RS232 speedometer
Serial ports are frequently used for long-distance communication between computer equipment. The speed at which data is conveyed on such a link is called the baud rate, a figure indicating the number of bits transmitted per second. Unfortunately, in practice there are often gross differences between the programmed and the actually achieved data speed. The circuit described here measures the actual speed of RS232 data.
