<protocol> A bit which signals the start of transmission of a character on a serial line.
For an RS-423 signal, the line is normally at logical zero which there is no data and the start bit is a logical one.
The zero-one transition tells the receiver when to start sampling the signal to extract the data bits.
[Is this upside-down?]
