According to the datasheet, the maximum USART Baud Rate on LPC43xx is 8 Mbit/s.
However, it could be 12.75Mbit/s in following thread

I need 16 Mbit/s or more for my application.
On the page 1116 of user manual UM10503, the default OSINT (Integer part of oversampling ratio) is 16. Can I just change it to 8 for 16 Mbit/s baud rate?
Mostly, x8 oversampling is already very reliable.

Thanks in advance,
