The Serial Port is harder to interface than the Parallel Port.

In most cases, any device you connect to the serial port will need the serial transmission converted back to parallel so that it can be used. This can be done using a UART. On the software side of things, there are many more registers that you have to attend to than on a Standard Parallel Port. Serial Cables can be longer than Parallel cables. Therefore the serial port can have a maximum swing of 50V compared to the parallel port which has a maximum swing of 5 Volts.

Therefore cable loss is not going to be as much of a problem for serial cables than they are for parallel. You don’t need as many wires than parallel transmission.

If your device needs to be mounted a far distance away from the computer then 3 core cable Null Modem Configuration is going to be a lot cheaper that running 19 or 25 core cable. However you must take into account the cost of the interfacing at each end. Infra Red devices have proven quite popular recently.

Serial Programming/8250 UART Programming

You may of seen many electronic diaries and palmtop computers which have infra red capabilities build in. However could you imagine transmitting 8 bits uaet data at the one time across the room and being able to from the devices point of view decipher which bits are which?

Therefore serial transmission is used where one bit is sent at a time. IrDA-1 The first infra red specifications was capable of Microcontroller’s have also proven to be quite popular recently. Serial Communication reduces the pin count of these MPU’s. Source Code – Termpoll. Devices which use serial cables for their communication are split into two categories. It states many parameters such as. Above is no where near a complete list of the EIA standard. Line Capacitance, Maximum Uarr Rates etc are also included.

A new standard, RSD has been recently released. Serial Ports come in two “sizes”, There are the D-Type 25 pin connector and the D-Type 9 pin connector both of which are male on the back of the PC, thus you will require a female connector on your device. Below is a table of pin connections for the 9 pin and 25 pin D-Type connectors. This is commonly used as a cheap way to network games or to transfer files between computers using Zmodem Protocol, Xmodem Protocol etc.

This can also be used with many Microprocessor Development Systems. Null Modem Wiring Diagram. Above is my preferred method of wiring a Null Modem.

The theory of operation is reasonably easy. The aim is to make to computer think it is talking to a modem rather than another computer.

Any data transmitted from the first computer must be received by the second thus TD is connected to RD. The second computer must have the same set-up thus RD is connected to TD. Signal Ground SG must also be connected so both grounds are common to each computer.


At this point the computer thinks the Virtual Modem to which it is datashete is ready and has detected the carrier of the other modem. As both computers communicate together at the same speed, flow control is not needed thus these two lines are also linked together on each computer. When the computer wishes to send uqrt, it asserts the Request to Send high and as it’s hooked together with the Clear to Send, It immediately gets a reply that it is ok to send and does so.

Notice that the ring indicator is not connected to anything of each end. This line is only used to tell the computer that there is a ringing signal on the phone line. As we don’t have a modem connected to the phone line this is left disconnected. It has the receive and transmit lines connected together, so that anything transmitted out of the Serial Port is immediately received by the same port.

If you connect this to a Serial Port an load a Terminal Program, anything you type will be immediately displayed on the screen. Datashset can be used with the examples later in this tutorial.

Please datashet that this is not intended for use with Diagnostic Programs and thus will probably not work. For these programs you require a differently wired Loop Back plug which may vary from program to program. DTE to DCE is the speed between your modem and computer, sometimes referred to as your terminal speed.

UART – Wikipedia

Datadheet people today will have However they see 9. Today’s Modems should have Data Compression build into them.

When set up correctly you can expect compression ratios of 1: If we 2850 transferring that text file at Some modem manufacturers quote a maximum compression ratio as 1: Urat say for example its on a new If you only have a a which can doBPS tops, then you would be missing out on a extra bit of performance.

Buying a 16C should fix your problem with a maximum transfer rate ofBPS. However don’t abuse your modem if you don’t get these rates. In some instances if you try to send a already compressed file, your modem can spend more time trying the compress it, thus you get a transmission speed less than your modem’s connection speed. If this occurs try turning off your data compression.

This should be fixed on newer modems. Some files compress easier than others thus any file which compresses easier is naturally going to have a higher compression ratio.

Sooner or later data is going to get lost as buffers overflow, thus flow control is used. Flow control has two basic varieties, Hardware or Software. The modem will only have a small buffer so when the computer fills satasheet up the modem sends a Xoff character to tell the computer to stop sending data.

Once the modem has room for more data it then sends a Xon character and the computer sends more data. However on slow links each character requires 10 bits which can slow communications down. It uses two wires in your serial cable rather than extra characters transmitted in your data lines.


Thus hardware flow control will not slow down transmission times like Xon-Xoff does. When ddatasheet computer wishes to send datwsheet it takes active the Request to Send line. If the modem has room for this data, then the modem will reply by taking active the Clear to Send line and the computer starts sending data. If the modem does not have the room then it will not send a Clear to Send. Its the little datasheeg of tricks found on your serial card which plays datashfet little games with your modem or other connected devices.

Most cards will have the UART’s integrated into other chips which may also control your parallel port, games port, floppy or hard disk drives and are typically surface mount devices. Later we will look at other types which can be used in your homemade devices and projects. On the Pin 24 was chip select out which functioned only as a indicator to if the chip was active or not.

The introduced two new datashet in their place. These Pins have two different modes of operation. Mode 0 is also called the mode.

Therefore RS Level Converters which we talk about in detail later are used. If you look at your serial card a common crystal found is either a 1. This clock will be used for the Programmable Baud Rate Generator which directly interfaces datasheeet the transmit timing circuits but not directly into the receiver timing circuits.

For this an external connection mast be made from pin 15 BaudOut to pin 9 Receiver clock in.

Data sheets are available in. Above is the standard port addresses.

These should work for most P. Each address will take up 2 bytes. The following sample program in C, shows how you can read these locations to obtain the addresses ratasheet your communications ports.

You will have noticed in the table of registers that there is a DLAB column. When DLAB is set to ‘0’ or ‘1’ some of the registers change. This is how the UART is able to have 12 registers uary the scratch register through only 8 dqtasheet addresses. When DLAB is set to ‘1’ via the line control register, two registers become available from which you can set your speed of communications measured in bits per second.

The Dataseet will have a crystal which should oscillate around 1. The UART incorporates a divide by 16 counter which simply divides the incoming clock signal by Assuming we had the 1. That would be fine for some of the faster modems and devices which can handle that speed, but others just wouldn’t communicate at all. Lets say for example we only wanted to communicate at BPS. We worked out that we would have to divideby 48 to get a workable Hertz Clock.

The “Divisor”, in this case 48, is stored in datashedt two registers controlled by the “Divisor Latch Access Bit”. This divisor can be any number which can be stored in 16 bits ie 0 to The UART only has a 8 bit data bus, thus this is where the two registers are used.
