Serial Port Line Configuration

Serial Port Line Configuration

Top  Previous  Next

On platforms with unidirectional GPIO lines, serial port lines (or GPIO lines to which serial port lines are mapped) require proper configuration whenever the serial port is in use. The amount of "work you need to do manually" depends on the mode of the serial port (see ser.mode).



TX/W1out/dout output

RX/W1in/din input

RTS/W0out/cout output

CTS/W0&1in/cin input

1. This line does not require configuration, it will be configured automatically as input or output when the port is opened. When the port is closed the line will return to the input/output and high/low state it had before the port was opened.

2.If RTS/CTS remapping is supported, you need to configure the I/O pin to which this line of the serial port is currently mapped.
