Over time, some computing applications such as in banking, retail and hospitality have come to require smaller sized systems while still supporting a large number of peripherals.
One way to ensure that your PCI boards can continue to be used across a wider range of systems is to use Quatech low profile PCI serial boards. These boards are mechanically similar to standard PCI boards, but use a shorter board and a different mounting bracket.
Quatech’s low profile PCI boards feature a universal PCI connector for either 3.3V or 5V signalling and brackets for both low profile & standard PC systems. This means they are compatible with any computer system that has standard 32-bit or 64-bit PCI slots, such as PC servers, thin clients and embedded systems.
As a result, these boards can be used with your current equipment, and will not have to be upgraded when you upgrade your system.
Quatech’s low profile serial board provide one, two or four independent serial ports on a single board using RS-232 or RS-422/485 communications. They provide speeds of up to 460.8 kbps for the one and two port versions and 921.6 kbps for the four-port version. They also offer 16554 UARTs with 16-byte FIFOs (16550 for SSCLP-100).
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000 and OS/2 operating systems are supported. All communications products manufactured by Quatech have a 5-year warranty.
