PCI Communication Cards

TEDIA PCI communication cards add extra COM port interfaces to the PC systems equipped with PCI bus. The cards provide RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 interface standards in various combinations. Selected PCI communication cards provide optical isolated ports.

The optical isolated cards from the 2nd generation may be extended to provide additional surge protection. For more information see safety guidelines for preventing overvoltage damage.

Software support

TEDIA Info CD

The communication PCI cards are supplied together with TEDIA Info CD, containing system drivers for the following OS:

All drivers mentioned above are available in the Download section.

General-purpose communication PCI cards - second generation

The cards of the second generation are suitable for use in 5V PCI bus (common 32-bit PCI bus in most PCs) and 3.3V PCI bus (usually 64-bit PCI buses or PCI-X buses at server motherboards).

OX16PCI954 (OXmPCI954) Controller features

The TEDIA PCI bus cards are based on the Oxford Semiconductor controller (OX16PCI954 or OXmPCI954) that provides PCI bus interface, 4 efficient UARTs (16C950 standard) and parallel interface in one circuit.
