StarTech 8 Port Low Profile RS232 PCI Serial Card with 16950 UART

The PCI8S950LP 8 Port Low Profile RS232 PCI Serial Card with 16950 UART lets you turn a single low profile PCI slot into eight RS232 (DB9) serial connections.

The unique design of the serial card and included break out cable feature a VHDCI (Very High Density Cable Interconnect) connector, enabling the addition of 8 serial interfaces while only using a single expansion slot. With the included full height bracket, this card can be easily installed in almost any computer case.

The 8-port serial adapter card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems, including Windows® 2000/XP/2003/Vista/Server 2008 R2/7, as well as Linux Kernel 2.4.x and up. A cost-effective solution for connecting industrial process control and monitoring equipment, serial modems, POS devices, ISDN terminal adapters and more to your system.

Backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support.
