I've added the schematics and detailed function description. I'll also add the waveform details and timing adjustment instructions - unfortunately an oscilloscope is needed to exactly match the serial port TxD, byte and bit timers. I hope that the need for oscilloscope can be eliminated by adding some LEDs and using software to feed special calibration patterns to the serial port.
