How can we set pl011 uart with transmit fifo and receive fifo enable in raspberry pi?

1 Answer 1


You don't have to do anything.

The PL011 UART is enabled by default as device /dev/ttyAMA0. The Linux driver handles the FIFOs and has additional buffering.

  • Also...I believe if you disabled it at some point and want to re-enable it you can do so via sudo raspi-config under advanced options in the newest version of Raspbian?.
