The PEX2S952LP StarTech 2 Port Low Profile Native RS232 PCI Express Serial Card with 16950 UART turns a PCI Express slot into two RS232 (DB9) serial connections.

The card is constructed using a native single chip design that lets you harness the full capability offered by PCI Express (PCIe), while reducing the load applied to the CPU by as much as 48% over conventional bridge chip serial cards.

The PCI Express RS232 Serial Adapter Card is compatible with a broad range of operating systems including Windows® 7/ Server 2008 R2 / Vista/ XP/ 2000, Linux Kernel 2.6.11 to 4.11.x.
