RocketPort ® Universal PCI 8J

RocketPort universal PCI 8-Port serial card with RJ11 serial ports

Part Number: 99415-2

  • Universal PCI design supporting 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures
  • I/O mapping capabilities
  • Multiport serial expansion using a single slot
  • On-board dedicated 44MHz RISC processor
  • RS-232 software selectable serial ports
  • Edge-mounted serial ports
  • Transmit buffer 16 times larger, and receive buffers 64 times larger than a 16550 UART
  • Robust driver support
 

The Comtrol RocketPort uPCI 8J serial port expansion card provides eight "native" serial ports utilizing a single PCI card slot and is compatible with all current 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures. The RJ11 serial ports, mounted on the edge of the card, support RS-232 serial communications at speeds up to 460 Kbps. Every RocketPort serial card features the high-performance RocketPort ASIC chip, consisting of a dedicated 44MHz processor that minimizes host CPU utilization and larger transmit-andreceive buffers than those of 16550 UART chips used in standard PC serial ports and low-end serial cards. RocketPort ASIC technology enables these cards to outperform other serial expansion cards by handling the transmission of large amounts of data more reliably and efficiently. Additionally, RocketPort products do not require the assignment of interrupts, simplifying installation and eliminating conflicts with other server cards. The product is fully compliant with the RoHS 2 directive under CE.
