-This guide will show the process of installing and configuring a terminal emulator. For Windows ​the tutorial will be using Tera Term which is an open-source,​ free, software implemented,​ terminal emulator. For Linux(Ubuntu 16.4) the tutorial will be using PuTTY which is a free and open-source terminal emulator, serial console and network file transfer application. Digilent uses these terminal emulators in our demos for communicating through the USB UART and Ethernet on Digilent FPGAs. ​+This guide will show the process of installing and configuring a terminal emulator.
