introduction
Thank you for purchasing this MANHATTAN ® Serial/Parallel Combo
PCI Card, Model 158251.
Compatible with most RS-232 peripherals, this card with two external
serial DB9 ports is an ideal solution for attaching two serial devices —
modems, barcode scanners, printers and more — and a parallel DB25
port through a single PCI card and two open rear expansion slots. Its
two high-speed 16C550 UART serial DB9 Com ports fully support PCI
IRQ sharing even if accessed simultaneously to help save valuable
resources for other expansion cards. The DB25 port with Enhanced
Parallel Port (EPP), Standard Parallel Port (SPP) and Enhanced
Capability Port (ECP) help support the faster transfer of large amounts
of data.
The easy-to-follow instructions in this manual help make installation of
the card quick and simple, so you’ll also soon be enjoying the benefits
of these additional features:
• Maximum 115.2 kbps throughput on each serial port
• Up to 1.5 MBps parallel throughput
• Universal bus power design for 5 V and 3.3 V
• Fully supports PCI IRQ sharing
• Automatically selects IRQ and IO address
• Lifetime Warranty
NOTE: To ensure proper operation, make sure that you complete the
driver installation before proceeding with the hardware installation.
