"As software serial doesn't use dedicated hardware there are some compromises:
Baud rates significantly above 9600 baud are unlikely to be reliable
Software serial reception will become increasingly unreliable the higher the CPU load."
In my application, I use soft serial (rx=D5, tx=D6). I get bursts of 60+ bytes (5x a second) from an external source. I find that anything beyond 2400 baud increases errors in the data received. What's the experience of others?
