Although most PCs nowadays have dispensed with the traditional serial interface, it is still widely used in the microcontroller world. This interface was originally developed to transfer serial data over a conductor. The individual bits obediently travel down the wire one after the other. The bit timing is precisely defined so that the receiver can make sense of the serial bit stream.
