PCI Serial Port series
Quick Installation Guide
Introductions
The PCI Serial Port series includes the PCI 1S, 2S, 4S and 8S cards. All of
them provide high-speed serial I/O (RS232C) data transmission feature for
various kinds of serial port devices.
1. Key Features and Benefits
• Conforms to PCI v2.2 Plug-N-Play
• Full support for Windows-base applications
• Reduces CPU load and improves system performance dramatically
• IRQ sharing feature eliminates IRQ conflicts
• Built-in FIFO buffers dramatically increase data transmit/receive speed,
especially under Windows multitasking environment
• High-speed serial port (9-pin) works with 56K V.90 external modems,
ISDN terminal adapters, PDAs and other serial port devices
2. System Requirements
• Pentium or equivalent computer with an available 32-bit PCI slot
• Windows 95b/98/98SE/ME/NT4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003
• Linux kernel 2.4.x or later

3. Installation
General instructions for installing the card are provided below, since the
design of computer cases and motherboards vary. Refer to your computer
reference manual for further information, if needed.
Caution: Static Electricity Discharge may permanently damage your system.
To avoid possible static electricity discharge during the installation, please
follow the guidelines below:
l Discharge any static electricity build up in your body by touching a
large grounded metal surface or the computer case (if plugged in),
for a few seconds.
l During the installation, avoid any contact with internal parts.
Handle cards only by their external edges.
3.1 Hardware Installation
1. Turn OFF the power to your computer and any other connected
peripheral devices.
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the computer.
3. Remove the computer’s cover, select an available 32-bit PCI slot.
4. Remove the slot bracket by unscrewing the holding screw and
sliding it out. Save the screw for securing the board after it’s installed.
Follow the same procedure for the connector bracket.
Remark: If your computer chassis is low profile type, please change
the attached low profile bracket before you plug the card into the PCI
slot. Only the LP PCI 1S-L, LP PCI 2S Duet and LP PCI 4S Quartet
support the low profile computer chassis.
5. To install the PCI I/O card, carefully align the board’s bus connector to
the expansion slot on the motherboard. Push the board down firmly, but
gently, until it is well seated.
