2-Port RS-232 Universal PCI Card
Overview of the Antaira MSC-102A 2-Port Serial Expansion Card
2-Port RS-232 Universal PCI Card | Antaira
Antaira Technologies MSC-102A is a PCI-based serial expansion card. Providing parallel expansion by adding additional serial RS-232 ports to a network computer. This multiport serial card uses two ultra-high performance 16C550 UARTS over the PCI slot.
The 16C550 UART within the MSC-102A serial card is the most widely accepted, PC-compatible chip set on the market. Transfer data rates of up to 115Kbps and 16-byte deep transmitter and receiver FIFOs. Deep FIFOs reduce the multiport serial cards CPU overhead, allowing high data rates.
For legacy applications the PCI resources have been arranged so that the serial ports will be located at standard I/O addresses for DOS environment.
The MSC-102A is the perfect PCI serial card upgrade to support all UART-compatible devices on a changing desktop computer that requires RS232 communication. The MSC-102 multi port serial card will have two individual serial db9 connectors.
