Thanks for the link - but my problem is the receiving side. What will
happen when a RXD programmed for 8 bit receives only 7 bits?
Will it be sufficient to mask the 8 bits with 7Fh (0111 1111) to get the
seven relevant bits?
Thanks for your support
I think it should be OK if you mask with 7Fh. It should receive OK, if byte to byte time from the transmitter is more than two bits or three bits wide in time.
