PL2303 USB to UART Converter

Getting Started with PL2303 USB to UART Converter

USB to UART Converter is a very useful tool for Embedded Systems. If you haven’t one, please try to buy it. It will definitely boost development speed of projects which uses UART modules like interfacing GSM, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi …  By using it we can easily study these modules by sending data directly from your PC and analyzing the received data in your computer display without programming a microcontroller. Here we will use PL2303, one of the most popular [...]

UART Communication

Using UART of PIC Microcontroller – Hi Tech C

UART stands for Universal Asynchronous Receiver / Transmitter. It is a serial communication interface which uses two lines for sending (TX) and receiving (RX) data. As its name indicates it is an asynchronous communication interface, which means it doesn’t need to send clock along with it as in synchronous communications. UART is the communication standard of our old computer’s RS-232 serial port. Most of the Microchip’s PIC Microcontrollers have built in USART Module. USART stands for Universal Synchronous Asynchronous [...]
