start bit
Jump to user comments
protocol A bit which signals the start of transmission of
a character on a serial line. For an RS-423 signal, the
line is normally at logical zero which there is no data and
the start bit is a logical one. The zero-one transition tells
the receiver when to start sampling the signal to extract the
data bits.
