I'm having some problems with my G2553 Launchpad. For some time now, the UART functionality has not functioned. I'm now sending the character "a" through the HW UART (Jumpers are positioned correctly) and what I get on my computer is completely different. I tried this in Windows 10, W7, macOS Mojave, even through the physical P1.1 and P1.2 ports to a Raspberry Pi and the result is the same.
I also tried receiving data from a GPS module via UART and the data I received was unusable (the length of data was as expected, but the characters were gibberish).
Has anyone had something similar happen to them?
