The SS-AS1RS provides a reliable solution for Notebook PC to connect serial peripherals such as GPS receivers, serial printers/plotters, barcode scanners, digital cameras, PDAs, Cell Phones and fax/modems over its new Express Card Slots.
The Express Card provides a scalable, high-speed, serial I/O bus that maintains backward compatibility with CardBus applications and drivers. Its architecture defines a high-performance, point-to-point, scalable, serial bus at speed of 250Mbytes/sec. The SS-AS1RS is compact in size and low power requirements to support the major serial portable devices. The UART is the newest generation of the 16C950. It equipped a 128-byte deep data FIFO and auto-flow control features to speed up the data transfer to 921.6Kbps without the under-run and over-run problems. The SS-AS1RS is ideal for a wide variety of applications including field data collection, industrial control and monitoring. With its complete hardware and complete driver support, the SS-AS1RS is an ideal upgrade to support all UART-serial-compatible devices for the rapidly changing Notebook computer to preserve user¡¦s investment in serial interface.
