    Can anybody point me to a pic micro with at least 2, but preferably 3
    hardware serial interfaces, if such a beast exists.

    I have spent ages googling and searching the datasheets on the microchip
    website, but it is taking an age.

  2. On the Microchip site, if you select the section marker '8bit PIC
    microcontrollers', the page has little 'purple' search buttons next to the
    lines. Click on this, and you have a chart with hardware parameters you
    can select. Tick the box for '2 AUSART', and you immediately narrow it
    down to 8 chips.
    You can do the same with other parts of the family, depending on what
    performance/cost level you need.
    This button, saves a lot of work....
    I am assuming you mean 'async serial', since most of the PICs also have a
    synchronous serial port (implementing I2C, or SPI). For more async ports,
    it is common to add one of the SPI UART chips (Philips, and Exar do some
    nice ones).

    Best Wishes

    Thanks very much for your reply, this is exactly what I was looking for.
    Though I must admit being a little ashamed at not finding this filter on the
    Microchip site.

    Best Regards.
