BROCKTON, Mass., 17 Jan. 2007. Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions in Brockton, Mass., is announcing the latest versions of its multiport serial controllers, the Apollo (Model 4022P) and Saturn (Model 4522P).

The Apollo and Saturn multiports are RoHS-compliant cards engineered for high-speed, high-throughput military and industrial applications.

The Apollo and Saturn multiports support SPARC Solaris and Linux drivers. The Apollo multiport offers four ports from one PCI bus slot with modem support on all ports. Optimizing performance with a 128-byte FIFO data buffer on each port, the Apollo multiport's on-board hardware and software flow control on all ports assures data integrity.

The Saturn multiport is available with four ports from one PCI bus slot, and each port is assignable for synchronous or asynchronous communications. Compatible with Sun synchronous communications protocols, the Saturn multiport offers optional synchronous communications protocol software for Sun Solaris, including X.25 and HDCL LAPB.

The Apollo and Saturn Multiports are Universal PCI board compatible with PCI Local Bus Specification Revision 2.2 and operate in either a 5- or 3.3-volt signaling environment. Interface options include RS-232 or RS-422/RS-485 with DB-25 connectors via an external breakout box.

With data transfer rates as fast as 256 kilobits per second synchronous and 230.4 kilobits per second asynchronous, full duplex, the Apollo and Saturn Multiports are ideal for modem connectivity, Internet access, remote access, and real-time data feeds.

Industrial and military users can employ the Apollo and Saturn Multiports to access public data networks, link central locations to branch offices, connect high-speed modem banks and DSUs, and add peripherals to department LANS.
