Not a microprocessor[edit]

A UART is not a microprocessor! This has been in the article for years! --Wtshymanski 15:16, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

16550 vs 16550A[edit]

Early 16550 chips had a bug, which allowed them to only really function as 16450 chips, this was fixed with the 16550A and later revisions.

It would be nice to have the dates they were first released listed somewhere.
