From the number of transmitted messages and the calculated transmission periods, the time needed for 1 bit transmission, corresponding to a certain bus baud rate when the bus is 80 % utilised by synchronous messages, needs to be calculated.
The minimum time required to perform a single data cycle, [T.sub.M], is rounded up to the nearest 10th value (TT) and it is defined as the time interval between two request messages for a particular baud rate. Baud rates such as 2400, 4800, 9600, 14400, 19200, 38400, 56000, 57600, and 115200 are selected to test the stability of the UART.
ANT channel will be maintained indefinitely at the given time interval and frame baud rate. The higher layers of the master will eventually provide new data to the ANT protocol for continuous transmission.
As expected under all baud rate conditions, the differential voltage signal attenuation increased as the baud rate increased.
A relatively fast modem (28,800 bits per second, also known as "baud rate") costs under $100.
Even at this baud rate, spoken-word audio doesn't sound bad.
It is will work with virtually all modems and has a potential baud rate of 28.8Kps.
Generally stated as "baud rate" or "bits per second" (bps), modem speeds range from 1200 baud to 28,800 baud.
Baud rate is equivalent to bits per second at low speeds, for example, 300 baud is the same as 300 bps.
Initial investment in a high baud rate can pay for itself.
The standard baud rate, or the rate at which data is transferred, once was 2400, but now 9600 is quite common.
The hardware must be Hayes-compatible, and the faster the baud rate, the better.
