CHAPTER 10ASYNCHRONOUS AND SYNCHRONOUS SERIAL I/O

This chapter discusses some of the serial interfaces available on the PIC24 μC: the Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART), the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), and the Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) bus. The protocols and operational modes of these three interfaces are discussed in detail along with interfacing examples to different external devices. Chapter 13 discusses the more complex Controller Area Network (CAN) serial protocol.
