Electronic – Hyper terminal equivalent in windows 8


I need to do some communication between 8051 micro-controller and PC . There used to be a hyper terminal for this purpose in windows XP. I m using windows 8 now. So can anyone suggest me some equivalent of hyper terminal in windows 8 for the purpose of serial comm. between micro-controller and PC.

PuTTY, surprisingly enough, can act as a full-featured serial terminal. It supports full-blown VT-102/VT-80 command codes too.

There is Termite, which is a very nice, no-installation 200K exe:

Parallax also has a nice serial terminal.
