Can the TxD and RxD pins be used as a port?

Last Updated:12/26/2017


When only reception is performed using clock asynchronous serial I/O mode of the serial interface, can the TxD pin be used as a port? Also, when only transmission is performed, can the RxD pin be used as a port?


From the point in time that the serial I/O select bit is set to clock synchronous serial I/O mode or clock asynchronous serial I/O mode, the TxD pin cannot be used as a port, regardless of the settings of the transmit enable bit/receive enable bit.
When only transmission is performed, the RxD pin can be used as a port.
