SCLP Series - Low Profile PCI Cards
Quatech RS-232 and RS-422/485 UPCI boards completely meet the PCI 2.3 specification for Universal connectivity and Low Profile cards, as well as all other aspects of the specification so that you can be certain that every Quatech Universal Low Profile PCI card will function properly and perform reliably in your system.
The footprint of the new RS-422/485 and RS-232 Low Profile PCI card was designed to provide greater flexibility for embedded systems, thin-clients, and desktop and server environments. The cards are mechanically similar to standard PCI cards, but use a shorter board and a different mounting bracket.
The ideal solution for adding serial connectivity to a wide variety of desktop, server and embedded systems, Quatech Serial PCI and Low Profile Serial Universal PCI cards are the most reliable in the industry.
Quatech Serial Low Profile PCI cards utilize a single PCI slot to provide two independent asynchronous serial ports that share a single interrupt. Multi-port versions available with 2, 4 or 8-ports, requiring only one slot to connect. The cards include a fan out cable with independent DB-9 male connectors. All PCI registers are properly implemented, so you can be assured that Quatech boards will be good citizens on the PCI bus. Serial port connections are made via DB-9 male connectors and are implemented with 16550 UARTs containing 16-byte FIFOS and data rates up to 115.2 kbps. To maintain maximum signal integrity, a four-layer board design is used to insure maximum protection versus noise propagation throughout the communication lines.
