    what would be the disadvantage of removing U1 and all connected parts on
    receiving side and connecting C1 directly to RXD grounded through input
    impedance resistor ? Now that's inexpensive :)

    As for the protection of RXD from spikes, I would consider the built-in
    clamp diodes (some microcontrollers have them) together with R2.
