"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The RocketPort uPCI Octa/DB9 serial port expansion card is compatible with all current 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures. It provides eight "native" serial ports utilizing a single 32- or 64-bit PCI card slot. The serial ports with DB9 connectors support RS-232 serial communications at speeds up to 460 Kbps.

RocketPort products are designed with larger transmit-and-receive buffers than those available in a standard 16550 UART found in standard PC serial ports and low-end serial cards, enabling them to handle the transmission of large amounts of data reliably and efficiently.

They also utilize an on-board 36MHz processor, minimizing host CPU utilization. RocketPort products do not require the assignment of interrupts, simplifying installation and eliminating conflicts with other server cards. Drivers are available for popular operating systems. The product is fully compliant with the RoHS directive 2002/95/EC.


– RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC compliant
– On-board dedicated 36MHz RISC processor - minimizes
– Robust driver support - enables card to work seamlessly with popular operating systems
– RS-232 communications support - enables transmit-and-receive speeds up to 921 Kbps

– I/O mapping capabilities - simplifies installation, eliminates memory conflicts, and enables plug-and-play compatibility

– Universal PCI design supporting 3.3 and 5.0 Volt PCI bus architectures - ensures compatibility with all current PCI bus architectures

– Multiport serial expansion using a single slot - maximizes host expansion capabilities; adds additional COM ports using only one slot

– Transmit buffer 16 times larger, and receive buffers 64 times larger than a 16550 UART - helps ensure smooth, efficient data transfer
