Baud rate arduino
I am implementing a simple visible light communication module with two arduinos, as transmitter and receiver, with a short text message consisting of 120 characters. I have used Manchester encoding with on-off -keying modulation. Altogether, in my message frame, with Manchester encoding and with preambles and end-of-frame byte, there are 2480 bits. I have set one bit period to be 500 micro second. In the receiver side I am sampling this bit four times, at (500/4) 125 micro seconds. From my knowledge, since each bit is 500 us, there are 2000 bits/s that are being transmitted from the transmitter so a baud rate of 9600 bits/s should work. However, 9600 is not working and any baud rate above 38400 upto 115200 is working and I can properly decode this short message in my receiver. Can anyone please explain me the behavior? Why is baud rate of 9600 not working though I am only transmitting 2000 bits per second. Further information, I have set the prescalar to 128, so the ADC sampling frequency is (16MHz/128)/13 = 9.6kHz. Thank you very much.
When you suddenly started talking about "baud rates", it implied that you're using the Hardware Serial port on the Arduino. If so, then realise that feeding 2,000 bits per second (bps) into a device expecting 9,600 bps has problems. The way that an Asynchronous UART works is that it waits for a start signal (bit), then decodes the next (typically) 9 signals at the current bit rate. It then checks that the 9th bit is a stop bit; if it isn't, it discards the byte. Since you're only changing every 9600/2000 = 4.8 bits, then odds on the 9th "stop" bit will be of the wrong sense, and the data will be lost. I'm going to draw an ASCII diagram (I don't have the resources necessary for some of the gorgeous diagrams I've seen on this site...) for the timing that I'm talking about. I'll use the bitstream 00101101 for the signal produced by the circuit, with a . as a 0ms separator between bits; I'll use a ^ to point out where the UART is sampling the bits; I'll use a * to indicate a "correct" byte (insofar as the byte ends in a correct stop bit); I'll use a ! to indicate an "incorrect" byte (insofar as the byte ends in an incorrect stop bit); Of course, I'll assume a baud rate of 10,000bps (5 rather than 4.8...) 00000.00000.11111.00000.11111.11111.00000.11111 ^^^^^.^^^^!.......^^^^^.^^^^*.......^^^^^.^^^^* This sequence would result in the UART recording the following 3 bytes: Error 0xF0 (LSb first is defined...) 0xF0 (LSb first is defined...)
