Can I use a real terminal for the MDM UART with Microblaze

Currently I am using the serial interface in the MDM to do comms with my microblaze on a Kintex part (I am running Vivado 2020.1).

That all works fine, but I would love to send a file, or small chunk of data (more than I want to type by hand though) across to the microblaze.  I am not really worried about the receiving end, I'll figure that out, but I cannot seem to figure out a way to transmit it.  Since I am using the MDM, no comm port shows up on my PC, so I cannot use something like TeraTerm.  And the console tab in VItis doesn't have an option to paste in data or send a file, so that is out.

Is there anyway I can accomplish this?  Or without a real UART, am I stuck?

If you want to open the serial port on the MDM, you need to target this in XSDB and use the jtagterminal command:


In terms of sending data, there are much better ways to do this
