Posted by Squarell Technology on 09 December 2013 10:29 AM

The Baudrate is the transmission speed of a data line (how many times a signal changes per second). The baudrate is the rate at which information is transferred in a communication channel. In the serial port context, "9600 baud" means that the serial port is capable of transferring a maximum of 9600 bits per second.
