Abstract : An input-output converter permits the integration of terminals and transmit and receive equipments that operate at given logic voltage levels and character formats into communications system that operate at different logic voltage levels and character formats. The input-output converter includes a universal asynchronous receiver transmitter that converts m bit serial data into n bit parallel data in a receive mode an n bit parallel data to m bit serial data in a transmit mode while stripping and adding asynchronous start-stop bits. The input-output converter also includes logic voltage level converters that convert digital data to appropriate logic voltage levels for each function. (Author)
