#187724 - Solved
Responding to: Raj Nambiar's previous message
Solved the noise issues. The main change I made was

1. Insert Ferrite bead + 100 ohm between board ground and remote RS232 ground.
2. Insert Ferrite bead + 330 ohms in Rx line of RS232 (incoming RS232 line).
3. Insert FB + 330R in Tx of local MAX232. (Not really required..)

Chip is very sensitive to noise from serial port side. It simply hangs. Our 100 MBPS ethernet board (designed using wiznet 5300 + F340 at 48 MIPs) works very well under the same noisy conditions). Inserting 100 ohms + FB between MAX 232 AND F232RL also seemed to help.
