8-bit AVR Microcontrollers

Disabling the Transmitter

When writing the TX Enable bit in the USART Control and Status Register n B (UCSRnB.TXEN) to zero, the disabling of the transmitter will not become effective until ongoing and pending transmissions are completed, i.e., when the Transmit Shift register and Transmit Buffer register do not contain data to be transmitted. When disabled, the transmitter will no longer override the TxDn pin.
