intercharacter interval
In asynchronous transmission, the time interval between the end of the stop signal of one character and the beginning of the start signal of the next character. Note: The intercharacter interval may be of any duration. The signal sense of the intercharacter interval is always the same as the sense of the stop element, i.e., "1" or "mark."
