How to Get Expected Baud Rate of LIN-UART for FR81S – KBA221316

Version: **



The configured LIN-UART baud rate 1.2 kps is not accurate when peripheral clock is 40 MHz. Why and how to get the expected baud rate?



The LIN-UART baud rate is generated from a 15-bit reload counter, by setting a value to baud rate generator register (BGR). For a baud rate of 1.2 kps, the reload value for BGR is 0x8234 ((40*10^6/1200)-1), which violates the maximum value of a 15-bit counter 0x7FFF. To get the expected baud rate, select the available clock frequency and BGR value as listed in Table 1.
