Overview

This 2 Port ExpressCard-based Serial Card lets you add 2 RS232 serial ports to your laptop or ExpressCard equipped desktop computer, using an available ExpressCard slot.

Featuring 128-byte FIFO communication, and a high performance 16C950 UART, the ExpressCard Serial Adapter card offers baud rates up to 115.2Kbps, which ensures peak communication with your serial peripheral devices.

Compatible with ExpressCard /34mm and ExpressCard 54mm card slots, the 2 Port Serial ExpressCard includes a slot spacer for greater security while installed in 54mm slots.
