4.b. Baud Rates

The qik can handle baud rates between 1200 and 38,400 bps. In its default state, the qik will start up in an automatic baud detection phase, where it waits for you to send it the byte 0xAA (170). The qik will detect the baud rate you are using from this byte and proceed to the normal operation phase. If you have the fixed-baud jumper in place, the qik will skip the autodetect phase and will instead immediately begin normal operation at a baud rate of 38,400 bps. Please see Section 3.d for more information.
