PCI-1603 offers a versatile range of high-speed interfacing options. You can switch its ports between the popular RS-232 or noise-resistant current-loop. The card utilizes 16PCI952 UARTs with 128-byte FIFO buffer for faster and more reliable communication, especially under multi-tasking environments such as Windows operating systems.
The card utilizes 16PCI952 UART that buffers data into packets before sending it to the bus. This drastically reduces CPU load and avoids data loss when the system is busy and cannot process an interrupt quickly. These FIFO buffers make the PCI-1603 especially suitable for high speed serial I/O under Windows.
