Data Throughput and the MCP215X
Throughput is based on many factors, some of which are determined by the Secondary Device (Host Controller + MCP215X) and others determined by the Primary Device. This application note will focus on what techniques can be used on the interface between the Host Controller and the MCP215X.
This application note discusses techniques which will help the data transfer throughput between an IrDA® Standard Primary Device and Embedded System to be optimized. The Embedded System (Secondary Device) uses a MCP215X device for the IrDA Standard communication (IrCOMM 9-wire ?cooked? service class). Figure 1 shows a typical IrDA® Standard system.
All timing measurements and screen captures in this application note are performed using a Palm Tungsten T2 PDA as the Primary Device. Using a different Primary Device may give different results.
