UART RS232 Flow control

Post by Lawrence_Miranda »

I have never used Flow control in the past. Send/receive has always been 1 or 2 bytes. Now I need it. How do you select control pins. Chip is 16LF1825. Do I just select any available i/o pins or is their more stringent rules to follow?

Hi Lawrence_Miranda,

I believe you can just use any IO Pins that can be configured as an Input or Output.

Under Properties of UART you can select the "Use Flow Control" to be "On" and the RTS and CTS pins will be available and can be changed.

Hope this helps as I have not use them before, just based on my understanding.

Regards.
