-USART. Serial I/O – Programmable Communication Interface. Data Communications. Data communications refers to the ability of one computer to. The is a Universal Synchronous/Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter packaged in a pin DIP made by Intel. It is typically used for serial communication. This applet is the first of a series of related applets that demonstrate the USART or universal synchronous and asynchronous receiver and transmitter.

The falling edge of TXC sifts the serial data out of the In “asynchronous mode”, it is possible to select the baud rate factor by mode instruction.

The bit configuration of mode instruction is shown in Figures 2 and 3.

This is a terminal which indicates that the contains a character that is ready to READ. The functional configuration is programed by software.

The terminal will be reset, if RXD is at high level.

Intel 8251

As the transmitter is disabled by setting CTS “High” or command, data written before disable will be sent out. The bit configuration of status word is shown in Fig. It is possible to set the status RTS by a command.

If sync characters were written, a function will be set because the writing of sync characters constitutes part of mode instruction. Data is transmitable if the terminal is at low level. Even if a data is written after disable, that data is not sent out and TXE will be “High”. In “asynchronous mode,” this is an output terminal which generates “high level”output upon the detection of a “break” character if receiver data contains a “low-level” space between the stop bits of two continuous characters.


A “High” on this input forces the to start receiving data characters. Unless the CPU reads a data character before the next one is received completely, the preceding data will be lost.

This is an output terminal for transmitting data from which serial-converted data is sent out. This is an input terminal which receives a signal for selecting data or command words and status words when the is accessed by the CPU.

It is possible to write a command whenever necessary after writing a mode usar and sync characters. The device is in “mark status” high level after resetting or during a status when transmit is disabled. In the case of synchronous mode, it is necessary to write one-or two byte sync characters.

It is possible to see the internal status of the by reading a status word.

It is also possible to set the device in “break status” low level by a command. In such a case, an overrun error flag status word will be set.

A “High” on this input forces the into “reset status. Mode instruction will be in “wait for write” at either internal reset or external reset. The terminal controls data transmission if the device is set in “TX Enable” status by a command. This is a terminal whose function changes according to mode. This is the “active low” input terminal which receives a signal for reading receive data and status words from the Operation between the and a CPU is executed by program control.


That is, the writing of a control word after resetting will be recognized as a “mode instruction. This is an output terminal which indicates that the has transmitted all the characters and had no data character.


The input status of the terminal can be recognized by the CPU reading status words. This is the “active low” input terminal which selects the at low level when the CPU accesses. In “internal synchronous mode. After Reset is active, the terminal will be output at low level.

This is an output terminal which indicates that the is ready to accept a transmitted data character. In “synchronous mode,” the terminal is at high level, if transmit data characters are no longer uzart and sync characters are automatically transmitted. If a status word is read, the terminal will be reset. In “synchronous mode,” the baud rate is the same as the frequency of RXC.
