LPC54608 USART 9 bit mode

Question asked by scott lawson on Aug 29, 2018

Is there anyway to put the USART into 9 bit data mode and then be able to set the 9th bit?  We are trying to communicate with an external power supply over an RS-485 interface and the controller on the power supply uses a 9 bit data frame consisting of 8 bits of data with an additional framing bit.  The first byte always has a 1 for the framing bit, all additional bytes have a 0.  


I'm just not sure how to set this 9th bit on a per byte basis.


Anyone managed to do this with this device?


Thanks for your help
