What are the advantages of using an advanced UART?

Posted on   •  Updated on


The primary benefit of a 16850 UART (standard on most Sealevel products) is a 128-byte FIFO buffer that prevents data loss in high-speed serial communications.

The optional 16950 UART provides the following benefits:

  • 8x more baud rates due to 1/8th clock prescalar
  • 128-byte FIFO buffer
  • 9-bit protocol support
  • Isochronous mode
