I am using Atmega 32
Application needs 2 Rx lines.
In fact using GSM modem and GPS module.
It needs communication with both, but I need one at a time only.
GSM needs both Rx and Tx, : so giving the serial port to this.
One more Rx is needed for GPS module.
I wish to use 74LS257 multiplexer to select one of the two inputs (from GPS or GSM) under program control.
I wish to connect 74LS257 between port pins and Max232.

Is there any issue in connecting 74LS257 between Atmega32 and MAX 232 for selecting input Rx line.
Any help, suggestion or link to guide further is welcome.

Hi,

as far as i see the 257 should work.

you could use an analog multiplexer with rail to rail IO,

or you could use an ATMEGA324 with 2 UARTS.
