This is a relatively “new” register that was not a part of the original UART implementation.

Before we leave the subject of the PIC, I’d like to cover the concept of device masking. Some serial terminals have a key which make them generate this “break condition” as an out-of-band signaling method.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Bits 0 and 1 set the word length. We still havn’t identified between theA, or B; but that is rather pointless anyway on most current computers as it is very unlikely to even find one of those chips because of their age. Of these, identification of why the interrupt service routine has been invoked is perhaps the most important.

In this mode any data which is placed in the transmitter registers for output is received by the receiver circuitry on the same chip and is available at the receiver buffer. Overrun errors Bit 1 are a sign of poor programming or an operating system that is not giving you proper access to the UART.

In fact, if you are reading this text on a PC, in the time that it takes for you to read this sentence several interrupt handlers have already been used by your computer. It has a 16 byte buffer, however it doesn’t work and is replaced with the A. Finally we are starting to write a little bit of software, and there is more to come. When programming in higher level languages, it gets a bit simpler.

Except for these diagnostics purposes and for some early development testing of software using the UART, this will never be used. Data sheets are available in. If multiple interrupts for the same UART have been triggered, either it won’t clear the interrupt signal on the CPU triggering a new hardware interrupt when you are done datwsheet, or if you check back to this register IIR and query the Interrupt Pending Flag to see if there are datashewt interrupts to process, you can move on and attempt to resolve any new interrupt issue that you may have to deal with, using appropriate application code.


How this is best done depends largely on your operating system. The UART will have a crystal which should oscillate around 1. 850 it is “1”, that means the interrupt has already been processed or this particular UART was not the triggering device.

Signal Ground SG must also be connected so both grounds are common to each computer. If you are doing some custom equipment using this chip, datashert National Semiconductor spec sheets allow for a 3.

Serial Programming/8250 UART Programming

Some modem manufacturers quote a maximum compression ratio as 1: While this is useful, and can change some of the logic on how you would write UART control software, the is comparatively new as a chip and not commonly found on many computer systems. Of limited use is the fact that you can use this register to identify specific variations of the UART because the original did not store the data sent to it through this register.

On earlier chip types this is a daatasheet bit and should be kept in a logical “0” state. More will be written about this subject in another module when we get to data flow control. In effect, uaart gives you one extra byte of “memory” that you can use in your applications datashert any way that you find useful. There are easier ways to do this, but in this case it might save you an extra chip on your layout. This can be done using a UART.

The Scratch Register is an interesting enigma.

This issue would generally only show up when you are using more than the typical 2 or 4 serial COM ports on a PC. When the modem detects a “Carrier” from the modem at the other end of the phone line, this Line becomes active.


I’ll cover more of that later when we get into the actual software to access the serial data ports, but for now remember not to write your software strictly for one device. The Transmitter Holding Register Empty Interrupt is to let you know that the output buffer on more advanced models of the chip like the has finished sending everything that you pushed into the buffer. Operates comfortably at Bits 5,6 and 7 are reserved. Good programming habits suggest you should still try to set this to zero even if all you are doing is running at higher baud rates.

For most serial data transmission, this will be 8 bits, but you will find some of the earlier protocols and older equipment that will require fewer data bits.

Interfacing The Serial / RS Port

Keep in mind that it is at least possible for more than one device to trigger an interrupt at the same time, so when you are doing this scanning of serial devices, make sure you examine all of them, even one of the first devices did in fact need to be processed. Each time dataheet bit is sent, a count-down register is reset to this value and then counts down to zero. This shift register is an internal memory block within the UART that grabs data from the Transmitter Holding Buffer THB or the FIFO and is the circuitry that does the actual transformation of the data to a serial format, sending out one bit urt the data at a time and “shifting” the contents of the shift register down one bit to get the value of the next bit.

The break interrupt Bit 4 occurs when the received data line is held in a logic state ‘0’ Space for more than the time it takes to send a full word.
