Low Profile 2 Port PCI Express RS-232 Serial Card by StarTech.com
The PEX2S553LP low profile/half-height PCI Express Serial Card turns a PCI Express slot into two RS232 (DB9) serial connections. The card is constructed using a native single chip design that lets you harness the full capability offered by PCI Express (PCIe), while reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional bridge chip serial cards.
The PCI Express RS232 Serial Adapter Card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems, including Windows® 2000/XP/2003/Vista™/Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 (32 and 64-bit), Linux Kernel 2.6.11 and up, and ships with a low profile/half-height bracket installed but includes an optional full profile bracket that lets you add 2 serial ports to virtually any computer (regardless of the case form factor).
This product is a replacement for the PEX2S552LP card.
• Ships with half-height/low profile mounting bracket, includes optional standard profile bracket.
• Single chip design optimises speed and reliability.
• Native single-chip, single lane PCI Express.
• Selectable power output on pin 9 for the serial port.

• Automated out-of-band flow control using CTS/RTS and DSR/DTR.
