(ASYNC) Not synchronized by a common timing signal. In asynchronous communication, each character can be transmitted at any time and is distinguished by a start bit and stop bit; in synchronous communication the start and stop bits are not needed as there is a regular time interval between transmissions. With asynchronous terminals, a transmission can be initiated at either end.
