16-Port RS-232 PCI Express Card (Serial Cables Included)

Antaira Technologies introduces the MSC-216A multiport RS-232 serial card that connects to the MCI Express I/O adapter. The 16 port serial RS232 card utilizes a 16C950-type UART to increase throughput and reduce CPU loading. The MSC-216A multi port serial card is designed for client or server applications to provided instant COM port expansion along the PCI Express bus (PCIE). 

By using the PCI Express bus, the user is able to maintain backwards compatibility with PCI applications/drivers while providing a scalable, high-performance serial I/O interface. The architecture defines a high-performance, point-to-point, scalable, serial bus at speed of 250Mbytes/sec to 4GBytes/sec.

The MSC-216A RS232 serial card is fully PCI Express Plug-and-Play compatible and no IRQ and I/O address conflict problems. The MSC-216A provides the scalability to quickly adapt to new PCI Express technologies with legacy equipment.
