The 1-Port Low-Profile Native PCI Express Serial Card from StarTech with 16950 UART adds an RS-232 (DB-9) serial port with data rates up to 460 Kbps to a computer through an available low-profile PCIe slot. It relies on a native, single-chip design (Oxford OXPCIe952) that harnesses the capability of true PCI Express, ensuring maximum performance and reliability and reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional (bridge chip) serial cards.
The RS-232 serial card features a half-height PCIe mounting bracket that is designed specifically for low-profile/small form factor computer cases, and includes an optional standard height bracket as well. It is compatible with a broad range of operating systems including Windows and Linux for easy integration into mixed environments.
