Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART)

The Cadence® Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter IP provides full duplex serial to parallel translation operations with configurable FIFOs. The controller supports a wide range of software programmable baud rates and data formats.

Benefits

  • Low pin count
  • Easy system integration with native 32-bit ARM® AMBA® APB bus support
  • Enables adoption of various asynchronous communication standards

The Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter IP provides full duplex operation with configurable FIFOs on both transmit and receive. A modem interface is provided allowing connection to many popular modem devices.
