Product Description

GTEK's Multi-Channel Intelligent Serial Boards with Dynamemory are powerful serial enhancements to various types of commercial, industrial and communications applications:

  • Data Acquisition
  • Machine Control
  • Point-of-Sale Terminals
  • Bulletin Board Systems.
  • The PCSS-8FA/8IA works with all these high level compilers: Basic, C++, C, Pascal, FORTRAN and ADA

Other Features:

  • 8 ports per board for expansion and flexibility
  • I/O mapped - no host memory used
  • Dynamemory configuration from 32K to 128K
  • Supports DMA transfer
  • Comes standard with RS-232 interface
  • All queuing of data and status is handled by the coprocessor so there is no load on the host computer
  • All channels can be interrupt driven for transmit and receive with automatic handshaking available using CTS/DTR or XON/XOFF
  • Map channels to COM1: through COM:4
  • Initialize all channels at boot
  • Works under DOS, Windows, OS/2 and native Windows 95 driver
  • Up to 127 ports per computer can be configured
