I am trying to interface an RS422 to the UART on my MCU. Now, RS422 is differential. So, I understand that I need to have a differential to single ended converter IC. This is followed by a voltage level shifter to match Voh,Vol,Vih and Vil voltage levels of the MCU UART.
Other than this do I need any buffers or protocol convertyers ? The data is sent at standard baud rates of 460800, 230400, 115200, 57600, 38400, 19200, 9600, 4800 bps. Also, the UART standard rates are in baud, right ? How will it impact the bps. Because baud means symbols. For eg 9600baud = 9600x8bps.
