Need a good PCIe serial port

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello there! biggrin.gif
I'm in need of a good, reliable and cheap RS232 serial port working on a PCIe slot. Sadly my MIVE completely lacks of this option...
I don't wanna spend too much over it though.

Any brand/model suggestion? Thanks!

Could always use a USB to Serial cable as they are cheaper and more widely available.

True, and I have it, but it is veeery slow. I'm programming PIC processors with it and info written could be unreliable as well.
