Is there any documentation about what commands I can send to the board through the USB-UART port?

I know pressing the reset button,I can get some configurations back from the USB-UART port.

test.console application is programmed into your board.

These command will be sent from PC(USB) to the MCU(UART).

Some of them controls Wi-Fi SoC.

It depends on which application programmed into the EVB.

Most of sample application in SDK don't accept any commands.

You mean I need to program the MCU chip to interpret the data from the UART and define some actions based on it?

If you have an EVB that programmed some application like AT commands, you don't need program.

You can ask the vendor about these commands.

Otherwise, you should program something into your EVB.

By the way, what kind of evaluation you'll do?

        - Get the device MAC address.

    get_rssi

        - Get the received signal strength of the AP (client mode only).

    join <ssid> <open|wpa|wpa2> [key] [ip netmask gateway]

        - Join an AP. DHCP assumed if no IP address provided

    join_default

        - Join the AP 'YOUR_AP_SSID' and obtain an IP address using DHCP

    join_specific <ssid> <bssid> <channel> <open|wpa|wpa2> <key> [ip netmask gateway]

    leave

        - Leave an AP.

    powersave <1|0>

        - Enable/disable powersave mode.

    scan

    get_tx_power

        - Gets the tx power in dBm.

    status

        - Print status of the Wi-Fi and network interfaces.

    start_ap <ssid> <open|wpa|wpa2> <key> <channel>

        - Start AP mode.

    stop_ap

        - Stop AP mode.

    wifi_on

        - Turn Wi-Fi device on.

    wifi_off

        - Turn Wi-Fi device off.

    wifi_reset
