8051/8032 Assembler course (7):
SERIAL INTERFACE PROGRAMMING
Perhaps unwittingly, you have been using the serial communication features of the 8051 or 8032, and the supporting routines contained in the system monitor, EMON51, ever since the 80C32 singleboard computer (our 'course hardware') wrote its first 'welcome' message on your terminal. In this course instalment we will explore the not-so-simple operation of the serial interface with an aim to grasp the way it is programmed.
