Serial Communications
1010602Serial CommunicationsSerial communication interfaces are commonly used to exchange data with other computers. Serial interfaces are ubiquitous, because they are economical to implement over long distances as a result of their requirement of relatively few wires. Many types of serial interfaces have been developed, with speeds ranging to billions of bits per second. Regardless of the bit rate, serial communication interfaces share many common traits. This chapter introduces the fundamentals of serial communication in the context of popular data links such as RS-232 and RS-485 in which bandwidths and components lend themselves to bas…
