Anyone able to tell me how a USART works?
I want to decode a 1khz data stream and been told that using a pic with usart would probably be best, using synchronous serial reception mode to handle the data reception rather than doing it in software only.

The only problem is the 1Khz synchronous baud rate is very slow and non-standard
And the major problem I havent the foggiest on how to start this.
