2 Port PCI-E 16C950 Serial Card from StarTech.com
StarTech.com 2 Port PCI-Express 16C950 Serial Card, For Self Service Kiosks, POS Applications, Serial Devices, ATMs
The adapter card is based on a native single chip design, that allows you to harness the full capability of PCI Express (PCIe) - providing optimum reliability and speed while reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional (bridge chip) serial cards.
The RS232 Serial Adapter Card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems, including Windows® and Linux (Kernel 2.6.11 and up).
Plus, the adapter card includes an optional half-height/low profile bracket that allows the card to be installed in virtually any computer case – making it that much easier to add serial ports to a PCI Express enabled computer, regardless of the size of the computer case.

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.
