More Information on RS-232...

What is RS-232?

In telecommunications, RS-232 is the name of the standard for serial binary single-ended data and control signals between a DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) and a DCE (Data Circuit-terminating Equipment).RS 232 is commonly used in a computer’s serial port.The RS232 standard defines the electrical characteristics as well as the timing of signals, their meaning and the physical size and pin out of the connectors.An RS-232 port can be found in PCs for connections to peripheral devices.However, due to their limited transmission speed and large connector sizes, the USB was developed.RS 232 devices can also be found in industrial machines or scientific instruments.The RS232 standard sets acceptable signal and voltage levels, along with common pinout configurations for wiring serial connector ports.The standard also specifies the protocols for control information between devices, including events such as indicating the beginning or end of a data stream.
