RS485 Hardware or Software control, doubt


I have Geode board with RS485 half duplex, so it is necesary to control RTS signal to change mode of bus transceiver.

Is it possible to do it automatic without any line of code in my program??

Best regards.

No. Only your program knows when it is appropriate for the hardware to be listening or talking.
