adsp 21364 UART mode

Started by cee4max December 5, 2007
I am using ADSP 21364 processor for audio processsing application.

For interfacing ADSP21364 to system USB is used.FT232R (USB to UART

convertor) is used for that purpose.Serial port of ADSP21364 is used for

USB interface.But in application note EE191 its given than serial port

in UART mode,the processor has to poll the serial frame sync pin in each

serial clock signal.Is it mean the core is idle in these condition?

Can the processor be used for some other purpose during this period?

It would be much easier to use an ADSP-21369 or ADSP-21371 since there
is a hardware UART on the device. We usually use the FT245R with the
SHARC and avoid the UART altogether. In this situation, we still treat
the USB as a fast com port on the PC side.
