\ Serial port target code - no interrupts.
\ There are two versions of the serial port hardware. Older 8-bit
\ version as present in the 3-digit chips, and the newr 16-bit version
\ as present in the 4-digit chips.
\ The newer architecture is backwards compatible with these extra features:
\ - TXSTA SENDB
\ - BAUDCTL
\ - 16bit baud gen (default is 8 bit)
\ - autobaud
\ Note that for high clock rates and low baud rates, this needs a
\ 16bit baud rate generator (or using the 64 division instead of 16)
\ driver code
RCSTA CREN low
RCSTA CREN high : async.overrun? RCSTA OERR high? : async.frame? RCSTA FERR high? forth
: async.rx-ready? PIR1 RCIF high? : async.tx-ready? TXSTA TRMT high? forth
begin async.rx-ready? until
begin async.tx-ready? until TXREG !
\ send out all ones, which gives a pattern 0 11111111 1... which can
\ be easily measured with a frequency counter to see if the rate is
\ right. frequency = baud rate / 10
