The part was originally made by National Semiconductor. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. To overcome these shortcomings, the series UARTs incorporated a byte FIFO buffer with a programmable interrupt trigger of 1, 4, 8, or 14 bytes.

This generated high rates of interrupts as transfer speeds increased. Not all manufacturers adopted this nomenclature, however, continuing to refer to the fixed chip as uarh Exchange of the having only a one-byte received data buffer with aand occasionally patching or setting system software to be aware of the FIFO feature of the new chip, improved the reliability and stability of high-speed connections.

More critically, with only a 1-byte buffer there is a genuine risk that a received byte will be overwritten if interrupt service delays occur. Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses. The A and newer is pin compatible with the Interfaces are listed by their speed in the roughly ascending order, so the interface at the end of each section should be the fastest.

Views Read Edit View history. The A F version was a must-have to use modems with a data transmit rate of baud. The original had a bug that prevented this FIFO from being used. Similarly numbered devices, with varying levels of compatibility with the original National Semiconductor part, are made by other manufacturers.

The corrected -A version was released in by National Datasheeh. National Semiconductor later released the A which corrected this issue. At speeds higher than baudowners discovered that the serial ports of the computers were not able to handle a continuous flow of data without losing characters.

The current version since by Texas Instruments which bought National Semiconductor is called the D.
