Today’s computer’s do not include either Serial (RS232) or Parallel (Printer) ports, relying mostly on USB and WiFi(tm).
However, there are many legacy applications that still need these tried and trusted interfaces. Examples include Modems, ISDN and redundantly protected business communications. Many professional outputdevices still use the fast Parallel port and this includes many industrial and military applications.
The newly developed PCI-1P2S features BOTH Serial(RS232) and Parallel ports within a single, Plug n’ Play PCI interface. Split over two, full height riser cards for each port type, means you can easily install the PCI-1P2S in almost any PC, Workstation, Kiosk or Server.
Compatible with most popular operating systems including Windows(tm), DOS(tm) and Linux(tm) runtimes means you now have total legacy connectivity. Features • Industry-standard Serial (RS232) 9-Pin Ports x2
• Industry-standard Parallel Port (IEEE-1284) Port x1
• Plug n’ Play 32-Bit PCI interface card design
• Two full-height riser brackets, for serial and parallel
• Parallel port supports ECP and EPP modes
• RISC architecture improves performance and lifespan
• Ideal for legacy apps: modems, printers, industrial etc
• Compatible with DOS(tm), Windows(tm)XP, 2000(tm)
• Windows(tm)7, Windows(tm)8, Windows(tm)10
• Compatible with Linux(tm) runtimes

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Serial ATA, or SATA, is a relatively new storage technology that is now being adopted in computers. It is the successor to Parallel ATA. SATA allows for faster transfers between the hard disk and the system, uses thinner cables and is easier to physically install

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.
