Original Press Release:
1 PCI Slot = 5 USB Ports
The USB port is now the most popular new high-speed standard for peripheral communications. Yet older PCs may offer no USB ports, and even recent ones rarely sport more than two. That's why CyberResearch® offers a half-length PCI card that provides one internal and four external USB 2.0 ports.
Everything from keyboards, cameras, and scanners to data-acquisition and digital I/0 modules is now made better with USB communications. The reason is that USB 2.0 puts 480 Mbps at your command - more than an order of magnitude faster than even the speediest RS-422/485 cards.
The COU 105P PCI card from CyberResearch, Inc. provides 5 Type A USB 2.0 ports, each capable of moving data at 480 Mbps and fully backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices. With cascaded hubs, the five ports make it easy to connect as many as 127 USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices to this card.
Because USB provides power to the bus, many USB devices can operate without any additional power. Maximum cable length is 16.4 feet for 12 Mbps (USB 1.1)devices and 10 feet for 480Mbps (USB 2.0) devices. The card is compatible with Windows® 98/2000/ME/XP.
In addition to PCI 5-port USB 2.0 cards - now shipping from stock-CyberResearch, Inc., also offers standard and custom-built industrial PCs,as well as data-acquisition and motion-control systems. For more information,call Joe Tetreault at 800-341-2525, or visit www.cyberresearch.com.
