Latest release:2.1.0rc6
Description:Inline libraries for various simple uart implementations
Status:(module_uart): Design Ready
Status:(module_uart_fast): Example
Maintainer:Dan Wilkinson (github: djpwilk)

Key Features

Generic UART

module_uart_rx module_uart_tx

  • Inline library that assumes RX and TX in separate threads
  • Baud Rates up to 115.2K, any combination of bits per byte, parity, stop bits
  • configurable buffer sizes
  • An XSIM testbench and demo appliction for the XK-1A is included.

Simple/Fast UART

module_uart_fast_rx module_uart_fast_tx

  • Needs thread for transmission and another for reception
  • Fixed to 8 bits per byte, single start bit, no parity, single stop bit.
  • All of these parameters can be changed by editing the module.
  • The baud rate is parameterisable, but has to be a whole division of 100 MHz.
  • 10 MBaud is achievable in a 100 MIPS thread
  • Includes an XK-1A demo application
