For more than 25 years, Moxa has dedicated a large percentage of its R&D effort to the design of multiport serial boards, and this effort has paid off once again to the benefit of end-users around the world. Moxa’s new “one-chip” PCI Express boards stand high above the crowd compared with other PCI Express boards on the market today. In fact, Moxa is the first manufacturer in the world to use an advanced one-chip PCIe-UART chip, which combines the PCIe bridge and UART on the same chip. The one-chip PCIe boards are designed for a longer MTBF and greater performance with baudrates up to 921.6 kbps. Moreover, instead of requiring users to open up the computer to set DIP switches and jumpers manually, one-chip PCIe provides a convenient software solution for configuring the serial interface and termination resistors, giving users the benefit of easy maintenance. One-chip PCIe features a 33% higher throughput and decreases CPU load by 48%, outperforming traditional boards that use separate chips for the PCIe bridge and UART. Moxa’s multiport serial boards have onboard LEDs to clearly indicate data transmit/receive status. This is very helpful for users, especially since troubleshooting can be done without opening up the computer. With this PCIe-UART, you can configure the serial interface and termination resistor by software instead of using a DIP switch and jumper. The absence of a DIP switch and jumper also makes these one-chip PCIe boards more user-friendly and easier to maintain since there is no need to open up the computer to adjust the settings manually. Furthermore, the one-chip design reduces manufacturing time and costs since fewer components are required. Moxa’s PCI Express boards support a wide range of drivers for desktop solutions (Windows 2000, XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 x86/x64) and server solutions (Windows 2003/2008/2012, with certification). Moreover, we also provide drivers for Linux, SCO Open Server 5/6, QNX 6, Windows XP Embedded, UnixWare 7.
