Re: Serial communication

The RS-232 driver circuit usually only support up to 115200,
although on newer boards they might support up to 230400 (250kbps).
If you need high speed serial communictaions you should bypass the RS-232
drivers and use the 3.3V signals.

The RS-422/485 drivers support up to 2.5Mbps but I have made successfull tests
at 6.5 Mbps.
