Developers and hardware engineers will appreciate the ability of this software to test communication ports (including virtual and USB serial ports) at their maximal bandwidth and simulate the harshest operational conditions possible by generating an extremely fast data stream with alternating baud rate, flow control, RTS and DTR states. Which is more, COM Port Stress Test is capable of working with two ports at the same time, so you can actually use it to test null-modem cables. Connection speed and the amount of data sent to the ports are shown in the program window.
