Overview of Serial Communication Standards

  Asynchronous Communications Overview Asynchronous communications is the standard means of serial data communication for PC compatibles and PS/2 computers. Serial data communications implies that individual bits of a character are transmitted consecutively to a receiver that assembles the bits back into a character. Data rate, error checking, handshaking, and character framing (start and stop […]

SeaMAC Software Overview

  SeaMAC Software Windows Synchronous Serial Drivers SeaMAC Overview  The SeaMAC driver supports numerous protocols and communication methods. Certain protocols are defined well enough to allow the driver to completely handle the protocol internally. Other protocols have so many variations that creating a general driver for all cases is not practical. Sealevel’s philosophy is to […]
