Price request Datasheet

The PCI-SI08BXS-SYNC board is an eight channel serial interface card which provides a simple synchronous serial interface capability for PCI applications. The PCI-SIO8BXS-SYNC combines a flexible parallel/serial converter and 16 external FIFOs to provide eight fully independent synchronous serial channels. These features, along with a high performance PCI interface engine, give the PCI-SIO8BXS-SYNC unsurpassed performance in a serial interface card.

The PCI-SIO8BXS-SYNC features software configurable cable transceivers (RS422, RS232 and others). The PCI-SIO8BXS-SYNC is based on the four channel SIO4BX product line from General Standards Corporation. In order to maintain software compatibility, the PCI-SIO8BXS-SYNC is implemented as two independent four channel SIO4BX-SYNC cards.
