UART 2 Mode
UART 2 Mode
Possible values of an option:
[Standard], [HPSIR], [ASKIR]
The option description:
Some time ago for communication on small distances (we will tell, between a mobile phone and the computer) the infra-red port was often used. This device can be met in three variants of execution: first, the infra-red priemo-transmitter can be connected to one of computer COM-ports, secondly, for these purposes the USB-port can be used, thirdly, the priemo-transmitter can be connected to a special socket on the motherboard. And if first two variants demand only installation of drivers in the latter case, a pole to everything, it is necessary to execute certain options in BIOS Setup.
The described option just also allows to configure the second serial port (COM2) for work in a mode of infra-red port. Naturally, it is a question only of the infra-red priemo-transmitter connected to a special socket on the motherboard. The second COM-port is thus disconnected.
Value by default — [Standard] — assumes that the second serial port functions in a usual mode. Variants [HPSIR] and [ASKIR] say that the corresponding equipment is connected to a socket on the motherboard, and the second COM-port is used as the infra-red. Distinction between them in concrete realisation of the infra-red interface: [HPSIR] specifies that firm HP specifications (HPSIR it is deciphered as Hewlett-Packard Serial InfraRed), [ASKIR] — that the realisation offered Sharp (ASKIR is chosen means Amplitude Shift Keyed Infrared Port) are used. At a value choice it is necessary to mean that variant HP faster offered Sharp, besides it is supported by a considerable quantity of devices.
