Overview / Features

This product is a PCI Express bus-supported card designed for extending RS-232C compatible serial communication functionality on your PC. It has 2ch RS-232C-standard serial ports. With a 128byte built-in FIFO buffer for transmission and reception of each channel, the product supports a baud rate of up to 921,600bps. Up to 16 cards can be mounted on a single PC and the range COM1 - COM256 can be set. It also comes with a Windows/Linux driver, which allows cards to be used as OS-standard COM ports.

  • Max. 921,600bps RS-232C Serial Communication
    • It has 2ch RS-232C-standard serial ports. Baud rates from 2 to 921,600bps can be set for each port. When using the bundled [Standard COM Driver Software] and [Driver library API-PAC(W32)], baud rates from 15 to 921,600bps can be set.
  • Possibly used as Windows, Linux-standard COM ports, using the bundled driver library
    • Comes with a driver software that allows the cards to be used under Windows / Linux in the same way as COM ports on the PC. Under Windows, the product supports the OS-standard Win32 API communication function as well as Visual Basic MSComm. Under Linux, OS-standard tty driver`s standard-function can be used. In addition, supplies a diagnostic program to confirm hardware operation and to perform a communication test with equipment.
  • Max. 16 cards can be installed as configured in the range COM1 - COM256.
    • Up to 16 cards can be mounted on a single PC. COM1 - COM256 can be set using the device manager.
  • Each channel is equipped with separate 128-byte FIFO buffers for transmit and receive.
    • Employed a buffer memory 128-byte dedicated to transmission and 128-byte for each channel. These are FIFO format, useful for high speed communications and to reduce the load to the CPU when transmitting/receiving. As the device manager can be used to enable/disable the use of FIFO and set the FIFO trigger size, this permits operation to be adjusted to achiere optinal performance for your system.
  • The cards use the same easy-to-use 9-pin D-SUB connectors as are used on a PC.
    • The same 9pin D-SUB connector as a personal computer which is easy to use is adopted.
