multiprotocol combo: HDLC, UART, SPI... with bigger FIFO and...


DMESCCDual channel Multiprotocol Enhanced Serial Communication Controller, is designed for use with 8- and 16- bit microprocessors.
DMESCC handles asynchronous formats, synchronous byte-oriented protocols such as IBM® Bisync, and synchronous bit-oriented protocols such as HDLC and SDLC. The device can generate and check CRC codes in any synchronous mode and can be programmed to check data integrity in various modes. The DMESCC also has facilities for modem control in both channels.

The user can configure DMESCC to handle all asynchronous formats regardless of data size, number of stop bits, or parity requirements. Control is done through the number of control and status registers for each channel separately. Within each operating mode, the DMESCC also allows for protocol variations by checking odd or even parity bits, character insertion or deletion, CRC generation, checking break and abort generation and detection, and many other protocol-dependent features.

  • The ultimate functionality of DMESCC denotes its usability:
    as a data communications device, DMESCC transmits and receives data in a wide variety of data communication protocols.
  • as a microprocessor peripheral, it offers valuable features such as vectored interrupts, polling, and simple handshake capability.

The DMESCC provides two independent full-duplex channels, programmable for use in any standard asynchronous or synchronous data communication protocol. In Asynchronous mode transmission and reception can be accomplished independently on each channel with 5 to 8 bits per character, plus optional even or odd parity. The transmitters can supply one, one-and-half, or two stop bits per character and can provide a break output at any time. The receiver break-detection logic interrupts the CPU.
