I'm going to be using an 8 MHz crystal to run my microcontroller at 16 MIPS (PLL 4x, 2 cycle instructions.) However, 8 MHz doesn't divide into any UART frequencies AFAIK… so how critical are these frequencies? I plan to use 115,200 baud.
Can UART run within ±1%? If this doesn't work, what frequency should I use? (I would like to get as near to 16 MIPS as possible, for maximum processing speed.) If it matters, I'm using a PIC24FJ64GA004.
