USART description. The Intel chip integrates a standard (8-bit) microprocessor bus interface, one serial transmitter, and one serial receiver. universal synchronous asynchronous receiver transmitter (USART) acts as a mediator between microprocessor and peripheral to transmit serial data into. USART. It is possible to use either of the two methods. There are special IC chips COM port in the original IBM PC uses UART; INTEL has USART

This process will waste the precious time of the CPU.

Intel 8251

Newer Post Older Post Home. In a microprocessor system the CPU has to perform the data conversion like serial to parallel or parallel to serial and transmit the data to peripheral devices. The CPU reads its condition by Status read operation. When the input register loads a parallel data to buffer register, the RxRDY line goes high.

The Modem control signals are general purpose in nature and can be used for functions other than the Modem control if necessary. It can be set low by programming the appropriate bit in the command instruction word. This is an output signal which is also a general purpose. This output signal is normally used to control the Modem operations such as Request to send.

This signal is general purpose in nature. DTR Data Terminal ready: The Modem sends certain hand shake signals for proper communication between two devices. When the reset is high, it forces A into the idle mode.

This pin can be set low by programming the appropriate bit in the command instruction word. This signal is used to normally test the Modem condition.

The clock frequency can be 1, 16 or 64 times the baud rate. The CPU reads the parallel data from the buffer register.


This receives parallel data from the CPU and transmits serial data after conversion. If the line is still low, then the input register accepts the following bits, forms a character and loads it into the buffer register.

RTS Request to Send: CTS Clear to Send: If buffer register is empty, then Uszrt is goes to high. A low on this pin enables the to transmit the serial data, if the Tx EN bit in the command byte is set to one.

This chip will take care of all the communication activities and lessens the burden of the Microprocessor. The Usatr signal is used to control the modem operation such as Data terminal ready or rate select.

When output register is empty, the data is transferred from buffer to output register. Now the processor can again load another data in buffer register. It consists of three registers, 8-bit data buffer register, one bit control word register and one 8-bit status word register. The clock input is necessary for A for communication with CPU and this clock does lntel control either the serial transmission or the reception rate.
