3.3.1. SCIDATA: [9] (+ 0x00)

SCIDATA is the data register and is used for both transmitting and receiving characters. The write data is transmitted through nSCIDATAOUTEN. The read data is received through SCIDATAIN. Table 3.2 shows bit assignments for SCIDATA.

Note

Software should write to this register only after setting the MODE bit to 1. Writes to this register with the MODE but set to 0 will be ignored by the hardware.
