In most questions the fact that synchronous communication is possible, too, is not relevant, so would make more sense.

Therefore I think it would be a good idea to merge into and create a synonym.

I had enough rep on the uart tag to suggest the synonym, now it needs up or down votes.

Edit: As PeterJ has pointed out, the voting is done at the Synonyms page for the tag https://electronics.stackexchange.com/tags/uart/synonyms

Alternatively, you can see all tag synonyms currently up for vote here: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/tags/synonyms

    \$\begingroup\$ The minimum 5 rep on the tag is an unnecessary nuissance IMO. Does not having the 5 rep mean I can't have an opinion on this? \$\endgroup\$ – radagast Dec 5 '13 at 10:44
  • \$\begingroup\$ @radagast, yes that's how it works. I had 6 on that tag so was able to vote but many times in the past have seen an obvious synonym I can't suggest / vote on so agree it's a pain. It's not 5 rep either - you need to have five upvoted questions or answers (minus any downvotes) on the tag. \$\endgroup\$ – PeterJ Dec 5 '13 at 11:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ @radagast mainly, yes. If you don't have a positive hand in the tag, then you don't get a potentially negative say in the tag's handling. Besides, +5 isn't too hard to get. \$\endgroup\$ – Passerby Dec 5 '13 at 15:06

    \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby: "Besides, +5 isn't too hard to get." I'm not too sure. It would require me to ask a question about UARTs and get an upvote on that (but I have no questions!) or add a superfluous answer to an existing thread, and despite that get upvotes. Do you see what I mean? \$\endgroup\$ – radagast Dec 5 '13 at 17:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby Upvoted the synonym. \$\endgroup\$ – Anindo Ghosh Dec 5 '13 at 17:33
  • \$\begingroup\$ The synonym is now active \$\endgroup\$ – W5VO Dec 16 '13 at 15:55
