Startech 2S1P PCI Express Serial Parallel Combo Card with Breakout Cable Startech 2S1P PCI Express Serial Parallel Combo Card with Breakout Cable

The PEX2S1P553B 2S1P PCI Express Serial Parallel Combo Card with Breakout Cable combines the functionality of Parallel and Serial cards, adding 2 RS232 serial ports and 1 parallel port through a single PCI Express (PCIe) slot.

Suitable for almost any computer, the card offers a low profile/half-height design and includes an optional full-height bracket. The included break-out cable uses a single connector on the card to deliver 3 ports, avoiding crowded connections that can occur with fixed/static ports. Compatible with a broad range of operating systems including DOS, Windows® 7/Server 2008 R2/Vista/XP/Server 2003/2000/98SE (32/64 bit), Linux and Mac OS X.

The card also features a native single-chip design that provides improved speed and reliability while reducing the CPU load by as much as 48% over conventional (bridge chip) cards.

This product is a replacement for our PEX2S1P552B card.

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