View Full Version : PCI serial port

03-31-2011, 06:10 PM
That's right, I need a PCI card with at least one serial/RS232 port on it. I bought a usb-serial converter for my PIC programmer, but it doesn't work with my programmer apparently. the cheaper the better!

I never throw electronics out, unless it's broken beyond usability.

Those are the type that won' work with his stuff, unfortunately. It needs to be a PCI based one.

yea thanks though farlo, I appreciate you looking. the USB based ones won't work because they're a 5v as opposed to a 12v setup (so I've been told)

I may have one. Let me look tonight.

I know I have a paralell-pci card.

Too bad it ain't serial.
