Asynchronous protocol vs Synchronous protocol

This page Asynchronous protocol vs Synchronous protocol describes difference between Asynchronous protocol and Synchronous protocol.

As mentioned in the Asynchronous communication vs Synchronous communication page, asynchronous protocol uses start and stop bits in the individual character transmission, while synchronous protocol uses 2 or more SYN characters at the beginning of the transmission.

The example of the asynchronous protocol is Xmodem protocol and the example of synchronous protocol is IBM's Bisync protocol.
