Overview

The D16450 is a soft core of the Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART), functionally identical to the TL16C450. It performs serial-to-parallel conversion on data characters received from a peripheral device or a MODEM, but also parallel-to-serial conversion on data characters received from the CPU. The CPU can read a complete status of the UART at any time, during the functional operation. Reported information status includes the type and a condition of transfer operations being performed by the UART, as well as any error conditions (parity, overrun, framing or break interrupt). The D16450 includes a programmable baud rate generator, which is capable of dividing the timing reference clock input by divisors of 1 to (216-1), and producing a 16 clock for driving the internal transmitter logic. Provisions are also included to use this 16 clock to drive the receiver logic. Our proprietary solution has also complete MODEM control capability and a processor-interrupt system
