INTRODUCTION
The TP32 is a PCI Express based parallel
expansion add-in card to provide a connectivity
solution for today’s PC systems. It provides dual
ultra-high performance bi-directional parallel
ports that only share one IRQ from the system.
PCI Express provides a scalable, high-speed,
serial I/O bus that maintains backward
compatibility with PCI applications and drivers. Its
architecture defines a high-performance, pointto-point, scalable, serial bus at speed of
250Mbytes/sec
to
4GBytes/sec
(and
8Gbytes/sec in the future).

The card is fully PCI Express Plug-and-Play
compatible and no IRQ and I/O address conflict
problems. The TP32 provides the scalability
to quickly adapt to new PCI Express technologies.
It allows you to add parallel connectivity as
needed. The complete product line offers many
choices help you to expand I/O capability with
your requirements.
I/O Hardware
The TP32 equipped one IEEE1284 compliant
SPP, EPP and ECP parallel port that fully support
the existing Centronics interface. For legacy
applications, the PCI resources have been
arranged so that the parallel port can be
located at standard I/O address.
