Two Port RS-232 PCI Card
- For low profile or standard PCI
- Hardware reset button
- Operating system independent
- Allows cPCI cards on a desktop
- Breadboarding area for electrical circuit assembly and testing
This passive extender card allows developers to mount a CompactPCI card in a standard Universal 3.3V or 5V PCI system, avoiding the need for a dedicated CompactPCI system for development work. The design also includes a reset button, for convenient push-button resetting of the test card without resetting the host computer.
This feature is extremely useful when debugging hardware interactions requiring a hardware "clean slate". (This is a hardware reset only. It does not restore the PCI configuration space.)
