    [​IMG]I've attach an Asynchronous Data Transmitter schematic along with the data sheets for all the I.C. chips expect one. I didn't know what it was. It is the chip at the bottom right corner of the schematic?????:confused:

    My question is how exactly does this asynchronous data transmitter in particular work and what does it do? I am in extreme need for help and any info is greatly appreciate.

    Thank you all so much for your cooperation and assistance.

    Since this is a class assignment, what is your idea of what it does?

    I know that its for data transmission but, i'm not sure exactly where it starts. I just realized that the chip in the corner is a one shot that debounces the load line. I also know that the 74195 loads the data four data bits to be sent and the d flip flops are used to start the bit and keep the serial data line high. but with this circuit i'm having a hard time trying to actually see where its starting out at and what the final output would even look like...

    The IC in the bottom right corner is a 555 oscillator.
    (Do I get my candy for reading the number on the top left of the box, Bill? :D)

    I don't vough for it, but I think it is used to trigger the loading of new data and to reset the FFs. I don't know however why you 'd need such a complex circuit to do that. Maybe to guarantee a debounced signal.
