RocketPort ® Universal PCI Octa DB9

RocketPort universal PCI 8-Port serial card with DB9M fanout cable

Part Number: 99342-1

  • RoHS2 compliant under CE
  • Universal PCI design supporting 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures – ensures compatibility with all current PCI bus architectures
  • I/O mapping capabilities – simplifies installation, eliminates memory conflicts, and enables plug-and-play compatibility
  • Multiport serial expansion using a single slot – maximizes host expansion capabilities; adds additional COM ports using only one slot
  • On-board dedicated 36MHz RISC processor
  • RS-232 communications support – enables transmit-and-receive speeds up to 460 Kbps
  • Transmit buffer 16 times larger, and receive buffers 64 times larger than a 16550 UART – helps ensure smooth, efficient data transfer
  • Robust driver support – enables card to work seamlessly with popular operating systems

The RocketPort uPCI Octa/DB9 serial port expansion card is compatible with all current 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures. It provides eight "native" serial ports utilizing a single 32- or 64-bit PCI card slot. The serial ports with DB9 connectors support RS-232 serial communications at speeds up to 460 Kbps. RocketPort products are designed with larger transmit-and-receive buffers than those available in a standard 16550 UART found in standard PC serial ports and low-end serial cards, enabling them to handle the transmission of large amounts of data reliably and efficiently. They also utilize an on-board 36MHz processor, minimizing host CPU utilization. RocketPort products do not require the assignment of interrupts, simplifying installation and eliminating conflicts with other server cards. Drivers are available for popular operating systems. The product is fully compliant with the RoHS2 directive under CE.
