Connect Tech Mini PCI Express Serial - Mini PCI Express Two Port Serial Cards

Adds Two RS-232, RS422 or RS485 Interfaces via Mini PCIe Socket

Introduction

Connect Tech’s MPG00x series are rugged Mini PCIe modules that are ideal for adding extra serial port capabilities to any system with minimal increase in overall system size and power consumption. Choose from PCI Express x1 lane or a USB-2 host bus interface. Various modules are available offering switchable RS-232/422/485, optional isolation and full modem control signals. The wide operating temperature and latching connector and cabling solution allow these modules to be used in harsh environments.

Compatibility with a large variety of popular operating systems allows these boards to be easily integrated into a wide array of new and existing systems.
