PCI-COM232/2 and PCI-COM232/4

Dual and Quad Port RS-232, PCI-Bus Serial Communications Card

Features

  • Universal PCI, PCI-X, 3.3V and 5V compatible (Call for PCI-Express availability)
  • Two or Four RS-232 Serial Communication ports.
  • Throughput up to 921.6 Kbps.
  • 32-Bit PCI-bus Interface.
  • UART includes 16-Byte FIFO Buffer.
  • Compatible w/ MS-DOS, Windows, & Linux.
  • FCC and CE approved
The PCI-COM232/2 and PCI-COM232/4 are high speed, dual or quad-port, asynchronous serial communications card for use in PCI-bus computers. They are 4.625 inches long (117.5 mm) and may be installed in any five-volt PCI slot in IBM compatible computers. A separate male DB9 connector is provided for each port, and for the quad-port, a breakout cable is included that terminates in DB9 connectors. Each independent port supports RS-232 single-ended transmission/reception at baud rates up to 921.6 Kbps. An on-board crystal oscillator provides means for precise baud rate selection. The card is UART-type-16C550 compatible and includes a 16-byte transmit/receive buffer to protect against lost data in multitasking systems. Extensive software driver support is provided on CD. The card automatically configures with Windows Plug & Play functionality.

Information about our Free Software packages:

ACCES is proud to provide a full suite of software support with every Data Acquisition product. We are committed to supporting the most popular operating systems and platforms for our customers. Currently we are actively supporting Windows XP through Windows 10, including "Server 2008," "Embedded," and "Compact" flavors in both 32-bit and 64-bit for all plug-and-play products including PCI, PCI Express, USB, and more. Many products continue to ship with support for additional operating systems such as DOS, Windows 95, 98, Me, NT4, and 2000.

Samples

Among the software we deliver with our products are sample programs in a wide variety of programming languages. These samples are used to demonstrate the software interfaces to our products — and many can be used as-is in your production environments, or to test functionality of the devices out-of-the-box. We're currently actively supporting sample programs in Microsoft Visual C#, Visual Basic, Delphi, and Visual C/C++, with many devices including samples in Borland C/C++ 3.1 for DOS. Additionally we provide National Instruments LabVIEW compatible DLLs and many demonstration VIs for our devices.

Drivers

Drivers for various operating systems are also provided, including active support for Windows XP -> 10 — all in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, and including consumer, server, and embedded varieties — as well as the 3.x and 2.6 Linux kernels and recent OSX versions. Many products continue to ship with driver support for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT4, and Windows 2000, but support for these operating systems is considered deprecated.

Setup Programs and Utilites

Our Data Acquisition devices also include a graphical setup utility that walks you through the process of configuring any option jumpers or switches on the device, as well as explaining a little about the various connectors present.

Many devices also include utility programs - little tools to make your use of the device easier, such as WinRISC, a "Really Incredibly Simple Communications" terminal program that lets you get started instantly with serial devices.

"Register Level" Documentation

Besides all this software in all these languages and operating systems ACCES has a policy of open and transparent development: none of our lowest-level "register" interfaces are hidden from you — we document every register in every bus card, every command in every serial board, and every usb control transfer in every USB Data Acquisition board. These lowest-level interfaces allow you to develop for our products in ANY operating system or language, regardless of our actively supporting it or having a driver for it. We have customers actively developing in ADA, Android, Python, Java, MATLAB, Solaris, and more, just by referring to our complete low-level interface documentation! And we provide the full source code to all of our drivers, regardless of operating system, to give you an even bigger head start in your own development tasks.

No Fees or Royalties

All of this software is provided at no additional charge, and is licensed under any of a variety of flexible — and royalty free — options. Check out our software license explanation if you'd like more information..


Custom Software

ACCES also offers Custom Software Services for our products. Our prices are unbelievably low, often as inexpensive as free! If you need something tweaked to support your needs, or an entire enterprise application developed from scratch, it is definitely worth your time to inquire with us, first.
