_PARITY_NONE;
  huart3.Init.Mode = UART_MODE_TX_RX;
  huart3.Init.HwFlowCtl = UART_HWCONTROL_NONE;
  huart3.Init.OverSampling = UART_OVERSAMPLING_16;
  huart3.Init.OneBitSampling = UART_ONE_BIT_SAMPLE_DISABLE;
  huart3.Init.Prescaler = UART_PRESCALER_DIV2;
  huart3.Init.TXFIFOThreshold = UART_TXFIFO_THRESHOLD_1_8;
  huart3.Init.RXFIFOThreshold = UART_RXFIFO_THRESHOLD_1_8;
  huart3.AdvancedInit.AdvFeatureInit = UART_ADVFEATURE_NO_INIT;
  if (HAL_UART_Init(&huart3) != HAL_OK)
    _Error_Handler(__FILE__, __LINE__);



All the setting in the serial monitor are correct. Using Printf function the reception is always good but using the HAL_UART_Transmit function with more than one character there are some problems. Could be a problem with the clock syncronization? Should be better to decreas the BAUD rate in this case?

Thank you
