Looking for an 8-bit MCU with minimum 5 UART peripheral ports

Hello
 
I am looking for an MCU that has min 5 (or maybe more) UART ports in the hardware. How can I search for this?

    When you use the abive link, you will discover that there are only three PIC parts, and 20 AVR parts with enough UARTs.
    The big question is, do you need to be communicating on all 5 ports simultaneously?
    If not, then a part with one or two UARTs and a PPS peripheral may well be adequate.

    @ric is correct - you can see an example of how to do this in TB3151 (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/Appnotes/90003151A.pdf) which shows something similar but with the MSSP peripheral and even includes some example code.
