This application report describes how the TMS470 high-end timer (HET) peripheral can be used to implement multiple additional full-duplex high-speed universal asynchronous receiver transmitter (UART) interfaces with interrupt capability and zero ARM7 CPU overhead. The solution is provided for both TMS470R1A256 and TMS470R1B1M devices, but the information applies to other TMS470 family members as well.
