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

DTR Data Terminal ready: The CPU reads its condition by Status read operation. Now the processor 821 again load another data in buffer register.

Intel 8251

Newer Post Older Post Home. The Modem control signals are general purpose in nature and can be used for functions other than the Modem control if necessary.

In a microprocessor system the CPU has to perform the data conversion like serial to parallel usadt parallel to serial and transmit the data to peripheral devices.

This pin can be set low by programming the appropriate bit in the command instruction word. This process will waste the precious time of the CPU. CTS Clear to Send: This chip will take care of all the communication activities and lessens the burden of the Microprocessor.

It can be set low by programming the appropriate bit in the command instruction lntel. When the input register loads a parallel data to buffer register, the RxRDY line goes high. This receives parallel data from the CPU and transmits serial data after conversion.

When output register is empty, the data is transferred from buffer to output register.

The DTR signal is used to control the modem operation such as Data terminal ready or rate select. The clock input is necessary for A for communication with CPU and this clock does not control either the serial transmission or the reception rate.


imtel RTS Request to Send: The CPU reads the parallel data from the buffer register. The clock frequency can be 1, 16 or 64 times the baud rate. This output signal is normally used to control the Modem operations such as Request to send.


This signal is general purpose in nature. If the line is still low, then the input register accepts the following bits, forms a character and loads it into the buffer register. This signal is used to normally test the Modem condition.

The Modem sends certain hand shake signals for proper communication between two devices. If buffer register is empty, then TxRDY 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. It consists of three registers, 8-bit data buffer register, one bit control word register and one 8-bit status word register.

When the reset is high, it forces A into the idle mode. This is an output signal which is also a general purpose.
