SYSCON UARTFRGMULT addressOffset = 0x0F4

All USART peripherals share a common clock U_PCLK, which can be adjusted by a fractional divider:


UARTCLKDIV is the USART clock configured in the UARTCLKDIV register.

The fractional portion (1 + MULT/DIV) is determined by the two USART fractional divider registers in the SYSCON block:

  1. The DIV denominator of the fractional divider value is programmed in the UARTFRGDIV register. See SYSCON registerName = UARTFRGDIV addressOffset = 0x0F0.
  2. The MULT value programmed in this register is the numerator of the fractional divider value used by the fractional rate generator to create the fractional component to the baud rate.
