We recommend Quatech Serial cards, with the best construction and quality of all on the market. This card comes in 3 versions, creating either 1, 2 or 4 serial ports from a single PCMCIA card.

FEATURES (single port):
- PCMCIA card standard specification 2.1 compliant
- Support for Windows 95/98, Windows NT, OS/2,
     DOS/Windows 3.1x and SCO UNIX
- Selectable & shareable interrupt (IRQ 3-7, 9-12, 14, 15)
- Selectable I/O base address
- Default automatic configuration at next available COM port & IRQ

Features for the dual and quad cards are similar, adding appropriate features for interrupt sharing and com port assignments.

Please Note:   If you need to add two additional ports, some applications require exclusive interrupt usage, in which case you cannot use a dual card, but must instead use two singles.

Quatech Single Port Serial Card

Quatech's SSP-100 (shown above) is a PC-Card 2.1 compliant Type-II PCMCIA card which adds a single asynchronous serial interface to the host computer. The SSP-100 provides a standard RS-232 interface which is implemented with a 16550 UART to provide 16 byte transmit and receive FIFOs for increased performance in multitasking environments and for applications involving high data rates. 

The SSP-100 will be assigned to the lowest COM port available by default. However, users may select the particular COM port to which the SSP-100 is assigned. In addition, users may specify any interrupt level and any I/O space base address for the SSP-100.

All necessary software is included to install and configure the card for use with DOS/Windows 3.x, Windows 95/98,Windows NT 4.0 and OS/2. Support for SCO UNIX System V is available as an option.
