Notes:
• Module RXD and TXD connected directly to hardware USART of microcontroller.
• Switches on baud rate selection pins (BR1, BR2 and BR3) are for ease of use only. They can be
connected directly to the logic level of interest.
• RTS can be connected to an interrupt pin for convenience in some applications. (Interrupt pins
located on Port 1&2 on the MSP430F1232)

Please note that Byte flow control assumes that the Host contains synchronous communication hardware
which can be configured for synchronous slave communication. Bit flow control can be used by all micro-
controllers. It is especially useful for microcontrollers that offer no HW serial interface, and which require
the serial interface to be emulated in software on the Host MCU.
