I have a question concerning the SCI of the MC9S12NE64.
The microcontroler will receive data from another device. It will send me 1 Start Bit, 8 Databits, 1 Parity and 2 Stop bits. Unfortunately it seems impossible to configure the MC9S12NE64 to receive a 2nd stop bit. What happens if I ignore this 2nd stop bit? Do I will get a framing error or something similar? I mean, I will receive a stop bit at the correct possition and as I know, the receiver awaits a new start bit for the next pakage. What happens to a 2nd stop bit between stop and start bit?
Can I simply set the MC9S12NE64 to 9 bits (M=1) with parity enabled(9th bit will become the parity bit)?
Thanks :smileyhappy:
