Contents.What is RS232 Protocol?The RS232 protocol is a popular serial interface that is used to connect computers to peripheral devices such as modems. We will take a look at the serial port pinouts used to implement RS232 as well as some additional reference information concerning the protocol.The RS232 protocol transmits data of wires employing signal levels that differ from the standard 5V in order to minimize signal interference. It performs asynchronous transmission at a constant rate that is synchronized with the start pulse signal’s level.
Distances of up to 20 meters are the limit for reliable data transfer using the RS232 interface. What does RS232 stand for?Data transfer standards are developed by the Electronic Industry Association (EIA). The prefix RS denotes a Recommended Standard, and all of the EIA standards begin with those characters. The formal specification of RS232 is that it is an interface which uses serial binary data exchange to communicate between DTE and DCE devices. DTE is the acronym for Data Terminal Equipment and DCE represents Data Communication Equipment.
The basic example of these two types of equipment defines a computer as a DTE device with a modem filling the role of DCE.Serial communication is implemented by the transmission of serial data between the DTE and DCE. For instance, a computer (DTE) might send the binary data “11011101” serially to the modem (DCE) which then replies by sending “11010101” back to the DTE device.The the operation mode, electrical standards, number of bits, and voltage levels to be used when transferring data between a DTE and DCE. Serial connectorsSerial communication devices make use of 9 or 25 pin D-type connectors for their cabled connections. They are commonly designated as DB-9 or DB-25 with the number used to differentiate between the pin counts. Various manufacturers’ names may replace the DB in the specifications.
The plugs contain sockets and pins, with each pin numbered and labeled. A serial pinout diagram is presented below.The RS232 protocol uses a 9 pin serial port that can have either male or female connectors. The most recent version of the protocol is known as RS232C.RS232C retains the features of RS232 but uses 25 pins rather than a 9 pin serial pinout. Whether a DB9 serial pinout or a 25 pin connection is used, only three of the pins are required to connect terminal devices. COM Port Pinout and ConfigurationRS232 manages communication flowing between the DTE and DCE using serial pinouts of either the DB9 or DB25 variety.
25 Pin Serial Cable Pinout
These D-sub connectors can terminate with an RS232 female pinout or DB25 or DB9 male connector pins. Each pin in a 9 or 25 serial connector pinout has its own distinct function.
