Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter
Universal Asynchronous Receiver/TransmitterA universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART) is a digital communication protocol for two or more devices. We will focus only on UART communication between two devices in this book. Hence, one device will be the transmitter; the other will be the receiver. Communication is done by sending and receiving data asynchronously between the transmitter and receiver. Being asynchronous, the UART does not need a common clock between the transmitter and receiver. Thus, connected devices can work independently. The serial pin of the transmitter is generally called transmit (TX). The corresponding receiver pin is generally called receive (RX). The connection between the transmitter and receiver is established …
