Frequently Asked Questions

Is membership open to users of TTL and 3.3v etc. UARTs?

We strive to be an inclusive group and appreciate that much newfangled equipment deviates from the standard, so, yes.

Do you have a secret handshake?

It wouldn't be secret if we told everyone, would it. But in any case, details are documented in the standard, TIA-232-F Interface Between Data Terminal Equipment and Data Circuit-Terminating Equipment Employing Serial Binary Data Interchange.

Do you need to wait for CTS to be raised before posting to the mailing list?

No, we have sufficient buffering in place.
