This generated high rates of interrupts as transfer speeds increased. Views Read Edit View history.

More critically, with only a 1-byte buffer there is a genuine risk that a received byte will be overwritten if interrupt service delays occur. To overcome these shortcomings, the series UARTs incorporated a byte FIFO buffer with a programmable interrupt trigger datasueet 1, 4, 8, or 14 bytes. The original had a bug that prevented this FIFO from being used.


The C and CF models are okay too, according to this source.

Exchange of the having only a one-byte received data buffer with aand occasionally patching or setting system software to be aware of the FIFO feature of the new chip, improved the reliability and stability of high-speed connections.

The A and newer is pin compatible with the Not all manufacturers adopted this nomenclature, however, continuing to refer to the fixed chip as a From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The corrected -A version was released in by National Semiconductor.

The A F version was a must-have to use modems with a data transmit rate of baud. The part was originally made by National Semiconductor. At speeds higher than baudowners discovered that the 116450 ports of the computers were not able to handle a continuous flow of data without losing characters.

The current version since by Texas Instruments which bought National Semiconductor is called the D. The also incorporates a transmit FIFO, though this feature is less critical as delays in interrupt datashedt would only result in sub-optimal transmission speeds and not actual data loss.


Dropouts occurred with Similarly numbered devices, with varying levels of compatibility with the original National Semiconductor part, are made by other manufacturers.

National Semiconductor later released the A which corrected this issue. Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses. Retrieved from ” https:
