Full-Duplex Communication/Half-Duplex Communication [Common Content]

Last Updated:05/25/2018

Question:

Full-duplex communication/half-duplex communication [common content]

Answer:

• Full-duplex communication method
 Bidirectional communication method that enables simultaneous communication by using two sets of single-directional communication channels
 (e.g., UART, SPI, and CSI)

• Half-duplex communication method
 Bidirectional communication method that uses a single set of bidirectional communication channels and switches between sending and receiving
 Although the communication speed is slower than that in full-duplex communication, the number of communication channels can be reduced.
