UART

Integrates MAC IP to a broad range of PHY and SerDes IP

Overview

A Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitter (UART) processor is a hardware device used for asynchronous serial communication in which the data format and transmission speeds are configurable. UART is commonly used in microcontrollers and computer systems for serial communication with peripheral devices such as sensors, modems, and other microcontrollers.

Features

  • Asynchronous Communication: Operates without a clock signal, using start and stop bits to synchronise data transmission.
  • Configurable Data Format: Data Format: Supports multiple baud rates, data bits (5-9), parity bits (even, odd, none), and stop bits (1 or 2).
  • Full-Duplex Communication: Allows for simultaneous transmission and reception of data.
  • Error Detection: Includes parity bit error detection and frame error detection to ensure reliable data communication.
  • Flow Control: Supports hardware (RTS/CTS) and software (XON/XOFF) flow control to manage data flow and prevent buffer overflow.
  • Interrupt Support: Generates interrupts for various events, such as data ready, transmission complete, and error detection, enabling efficient handling by the processor.
  • FIFO Buffers: Utilises FIFO (First-In-First-Out) buffers to temporarily store transmitted and received data, ensuring smooth data flow and reducing processor overhead.
  • Low Power Consumption: Designed to operate efficiently with low power consumption, making it suitable for battery-powered and low-power applications.
