Advantech Launches 8-Port Intelligent RS-232 Universal PCI Communication Card



The PCI-1625U is an 8-port intelligent RS-232 universal PCI communication card starting at $225.

(Cincinnati, Ohio - 10/25/2006) - The eAutomation Group of Advantech introduces the PCI-1625U 8- port intelligent RS-232 universal PCI communication card. The PCI-1625U is virtually a self-contained computer that has an onboard DSP processor that will take over the processing load from the host PC.

The PCI-1625U has 1 MB of SRAM which can store serial data and reduce host CPU loading effectively. When the PCI-1625U initializes, it will download the driver software into its onboard DSP. There's a universal PCI connector that is compatible with both the 3.3 V PCI bus and the traditional 5 V PCI bus.

Included is a utility program called ICOM Tools that will test the PCI card performance by analyzing the port status. The menu commands and toolbar buttons of ICOM Tools act as a PC-based data scope that lets you set a trigger condition, capture the communications data, and monitor the signal status.

The PCI-1625U is designed for industrial applications where a PC needs to communicate with terminals, modems, or other instruments. You can install up to four PCI-1625U cards for total of 32 ports in any PCI bus-based PC.

The PCI-1625U starts at $225 and is available for purchase directly from Advantech at 1-800-205-7940 or from one of Advantech's North American distributors at eautomationpro.com/us.
