The PCI8S950LP 8 Port Low Profile RS232 PCI Serial Card with 16950 UART lets you turn a single low profile PCI slot into eight RS232 (DB9) serial connections.
The unique design of the serial card and included break out cable feature a VHDCI (Very High Density Cable Interconnect) connector, enabling the addition of 8 serial interfaces while only using a single expansion slot. With the included full height bracket, this card can be easily installed in almost any computer case.
The 8-port serial adapter card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems, including Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/Server 2008 R2/7, as well as Linux Kernel 2.4.x and up. A cost-effective solution for connecting industrial process control and monitoring equipment, serial modems, POS devices, ISDN terminal adapters and more to your system.
Mechanical design flaw
This review is from: StarTech 8 Port Low Profile RS232 PCI Serial Card with 16950 UART Model PCI8S950LP
Pros: Electrically good, works as expected
Cons: The full-size bracket with the connector is manufactured wrongly - the card does not fit in a PC chassis (we use HP Z620 workstations). We compared the bracket to the card from another supplier (that fits), and we see that StarTech designed the bracket with the connector centered on the bracket, which seems to be wrong. The other cards (which fit) have connector off-center, which is correct, because PCB is not centered in the chassis opening.
