Features
Note: The UC-232A installs as a virtual port driver on Com3. As
such it does not support devices, such as serial mice, that
require an IRQ number or IO Address.
The UC-232A provides mobile phones, PDAs, digital cameras,
modems and ISDN terminal adapters with high quality serial
connections at a data transfer rate of over 500 Kbps. It make the
USB interface transparent to the peripherals, allowing them to
easily interface with the USB, eliminating the setup hassle found
with traditional serial port connections. As a USB Specification
compliant device, the UC-232A also supports energy-saving
suspend and resume operations.
The UC-232A USB Serial adapter provides an external
plug-and-play RS-232 serial connection for computers,
notebooks, laptops, and handheld computing devices that
support the USB specification. It comes with a standard DB-9
Male connector for the peripherals to plug into, and an attached
35 cm USB cable with a type A plug for connecting to the
computer’s USB port, or to a USB hub.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) port technology has emerged in
response to the proliferation of external peripheral devices
(scanners, digital cameras, removable drives, etc.), that are
increasingly being connected to the latest generation of
computers. It is faster than traditional bus ports and, since it
does not require any IRQs, the problem of IRQ conflict is
eliminated so more devices can be attached to the system.
