GENERAL DESCRIPTION
FEATURES
The XR17D1541 (D154) is a quad PCI Bus Universal
Asynchronous Receiver and Transmitter (UART) with
same package and pin-out as the Exar XR17C158,
XR17D158 and XR17C154. The device is designed
to meet today’s 32-bit PCI Bus and high bandwidth
requirement in communication systems. The global
interrupt source register provides a complete interrupt
status indication for all 4 channels to speed up
interrupt parsing. Each UART is independently
controlled and has its own 16C550 compatible 5G
register set, transmit and receive FIFOs of 64 bytes,
fully programmable transmit and receive FIFO trigger
levels, transmit and receive FIFO level counters,
automatic hardware flow control with programmable
hysteresis, automatic software (Xon/Xoff) flow
control, IrDA (Infrared Data Association) encoder/
decoder, 8 multi-purpose inputs/outputs and a 16-bit
general purpose timer/counter.

UNIVERSAL (3.3V AND 5V) PCI BUS QUAD UART
REV. 1.2.0
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
The XR17D154 (D154) integrates the functions of 4 enhanced 16550 UARTs with the PCI Local Bus interface
and a non-volatile memory interface for PCI bus’s plug-and-play auto-configuration, a 16-bit timer/counter, 8
multi-purpose inputs/outputs, and an on-chip oscillator. The PCI local bus is a synchronous timing bus where
all bus transactions are associated to the bus clock of up to 33 MHz. The D154 supports 32-bit wide read and
write data transfer operations including data burst mode through the PCI Local Bus interface. Read and write
data operations maybe in byte, word or double-word (DWORD) format. The data transfer rate in a DWORD
operation is 4 times faster than the single byte operation with 8-bit ISA bus. A single 32-bit interrupt status
register provides interrupts status for all 4 UARTs, timer/counter, multipurpose inputs/outputs, and a special
sleep wake up indicator. There are three sets of register in the device. First, the PCI local bus configuration
registers for PCI auto configuration. A set of device configuration registers for overall control, 32-bit wide
transmit and receive data transfer, and monitoring of the 4 UART channels. Lastly, each UART channel has its
own 16550 UART compatible configuration register set for individual channel control, status, and byte wide
data transfer.
Each UART has the improved fifth generation (5G) register set, 64-byte FIFOs, automatic RTS/CTS or DTR/
DSR hardware flow control with hysteresis control, automatic Xon/Xoff and special character software flow
control, programmable transmit and receive FIFO trigger level, FIFO level counters, infrared encoder and
decoder (IrDA ver 1.0), programmable baud rate generator with a prescaler of 1X or 4X, and data rate up to
6.25 Mbps. The XR17D154 bus timing and drive capability meets the PCI local bus specification revision 2.3
for 3.3V and 5V at 33.34 MHz over the temperature range. The XR17D154 is available in the same thin 144pin TQFP (20x20x1.4mm) package and pin-out as the XR17C154, XR17D158 and XR17C158 in commercial
and industrial temperature ranges.
PCI LOCAL BUS INTERFACE
This is the host interface and it meets the PCI Local Bus Specification revision 2.3. The PCI local bus
operations are synchronous meaning each transaction is associated to the bus clock. The XR17D154 can
operate with the bus clock of up to a 33.34 MHz. Data transfers operation can be formatted in 8-bit, 16-bit, 24bit or 32-bit wide. With 32-bit data operations, it pushes the data transfer rate on the bus up to 132 MByte/sec.
This increases the overall system’s communication performance up to 16 times better than the 8-bit ISA bus.
See PCI local bus specification revision 2.3 for bus operation details.
PCI LOCAL BUS CONFIGURATION SPACE REGISTERS
A set of PCI local bus configuration space register is provided. These registers provide the PCI local bus
operating system with the card’s vendor ID, device ID, sub-vendor ID, product model number, and resources
and capabilities. The PCI local bus operating system collects this data from all the cards on the bus during the
auto configuration phase that follows immediately after a power up or system reset/reboot. After it has sorted
out all devices on the bus, it defines and download the operating conditions to the cards. One of the definitions
is the base address loaded into the Base Address Register (BAR) where the card will be operating in the PCI
local bus memory space.
EEPROM INTERFACE
An external 93C46 EEPROM is only used to store the vendor’s ID and model number, and the sub-vendor’s ID
and product model number. This information is only used with the plug-and-play auto configuration of the PCI
local bus. These data provide automatic hardware installation onto the PCI bus. The EEPROM interface
consists of 4 signals, EEDI, EEDO, EECS, and EECK. The EEPROM is not needed when auto configuration is
not required in the application. However, If your design requires non-volatile memory for other purpose. It is
possible to store and retrieve data on the EEPROM through a special PCI device configuration register. See
application note DAN112 for its programming details.

1.0 APPLICATION EXAMPLES
The XR17D154 is designed to operate with VCC (voltage to the UART Core Logic) greater than or equal to
VIO. See Table 1 below for valid combintions of VCC and VIO that can be used with the device..

For a universal add-in card, it is usually unknown whether it will be plugged into a 3.3V or 5V PCI slot, therefore
VCC must be 5V to guarantee proper functionality in any PCI slot as shown in Figure 3. In an embedded
system, the designer can choose to use a 3.3V or 5V power supply for the UART core voltage. Of course, the
core voltage can be 3.3V only when the VIO is 3.3V. In Figure 4, examples 1-3 show valid applications of the
XR17D154 in an embedded system.

2.0 XR17D154 REGISTERS
The XR17D154 UART has three different sets of registers as shown in Figure 5. The PCI local bus
configuration space registers are for plug-and-play auto-configuration when connecting the device to the PCI
bus. This auto-configuration feature makes installation very easy into a PCI system and it is part of the PCI
local bus specification. The second register set is the device configuration registers that are accessible directly
from the PCI bus for programming general operating conditions of the device and monitoring the status of
various functions. These registers are mapped into 2K of the PCI bus memory address space. These functions
include all 4 channel UART’s interrupt control and status, 16-bit general purpose timer control and status,
multipurpose inputs/outputs control and status, sleep mode, soft-reset, and device identification and revision.
And lastly, each UART channel has its own set of 5G internal UART configuration registers for its own
operation control and status reporting. All 4 sets of channel registers are embedded inside the device
configuration registers space, which provides faster access. The following paragraphs describe all 3 sets of
registers in detail.

PCI LOCAL BUS CONFIGURATION SPACE REGISTERS
The PCI local bus configuration space registers are responsible for setting up the device’s operating
environment in the PCI local bus. The pre-defined operating parameters of the device are read by the PCI bus
plug-and-play auto-configuration manager in the operating system. After the PCI bus has collected all data
from every device/card on the bus, it defines and downloads the memory mapping information to each device/
card about their individual operation memory address location and conditions. The operating memory mapped
address location is downloaded into the Base Address Register (BAR) register, 0x10. The plug-and-play auto
configuration feature is only available when an external 93C46 EEPROM is used. The EEPROM contains the
device vendor and sub-vendor data required by the auto-configuration setup.

Device configuration Register Set
The device configuration registers and a special way to access each of the UART’s transmit and receive data
FIFOs are accessible directly from the PCI data bus. This provides easy programming of general operating
parameters to the D154 UART and for monitoring the status of various functions. The registers occupy 2K of
PCI bus memory address space. These addresses are offset onto the basic memory address, a value loaded
into the Memory Base Address Register (BAR) in the PCI local bus configuration register set. These registers
control or report on all 4 channel UARTs functions that include interrupt control and status, 16-bit general
purpose timer control and status, multipurpose inputs/outputs control and status, sleep mode control, soft-reset
control, and device identification and revision, and others.
The registers set is mapped into 4 address blocks where each UART channel occupies 512 bytes memory
space for its own 16550 compatible configuration registers. The device configuration and control registers are
embedded inside the UART channel zero’s address space between 0x0080 to 0x0093. All these registers can
be accessed in 8, 16, 24 or 32 bit width depending on the starting address given by the host at beginning of the
bus cycle. Transmit and receive data may be loaded or unloaded in 8, 16, 24 or 32 bit format to the register’s
address. Every time a read or write operation is made to the transmit or receive register, its FIFO data pointer
is automatically bumped to the next sequential data location either in byte, word or dword. One special case
applies to the receive data unloading when reading the receive data together with its LSR register content. The
host must read them in 16 or 32 bits format in order to maintain integrity of the data byte with its associated
error flags.

The Interrupt Status Register
The XR17D154 has a 32-bit wide register [INT0, INT1, INT2 and INT3] to provide interrupt information and
supports two interrupt schemes. The first scheme uses bits 0 to 3 of an 8-bit indicator (INT0) representing
channels 0 to 3 of the XR17D154, respectively. This permits the interrupt routine to quickly vector and serve
that UART channel and determine the source(s) in each individual routines. INT0 bit-0 represents the interrupt
status for UART channel 0 when its transmitter, receiver, line status, or modem port status requires service.
Other bits in the INT0 register provide indication for the other channels with bit-3 representing UART channel 4
respectively, bits 4 to 7 are reserved and remain at logic zero.
The second scheme provides detail about the source of the interrupts for each UART channel. All the
interrupts are encoded into a 3-bit code. This 3-bit code represents 7 interrupts corresponding to individual
UART’s transmitter, receiver, line status, modem port status. INT1 and INT2 registers provide the 12-bit
interrupt status for all 4 channels. Bits 8, 9 and 10 representing channel 0 and bits 17,18 and 19 representing
channel 3 respectively. Bits 20 to 31 are reserved and remain at logic zero. All 4 channel interrupts status are
available with a single DWORD read operation. This feature allows the host quickly vectors and serves the
interrupts, reducing service interval, hence, reduce host bandwidth requirement. Figure 6 shows the 4-byte
interrupt register and its make up.

INT0 [7:0]
A special interrupt condition is generated by the 154 when it wakes up from sleep mode. This special interrupt
is cleared by reading the INT0 register. If there are not any other interrupts pending, the value read from INT0
would be 0x00.
INT0 [7:0] Channel Interrupt Indicator
Each bit gives an indication of the channel that has requested for service. Bit-0 represents channel 0 and bit-3
indicates channel 3. Logic 1 indicates that a channel has called for service. Bits 4 to 7 are reserved and remain
at logic 0 The interrupt bit clears after reading the appropriate register of the interrupting channel register, see
Interrupt Clearing section.

priority order are shown below in Table 6 on page 16. The Timer and MPIO interrupts are for the device and
therefore they exist within channel 0 space (bits [10:8]) only.

crystal oscillator or externally on pin TMRCK. The timer can be set to be a single-shot for a one-time event or
re-triggerable for continue interval. An interrupt may be generated in the INT Register when the timer times out.
It is controlled through 4 configuration registers [TIMERCNTL, TIMER, TIMELSB, TIMERMSB]. These
registers provide start/stop and re-triggerable or one-shot operation. The time-out output of the Timer can be
set to generate an interrupt for system or event alarm.

Each UART can be separately enabled to enter Sleep mode through the Sleep register. Sleep mode reduces
power consumption when the system needs to put the UART(s) to idle. All of these conditions must be satisfied
for the D154 to enter sleep mode:
• no interrupts pending (INT0 = 0x00)
• divisor is a non-zero value for all channels (ie. DLL = 0x1)
• sleep mode is enabled (SLEEP = 0x0F)
• modem inputs for all channels are not toggling (MSR bits 0-3 = 0)
• RX input pins for all channels are idling HIGH
The D154 stops its crystal oscillator to conserve power in the sleep mode. User can check the XTAL2 pin for
no clock output as an indication that the device has entered the sleep mode.
The D154 resumes normal operation by any of the following:
• a receive data start bit transition (HIGH to LOW)
• a data byte is loaded to the transmitter, THR or FIFO
• a change of logic state on any of the modem or general purpose serial inputs: CTS#, DSR#, CD#, RI#
If the D154 is awakened by any one of the above conditions, it will return to the sleep mode automatically after
all interrupting conditions have been serviced and cleared. If the D154 is awakened by the modem inputs, a
read to the MSR is required to reset the modem inputs. In any case, the sleep mode will not be entered while
an interrupt is pending from any channel. The D154 will stay in the sleep mode of operation until it is disabled
by setting Sleep = 0x00. In this case, the quad UART is awaken by any of the UART channel from a receive
data byte or a change on the serial port. The UART is ready after 32 crystal clocks to ensure full functionality.
Also, a special interrupt is generated with an indication of no pending interrupt. Reading INT0 will clear this
special interrupt. Logic 0 (default) is disable and logic 1 is enable to sleep mode.
Important: The XR17D154 is a versatile device designed to operate with different VCC (core power supply)
and VIO(PCI bus I/O power supply). However, the VCC and VIO must be equal (VCC = VIO) for the sleep
mode to reduce power consumption. Any difference in these voltages will result in high currents, when placed
in sleep mode. If sleep mode is used, it is recommended that both VCC and VIO be powered by the PCI bus
VIO power pins. If sleep mode is not used, there is no concern about high currents whether VCC = VIO or VCC
> VIO. In any case, VCC should never be less than VIO.

Device Identification and Revision
There are two internal registers that provide device identification and revision, DVID and DREV registers. The
8-bit content in the DVID register provides device identification. A return value of 0x24 from this register
indicates the device is an XR17D154 or an XR17C154. The DREV register returns an 8-bit value of 0x01 for
revision A with 0x02 equals to revision B and so forth. This information is very useful to the software driver for
identifying which device it is communicating with and to keep up with revision changes.
DVID [15:8]
Device identification for the type of UART. The upper nibble indicates it is a XR17xxxx series with lower nibble
indicating the number of channels.
Examples:
XR17D158 or XR17C158 = 0x28
XR17D154 or XR17C154 = 0x24
XR17D152 or XR17C152 = 0x22
DREV [7:0]
Revision number of the XR17D154. A 0x01 represents "revision-A" with 0x02 for rev-B and so forth.
REGB [23:16] - (default 0x00)
REGB register provides a control for simultaneous write to all 4 UARTs configuration register or individually.
This is very useful for device initialization in the power up and reset routines. Also, the register provides a
facility to interface to the non-volatile memory device such as a 93C46 EEPROM. In embedded applications,
the user can use this facility to store proprietary data.

2.2.9
Multi-Purpose Inputs and Outputs
The D154 provides 8 multi-purpose inputs/outputs [MPIO7:0] for general use. Each pin can be programmed to
be an input or output function. The input logic state can be set for normal or inverted level, and optionally set to
generate an interrupt. The outputs can be set to be normal logic 1 or 0 state, or tri-state. Their functions and
definitions are programmed through 5 registers: MPIOINT, MPIOLVL, MPIO3T, MPIOINV and MPIOSEL. If all
8 pins are set for inputs, all 8 interrupts would be OR’ed together. The Or’ed interrupt is reported in the channel
0 UART interrupt status, see Interrupt Status Register. The pins may also be programmed to be outputs and to
the tri-state condition for signal sharing.

3.0 CRYSTAL OSCILLATOR / BUFFER
The D154 includes an on-chip oscillator (XTAL1 and XTAL2). The crystal oscillator provides the system clock
to the Baud Rate Generators (BRG) in each of the 4 UARTs, the 16-bit general purpose timer/counter and
internal logics. XTAL1 is the input to the oscillator or external clock buffer input with XTAL2 pin being the
output. Caution: The XTAL1 input is not 5V tolerant. See Programmable Baud Rate Generator in the UART
section for programming details.
The on-chip oscillator is designed to use an industry standard microprocessor crystal (parallel resonant with
10-22 pF capacitance load, 100ppm) connected externally between the XTAL1 and XTAL2 pins (see Figure 9).
Alternatively, an external clock can be connected to the XTAL1 pin to clock the internal 4 baud rate generators
for standard or custom rates. However, for external clock frequencies greater than 24MHz, a 2K pull-up may be
necessary on the XTAL2 output (see Figure 10). Typically, the oscillator connections are shown in Figure 9. For
further reading on oscillator circuit please see application note DAN108 on EXAR’s web site.

4.0 TRANSMIT AND RECEIVE DATA
There are two methods to load transmit data and unload receive data from each UART channel. First, there is
a transmit data register and receive data register for each UART channel in the device configuration register
set to ease programming. These registers support 8, 16, 24 and 32 bits wide format. In the 32-bit format, it
increases the data transfer rate on the PCI bus. Additionally, a special register location provides receive data
byte with its associated error flags. This is a 16-bit or 32-bit read operation where the Line Status Register
(LSR) content in the UART channel register is paired along with the data byte. This operation further facilitates
data unloading with the error flags without having to read the LSR register separately. Furthermore, the
XR17D154 supports PCI burst mode for read/write operation of up to 64 bytes of data.
The second method is through each UART channel’s transmit holding register (THR) and receive holding
register (RHR). The THR and RHR registers are 16550 compatible so their access is limited to 8-bit format.
The software driver must separately read the LSR content for the associated error flags before reading the
data byte.
4.1
DATA LOADING AND UNLOADING VIA 32-BIT PCI BURST TRANSFERS
The XR17D154 supports PCI Burst Read and PCI Burst Write transactions anywhere in the mapped memory
region (except reserved areas). In addition, to utilize this feature fully, the device provides a separate memory
location (apart from the 16550 register set) where the RX and the TX FIFO can be read from/written to, as
shown in Table 3 on page 13. The following is an extract from the table showing the burstable memory
locations:
Channel 0:

0x100 - 0x13F (64 bytes)

(maximum 16 DWORD reads) at memory locations 0x100 (channel 0), 0x300 (channel 1), 0x500 (channel 2),
and 0x700 (channel 3). This operation is at least 16 times faster than reading the data in 64 separate 8-bit
memory reads of RHR register (0x000 for channel 0, 0x200 for channel 1, 0x400 for channel 2, and 0x600 for
channel 3).

5.0 UART
There are 4 UARTs [channels 3:0] in the D154. Each has its own 64-byte of transmit and receive FIFO, a set of
16550 compatible control and status registers, and a baud rate generator for individual channel data rate
setting. Eight additional registers per UART were added for the EXAR enhanced features.
5.1
Programmable Baud Rate Generator
Each UART has its own Baud Rate Generator (BRG) with a prescaler for the transmitter and receiver. The
prescaler is controlled by a software bit in the MCR register. The MCR register bit-7 sets the prescaler to divide
the input crystal or external clock by 1 or 4. The output of the prescaler clocks to the BRG. The BRG further
divides this clock by a programmable divisor between 1 and (216 -1) to obtain a 16X or 8X sampling clock of
the serial data rate. The sampling clock is used by the transmitter for data bit shifting and receiver for data
sampling. The BRG divisor (DLL and DLM registers) defaults to a random value upon power up. Therefore, the
BRG must be programmed during initialization to the operating data rate.

clock at 16X clock rate. At 8X sampling rate, these data rates would double. When using a non-standard data
rate crystal or external clock, the divisor value can be calculated with the following equation(s).
divisor (decimal) = (XTAL1 clock frequency / prescaler) / (serial data rate x 16), WITH 8XMODE [3:0] IS 0

Transmitter
The transmitter section comprises of a 64 bytes of FIFO, a byte-wide Transmit Holding Register (THR) and an
8-bit Transmit Shift Register (TSR). THR receives a data byte from the host (non-FIFO mode) or a data byte
from the FIFO when the FIFO is enabled by FCR bit-0. TSR shifts out every data bit with the 16X or 8X internal
clock. A bit time is 16 or 8 clock periods. The transmitter sends the start bit followed by the number of data bits,
inserts the proper parity bit if enable, and adds the stop bit(s). The status of the THR and TSR are reported in
the Line Status Register (LSR bit-5 and bit-6).
5.2.1
Transmit Holding Register (THR) - Write-Only
The transmit holding register is an 8-bit register providing a data interface to the host processor. The host
writes transmit data byte to the THR to be converted into a serial data stream including start-bit, data bits,
parity-bit and stop-bit(s). The least-significant-bit (Bit-0) becomes first data bit to go out. The THR is also the
input register to the transmit FIFO of 64 bytes when FIFO operation is enabled by FCR bit-0. A THR empty
interrupt can be generated when it is enabled in IER bit-1.
5.2.2
Transmitter Operation in non-FIFO mode
The host loads transmit data to THR one character at a time. The THR empty flag (LSR bit-5) is set when the
data byte is transferred to TSR. THR flag can generate a transmit empty interrupt (ISR bit-1) when it is enabled
by IER bit-1. The TSR flag (LSR bit-6) is set when TSR becomes completely empty.

5.2.3
Transmitter Operation in FIFO mode
The host may fill the transmit FIFO with up to 64 bytes of transmit data. The THR empty flag (LSR bit-5) is set
whenever the FIFO is empty. The THR empty flag can generate a transmit empty interrupt (ISR bit-1) when the
amount of data in the FIFO falls below its programmed trigger level (see TXTRG register). The transmit empty
interrupt is enabled by IER bit-1. The TSR flag (LSR bit-6) is set when TSR becomes completely empty.
Furthermore, with the RS485 half-duplex direction control enabled (FCTR bit-5=1) the source of the transmit
empty interrupt changes to TSR empty instead of THR empty. This is to ensure the RTS# output is not
changed until the last stop bit of the last character is shifted out.
5.2.4
Auto RS485 Operation
The auto RS485 half-duplex direction control changes the behavior of the transmitter when enabled by FCTR
bit-5. While transmitting, the RTS# or DTR# signal is HIGH. The RTS# or DTR# signal changes from HIGH to
LOW after a specified delay indicated in MSR[7:4] following the last stop bit of the last character that has been
transmitted. This helps in turning around the transceiver to receive the remote station’s response. The delay
optimizes the time needed for the last transmission to reach the farthest station on a long cable network before
switching off the line driver. This delay prevents undesirable line signal disturbance that causes signal
degradation. It also changes the transmitter empty interrupt to TSR empty instead of THR empty.

Receiver
The receiver section contains an 8-bit Receive Shift Register (RSR) and Receive Holding Register (RHR). The
RSR uses the 16X or 8X clock for timing. It verifies and validates every bit on the incoming character in the
middle of each data bit. On the falling edge of a start or false start bit, an internal receiver counter starts
counting at the 16X or 8X clock rate. After 8 or 4 clocks the start bit period should be at the center of the start
bit. At this time the start bit is sampled and if it is still a logic 0 it is validated. Evaluating the start bit in this
manner prevents the receiver from assembling a false character. The rest of the data bits and stop bits are
sampled and validated in this same manner to prevent false framing. If there were any error(s), they are
reported in the LSR register bits 1- 4 and an LSR interrupt is generated immediately if IER bit-2 is enabled.
Upon unloading the receive data byte from RHR, the receive FIFO pointer is bumped and the error tags are
immediately updated to reflect the status of the data byte in RHR register. RHR can generate a receive data
ready interrupt upon receiving a character or delay until it reaches the FIFO trigger level. Furthermore, data
delivery to the host is guaranteed by a receive data ready time-out function when receive data does not reach
the receive FIFO trigger level. This time-out delay is 4 word lengths as defined by LCR[1:0] plus 12 bits time.
The RHR interrupt is enabled by IER bit-0.
5.3.1
Receive Holding Register (RHR) - Read-Only
The receive holding register is an 8-bit register that holds a receive data byte from the receive shift register
(RSR). It provides the receive data interface to the host processor. The host reads the receive data byte on this
register whenever a data byte is transferred from the RSR. RHR also part of the receive FIFO of 64 bytes by
11-bit wide, 4 extra bits are for the error tags to be in LSR register. When the FIFO is enabled by FCR bit-0, it
acts as the first-out register of the FIFO as new data are put over the first-in register. The receive FIFO pointer
is bumped after the RHR register is read. Also, the error tags associated with the data byte are immediately
updated onto the line status register (LSR) bits 1-4.

Automatic Hardware (RTS/CTS or DTR/DSR) Flow Control Operation
Automatic hardware RTS/CTS or DTR/DSR flow control is used to prevent data overrun to the local receiver
FIFO and remote receiver FIFO. The RTS#/DTR# output pin is used to request the remote unit to suspend/
restart data transmission while the CTS#/DSR# input pin is monitored to suspend/restart the local transmitter.
The auto RTS/CTS or DTR/DSR flow control features are individually selected to fit specific application
requirement and enabled through EFR bit-6 and 7 and MCR bit-2 for either RTS/CTS or DTR/DSR control
signals.

Two interrupts associated with auto RTS/CTS and DTR/DSR flow control have been added to give indication
when RTS#/DTR# pin or CTS#/DSR# pin are de-asserted during operation. These interrupts are enabled by:
• Setting EFR bit-4 =1 to enable the shaded register bits
• Setting IER bit-7 will enable the CTS#/DSR# interrupt when these pins are de-asserted. The selection of
CTS# or DSR# is selected via MCR bit-2. See Table 11 above for complete details.
• Setting IER bit-6 will enable the RTS#/DTR# interrupt when these pins are de-asserted. The selection of
RTS# or DTR# is selected via MCR bit-2. See Table 11 above for complete details.
Automatic hardware flow control is selected by setting bits 6 (RTS) and 7 (CTS) of the EFR register to logic 1.
If CTS# pin transitions from LOW to HIGH indicating a flow control request, ISR bit-5 will be set to logic 1, (if
enabled via IER bit 6-7), and the UART will suspend TX transmissions as soon as the stop bit of the character
in process is shifted out. Transmission is resumed after the CTS# input returns LOW, indicating more data may
be sent.

The local UART (UARTA) starts data transfer by asserting -RTSA# (1). RTSA# is normally connected to CTSB# (2) of
remote UART (UARTB). CTSB# allows its transmitter to send data (3). TXB data arrives and fills UARTA receive FIFO
(4). When RXA data fills up to its receive FIFO trigger level, UARTA activates its RXA data ready interrupt (5) and continues to receive and put data into its FIFO. If interrupt service latency is long and data is not being unloaded, UARTA
monitors its receive data fill level to match the upper threshold of RTS delay and de-assert RTSA# (6). CTSB# follows
(7) and request UARTB transmitter to suspend data transfer. UARTB stops or finishes sending the data bits in its transmit shift register (8). When receive FIFO data in UARTA is unloaded to match the lower threshold of RTS delay (9),
UARTA re-asserts RTSA# (10), CTSB# recognizes the change (11) and restarts its transmitter and data flow again until
next receive FIFO trigger (12). This same event applies to the reverse direction when UARTA sends data to UARTB
with RTSB# and CTSA# controlling the data flow.

Infrared Mode
Each UART in the D154 includes the infrared encoder and decoder compatible to the IrDA (Infrared Data
Association) version 1.0. The input pin ENIR conveniently activates all 4 UART channels to start up in the
infrared mode. The ENIR pin is sampled when the RST# input is de-asserted. This global control pin enables
the MCR bit-6 function in every UART channel register. After power up or a reset, the software can overwrite
MCR bit-6 if so desired. ENIR and MCR bit-6 also disable its receiver while the transmitter is sending data.
This prevents the echoed data from going to the receiver. The global activation ENIR pin prevents the infrared
emitter from turning on and drawing large amount of current while the system is starting up. When the infrared
feature is enabled, the transmit data outputs, TX[3:0], would idle at logic zero level. Likewise, the RX[3:0]
inputs assume an idle level of logic zero.
The infrared encoder sends out a 3/16 of a bit wide pulse for each “0” bit in the transmit data stream. This
signal encoding reduces the on-time of the infrared LED, hence reduces the power consumption. See
Figure 17 below.
The infrared decoder receives the input pulse from the infrared sensing diode on RX pin. Each time it senses a
light pulse, it returns a logic zero to the data bit stream. The RX input signal may be inverted prior delivered to
the input of the decoder via internal register setting. This option supports active low instead of normal active
high pulse from some infrared modules on the market.

Internal Loopback
Each UART channel provides an internal loopback capability for system diagnostic. The internal loopback
mode is enabled by setting MCR register bit-4 to logic 1. All regular UART functions operate normally.
Figure 18 shows how the modem port signals are re-configured. Transmit data from the transmit shift register
output is internally routed to the receive shift register input allowing the system to receive the same data that it
was sending. The TX, RTS# and DTR# pins are held HIGH (idle or de-asserted state), and the CTS#, DSR#
CD# and RI# inputs are ignored.

Baud Rate Generator Divisors (DLL and DLM) - Read/Write
The Baud Rate Generator (BRG) is a 16-bit counter that generates the data rate for the transmitter and

bit-7 is set to logic 1. See “Section 5.1, Programmable Baud Rate Generator” on page 27 for more detail.
5.8.4
Interrupt Enable Register (IER) - Read/Write
The Interrupt Enable Register (IER) masks the interrupts from receive data ready, transmit empty, line status
and modem status registers. These interrupts are reported in the Interrupt Status Register (ISR) register and
also encoded in INT (INT0-INT3) register in the Device Configuration Registers.
IER VERSUS RECEIVE FIFO INTERRUPT MODE OPERATION
When the receive FIFO (FCR bit-0 = a logic 1) and receive interrupts (IER BIT-0 = logic 1) are enabled, the
RHR interrupts (see ISR bits 3 and 4) status will reflect the following:
A. The receive data available interrupts are issued to the host when the FIFO has reached the programmed
trigger level. It will be cleared when the FIFO drops below the programmed trigger level.
B. FIFO level will be reflected in the ISR register when the FIFO trigger level is reached. Both the ISR register
status bit and the interrupt will be cleared when the FIFO drops below the trigger level.
C. The receive data ready bit (LSR BIT-0) is set as soon as a character is transferred from the shift register to

IER VERSUS RECEIVE/TRANSMIT FIFO POLLED MODE OPERATION
When FCR BIT-0 equals a logic 1 for FIFO enable, resetting IER bits 0-3 enables the 158 in the FIFO polled
mode of operation. Since the receiver and transmitter have separate bits in the LSR either or both can be used
in the polled mode by selecting respective transmit or receive control bit(s).
A. LSR BIT-0 indicates there is data in RHR or RX FIFO.
B. LSR BIT-1 indicates an overrun error has occurred and that data in the FIFO may not be valid.
C. LSR BITS 2-4 provides the type of receive data errors encountered for the data byte in RHR, if any.
D. LSR BIT-5 indicates THR is empty.
E. LSR BIT-6 indicates when both the transmit FIFO and TSR are empty.
F. LSR BIT-7 indicates a data error in at least one character in the RX FIFO.

Interrupt Status Register (ISR) - Read-Only
The UART provides multiple levels of prioritized interrupts to minimize external software interaction. The Interrupt Status Register (ISR) provides the user with six interrupt status bits. Performing a read cycle on the ISR
will give the user the current highest pending interrupt level to be serviced with others queued up for next service. No other interrupts are acknowledged until the pending interrupt is serviced. The Interrupt Source Table,
Table 14, shows the data values (bit 0-5) for the six prioritized interrupt levels and the interrupt sources associated with each of these interrupt levels.

FIFO Control Register (FCR) - Write-Only
This register is used to enable the FIFOs, clear the FIFOs, set the transmit/receive FIFO trigger levels, and
select the DMA mode (legacy term that refers to "block transfer mode"). The DMA and FIFO modes are
defined as follows:
FCR[0]: TX and RX FIFO Enable
• Logic 0 = Disable the transmit and receive FIFO (default).
• Logic 1 = Enable the transmit and receive FIFOs. This bit must be set to logic 1 when other FCR bits are
written or they will not be programmed.
FCR[1]: RX FIFO Reset
This bit is only active when FCR bit-0 is active.
• Logic 0 = No receive FIFO reset (default).
• Logic 1 = Reset the receive FIFO pointers and FIFO level counter logic (the receive shift register is not
cleared or altered). This bit will return to a logic 0 after resetting the FIFO.
FCR[2]: TX FIFO Reset
This bit is only active when FCR bit-0 is active.
• Logic 0 = No transmit FIFO reset (default).
• Logic 1 = Reset the transmit FIFO pointers and FIFO level counter logic (the transmit shift register is not
cleared or altered). This bit will return to a logic 0 after resetting the FIFO.
FCR[3]: DMA Mode Select
This bit has no effect since TXRDY and RXRDY pins are not available in this device. It is provided for legacy
software. DMA is a legacy term used for block transfer mode. DMA does not stand for "Direct Memory Access."
• Logic 0 = Set DMA to mode 0 (default).
• Logic 1 = Set DMA to mode 1.
FCR[5:4]: Transmit FIFO Trigger Select
(logic 0 = default, TX trigger level = 1)
The FCTR bits 6-7 are associated with these 2 bits by selecting one of the four tables. The 4 user selectable
trigger levels in 4 tables are supported for compatibility reasons. These 2 bits set the trigger level for the
transmit FIFO interrupt. The UART will issue a transmit interrupt when the number of characters in the FIFO
falls below the selected trigger level, or when it gets empty in case that the FIFO did not get filled over the
trigger level on last re-load. Table 15 below shows the selections. EFR bit-4 must be set to ‘1’ before these
bits can be accessed. Note that the receiver and the transmitter cannot use different trigger tables. Whichever
selection is made last applies to both the RX and TX side.

• Logic 0 = No parity.
• Logic 1 = A parity bit is generated during the transmission while the receiver checks for parity error of the
data character received.
LCR[4]: TX and RX Parity Select
If the parity bit is enabled with LCR bit-3 set to a logic 1, LCR BIT-4 selects the even or odd parity format.
• Logic 0 = ODD Parity is generated by forcing an odd number of logic 1’s in the transmitted character. The
receiver must be programmed to check the same format (default).
• Logic 1 = EVEN Parity is generated by forcing an even the number of logic 1’s in the transmitted character.
The receiver must be programmed to check the same format.

The MCR register is used for controlling the modem interface signals or general purpose inputs/outputs.
MCR[0]: DTR# Pins
The DTR# pin may be used for automatic hardware flow control enabled by EFR bit-6 and MCR bit-2=1. If the
modem interface is not used, this output may be used for general purpose.

The RTS# pin may be used for automatic hardware flow control by enabled by EFR bit-6 and MCR bit-2=0. If
the modem interface is not used, this output may be used for general purpose.
• Logic 0 = Force RTS# output HIGH (default).
• Logic 1 = Force RTS# output LOW.
MCR[2]: DTR# or RTS# for Auto Flow Control
DTR# or RTS# auto hardware flow control select. This bit is in effect only when auto RTS/DTR is enabled by
EFR bit-6. DTR# selection is associated with DSR# and RTS# is with CTS#.

• Logic 0 = Disable Xon-Any function (for 16C550 compatibility) (default).
• Logic 1 = Enable Xon-Any function. In this mode any RX character received will enable Xon, resume data
transmission.
MCR[6]: Infrared Encoder/Decoder Enable
The state of this bit depends on the sampled logic level of pin ENIR during power up, following a hardware
reset or a soft-reset. Afterward user can override this bit for desired operation.
• Logic 0 = Disable the infrared mode, operates in the normal serial character mode.
• Logic 1 = Enable infrared IrDA receive and transmit inputs/outputs. While in this mode, the TX/RX output/
input are routed to the infrared encoder/decoder. The data input and output levels will conform to the IrDA
infrared interface requirement. As such, while in this mode the infrared TX output will be a logic 0 during idle
data conditions. FCTR bit-4 may be selected to invert the RX input signal level going to the decoder for
infrared modules that provide rather an inverted output.
MCR[7]: Clock Prescaler Select
• Logic 0 = Divide by one. The input clock from the crystal or external clock is fed directly to the Programmable
Baud Rate Generator without further modification, i.e., divide by one (default).
• Logic 1 = Divide by four. The prescaler divides the input clock from the crystal or external clock by four and
feeds it to the Programmable Baud Rate Generator, hence, data rates become one-fourth.
5.8.9
Line Status Register (LSR) - Read/Only
This register provides the status of data transfers between the UART and the host. If IER bit-2 is set to a logic
1, an LSR interrupt will be generated immediately when any character in the RX FIFO has an error (parity,
framing, overrun, break). Reading LSR will clear LSR bits 4-1.
LSR[0]: Receive Data Ready Indicator
• Logic 0 = No data in receive holding register or FIFO (default).
• Logic 1 = Data has been received and is saved in the receive holding register or FIFO.
LSR[1]: Receiver Overrun Flag
• Logic 0 = No overrun error (default).
• Logic 1 = Overrun error. A data overrun error condition occurred in the receive shift register. This happens
when additional data arrives while the FIFO is full. In this case the previous data in the receive shift register
is overwritten. Note that under this condition the data byte in the receive shift register is not transferred into
the FIFO, therefore the data in the FIFO is not corrupted by the error. This bit is cleared after LSR is read.
LSR[2]: Receive Data Parity Error Tag
• Logic 0 = No parity error (default).
• Logic 1 = Parity error. The receive character in RHR does not have correct parity information and is suspect.
This error is associated with the character available for reading in RHR. This bit is cleared after LSR is read.
LSR[3]: Receive Data Framing Error Tag
• Logic 0 = No framing error (default).
• Logic 1 = Framing error. The receive character did not have a valid stop bit(s). This error is associated with
the character available for reading in RHR. This bit is cleared after LSR is read.
LSR[4]: Receive Break Tag
• Logic 0 = No break condition (default).
• Logic 1 = The receiver received a break signal (RX was a logic 0 for one character frame time). In the FIFO
mode, only one break character is loaded into the FIFO. This bit is cleared after LSR is read.

LSR[5]: Transmit Holding Register Empty Flag
This bit is the Transmit Holding Register Empty indicator. This bit indicates that the transmitter is ready to
accept a new character for transmission. In addition, this bit causes the UART to issue an interrupt to the host
when the THR interrupt enable is set. The THR bit is set to a logic 1 when the last data byte is transferred from
the transmit holding register to the transmit shift register. The bit is reset to logic 0 concurrently with the data
loading to the transmit holding register by the host. In the FIFO mode this bit is set when the transmit FIFO is
empty; it is cleared when at least 1 byte is written to the transmit FIFO.
LSR[6]: Transmit Shift Register Empty Flag
This bit is the Transmit Shift Register Empty indicator. This bit is set to a logic 1 whenever the transmitter goes
idle. It is set to logic 0 whenever either the THR or TSR contains a data character. In the FIFO mode this bit is
set to one whenever the transmit FIFO and transmit shift register are both empty.
LSR[7]: Receive FIFO Data Error Flag
• Logic 0 = No FIFO error (default).
• Logic 1 = An indicator for the sum of all error bits in the RX FIFO. At least one parity error, framing error or
break indication is in the FIFO data. This bit clears when there is no more error(s) in the FIFO.
5.8.10
Modem Status Register (MSR) - Read-Only
This register provides the current state of the modem interface signals, or other peripheral device that the
UART is connected. Lower four bits of this register are used to indicate the changed information. These bits
are set to a logic 1 whenever a signal from the modem changes state. These bits may be used as general
purpose inputs/outputs when they are not used with modem signals.
MSR[0]: Delta CTS# Input Flag
• Logic 0 = No change on CTS# input (default).
• Logic 1 = The CTS# input has changed state since the last time it was monitored. A modem status interrupt
will be generated if MSR interrupt is enabled (IER bit-3.
MSR[1]: Delta DSR# Input Flag
• Logic 0 = No change on DSR# input (default).
• Logic 1 = The DSR# input has changed state since the last time it was monitored. A modem status interrupt
will be generated if MSR interrupt is enabled (IER bit-3).
MSR[2]: Delta RI# Input Flag
• Logic 0 = No change on RI# input (default).
• Logic 1 = The RI# input has changed from a logic 0 to a logic 1, ending of the ringing signal. A modem status
interrupt will be generated if MSR interrupt is enabled (IER bit-3).
MSR[3]: Delta CD# Input Flag
• Logic 0 = No change on CD# input (default).
• Logic 1 = Indicates that the CD# input has changed state since the last time it was monitored. A modem
status interrupt will be generated if MSR interrupt is enabled (IER bit-3).
MSR[4]: CTS Input Status
CTS# pin may function as automatic hardware flow control signal input if it is enabled and selected by Auto
CTS (EFR bit-7) and RTS/CTS flow control select (MCR bit-2). Auto CTS flow control allows starting and
stopping of local data transmissions based on the modem CTS# signal. A logic 1 on the CTS# pin will stop
UART transmitter as soon as the current character has finished transmission, and a logic 0 will resume data
transmission. If automatic hardware flow control is not used, MSR bit-4 bit is the compliment of the CTS# input.
However in the loopback mode, this bit is equivalent to the RTS# bit in the MCR register. The CTS# input may
be used as a general purpose input when the modem interface is not used.

• Logic 0 = Select RX input as active high encoded IrDA data, normal, (default).
• Logic 1 = Select RX input as active low encoded IrDA data, inverted.
FCTR[5]: Auto RS485 Enable
Auto RS485 half duplex control enable/disable.
• Logic 0 = Standard ST16C550 mode. Transmitter generates an interrupt when transmit holding register
(THR) becomes empty. Transmit Shift Register (TSR) may still be shifting data bit out.
• Logic 1 = Enable Auto RS485 half duplex direction control. RTS# output changes its logic level from HIGH to
LOW when finished sending the last stop bit of the last character out of the TSR register. It changes back to
HIGH from LOW when a data byte is loaded into the THR or transmit FIFO. The change to HIGH occurs prior
sending the start-bit. It also changes the transmitter interrupt from transmit holding to transmit shift register
(TSR) empty.
FCTR[7:6]: TX and RX FIFO Trigger Table Select
These 2 bits select the transmit and receive FIFO trigger level table A, B, C or D. When table A, B, or C is
selected the auto RTS flow control trigger level is set to "next FIFO trigger level" for compatibility to ST16C550
and ST16C650 series. RTS#/DTR# triggers on the next level of the RX FIFO trigger level, in another word, one
FIFO level above and one FIFO level below. See Table 15 for complete selection with FCR bit 4-5 and FCTR
bit 6-7, i.e. if Table C is used on the receiver with RX FIFO trigger level set to 56 bytes, RTS/DTR# output will
de-assert at 60 and re-assert at 16.

Enhanced Feature Register (EFR) - Read/Write
Enhanced features are enabled or disabled using this register. Bits 0-3 provide single or dual consecutive
character software flow control selection (see Table 19). When the Xon1 and Xon2 and Xoff1 and Xoff2 modes
are selected, the double 8-bit words are concatenated into two sequential characters. Caution: note that
whenever changing the TX or RX flow control bits, always reset all bits back to logic 0 (disable) before
programming a new setting.
EFR[3:0]: Software Flow Control Select
Combinations of software flow control can be selected by programming these bits. See Table 19 for complete
selections. The XOFF1/XOFF2 characters are transmitted approximately 2 character times after the RX FIFO
level has reached the RX trigger level, irrespective of which trigger table is used (Trigger Tables A-D). The
XON1/XON2 characters are transmitted when the RX FIFO level falls below the next lower trigger level for
Trigger Tables A-C and they are transmitted when the RX FIFO level falls below the (RX trigger level hysteresis level) for Trigger Table D. For example, if Trigger Table D is used with an RX trigger level of 56 and
a hysteresis level of 16, the XON1/XON2 characters are sent when the RX FIFO level count falls below 40.

EFR[4]: Enhanced Function Bits Enable
Enhanced function control bit. This bit enables the functions in IER bits 4-7, ISR bits 4-5, FCR bits 4-5, and
MCR bits 5-7 to be modified. After modifying any enhanced bits, EFR bit-4 can be set to a logic 0 to latch the
new values. This feature prevents legacy software from altering or overwriting the enhanced functions once
set. Normally, it is recommended to leave it enabled, logic 1.
• Logic 0 = modification disable/latch enhanced features. IER bits 4-7, ISR bits 4-5, FCR bits 4-5, and MCR
bits 5-7 are saved to retain the user settings. After a reset, the IER bits 4-7, ISR bits 4-5, FCR bits 4-5, and
MCR bits 5-7 are set to a logic 0 to be compatible with the industry standard 16550 (default).
• Logic 1 = Enables the enhanced functions. When this bit is set to a logic 1 all enhanced features are
enabled.
EFR[5]: Special Character Detect Enable
• Logic 0 = Special Character Detect Disabled (default).
• Logic 1 = Special Character Detect Enabled. The UART compares each incoming receive character with
data in Xoff-2 register. If a match exists, the received data will be transferred to FIFO and ISR bit-4 will be set
to indicate detection of the special character. Bit-0 corresponds with the LSB bit for the receive character. If
flow control is set for comparing Xon1, Xoff1 (EFR [1:0]=’10’) then flow control and special character work
normally. However, if flow control is set for comparing Xon2, Xoff2 (EFR[1:0]=’01’) then flow control works
normally, but Xoff2 will not go to the FIFO, and will generate an Xoff interrupt and a special character
interrupt.

EFR[6]: Auto RTS or DTR Flow Control Enable
RTS#/DTR# output may be used for hardware flow control by setting EFR bit-6 to logic 1. When Auto RTS/
DTR is selected, an interrupt will be generated when the receive FIFO is filled to the programmed trigger level
and RTS#/DTR# will de-assert HIGH at the next upper trigger or selected hysteresis level. RTS#/DTR# will
return LOW when FIFO data falls below the next lower trigger or selected hysteresis level (see FCTR bits 4-7).
The RTS# or DTR# output must be asserted (LOW) before the auto RTS/DTR can take effect. The selection
for RTS# or DTR# is through MCR bit-2. RTS/DTR# pin will function as a general purpose output when
hardware flow control is disabled.
• Logic 0 = Automatic RTS/DTR flow control is disabled (default).
• Logic 1 = Enable Automatic RTS/DTR flow control.

Automatic CTS or DSR Flow Control.
• Logic 0 = Automatic CTS/DSR flow control is disabled (default).

6.0 PROGRAMMING EXAMPLES

UNLOADING RECEIVE DATA USING THE SPECIAL RECEIVE FIFO DATA WITH STATUS
It is suggested that before starting to read the Special Receive FIFO Data with Status to unload data from any
UART channel (address 0x180 for channel 0), do a dummy read to the Device ID (DVID) register in the Configuration Register of the device. The Special Receive FIFO Data with Status register can then be read multiple
times subsequently without any byte-swapping problem as long as no other register (except the Device ID register) is accessed in between data unload. If you must read or write to another register, make that dummy read
to the DVID register again and continue with data unloading.
A step by step procedure describing the sequence for a target channel is shown below. From the receive data
service routine:
• Do a dummy read to Device ID (DVID) register. Address 0x8D in BYTE alignment or address 0x8C in
DWORD alignment.
•
Read the data byte and its associated error status from ‘Special Receive FIFO Data with Status’ register of
the target channel until done or empty when one of the LSR status byte bit-0=0.
NOTE: If you must do other Read/Write operations to other register(s) during data unloading, repeat steps 1 &
2 to continue unloading data plus status from the ‘Special Receive FIFO Data with Status’ register of the target
channel.
Some Examples of using the Special Receive FIFO Data with Status:
EXAMPLE I: POLLING
.....................
Read LSR
Read DVID
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)*
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)
....................
EXAMPLE 2: INTERRUPT SERVICE USING INTERRUPT INFORMATION IN DEVICE CONFIGURATION REGISTER SET
.....................
Read Global Interrupt Register INT0 (address 0x080)
Read INT1 through INT3 registers to identify interrupting channel (address 0x081 through 0x083)
Read DVID
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)*

................
EXAMPLE 3: INTERRUPT SERVICE USING INTERRUPT INFORMATION IN INDIVIDUAL CHANNEL’S REGISTERS
................
Read Global Interrupt Register INT0 (address 0x080)
Read ISR register of interrupting channel
Read DVID
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)*
Read Special Receive FIFO Data with Status (address 0x180 for channel 0, etc)
................
* In case some other registers need to be accessed in between ‘Special Receive FIFO Data with Status’
reads, a ‘Read DVID’ instruction has to be inserted before resuming ‘Special Receive FIFO Data with Status’
read operation.
