Description

The PCIe-800 PCI Express 8-port serial I/O card is a plug and play high-speed serial I/O expansion cards for the PCI Express bus. Connecting to a PCI Express bus on your computer, the PCI Express 8-port serial I/O card instantly adds eight RS-232 serial I/O communication ports to your system. The PCI Express 8-port serial I/O cards are designed to utilize the Exar XR17V358 PCI Express to UART chip. The PCIe-800 supports high-speed data rate up to 921.6kbps. Each serial port is fully compatible with 16C550 UART, with enhanced feature of 256 bytes TX and RX FIFO buffer for higher performance.

The PCI Express 8-port serial I/O card is an advanced and high efficient solution for serial data communication and industrial automation applications.

PCI Express I/O Cards Driver

For all the newer linux kernels the support for PCIe is already,But if you intend to use the Enhanced features of the device(i.e. Auto RTS/CTS, Auto RS485 etc) or enable disable MPIO, in that case you will need the custom driver.
