4-port RS-232 Low-Profile Universal PCI Communication Card, w/Surge Protection

PCI-1610UP Introduction

These RS-232/422/485 PCI communication cards are compatible with the PCI 2.2 bus specification for universal connectivity and low profile PCI cards. PCI-1604UP provides two independent RS-232 ports, while PCI-1602UP has two RS-422/485 ports. PCI-1610UP and PCI-1610AUP provide 4 RS-232 ports.To improve system performance, all cards allow
transmission rates up to 921.6 kbps. To increase reliability, the cards offer surge protection, protecting your system from abrupt high voltages up to 2,500 VDC. High-performance 16PCI952 and 16PCI954 UARTs with 128-byte FIFO, reduces the CPU load, making the cards especially suitable for multitasking environments.
The cards follow the Low Profile PCI MD1 standard. This standard has the same protocol and electronic definition as standard PCI, but the Low Profile PCI standard is smaller. Thus, the cards are suitable for embedded systems, and size-constrained environments. Moreover, all cards are equipped with an universal PCI connector, which allows support for traditional systems with 5 V signaling or newer systems with 3.3 V signaling.
Advantech also provides a convenient utility called ICOM Tools, to help test the PCI card’s performance by analyzing the port status. The menu commands and toolbar buttons of ICOM Tools acts as a PC-based data scope that lets you set a trigger condition, capture the communication data and monitor the signal status. ICOM Tools can be used with all series
of Advantech ICOM cards.
