operation in high-speed serial applications, the board's high-performance 160950 UART includes 128-byte FIF0s, eight times larger than those found on standard 16550
The UART includes 9-bit framing support and is register compatible with legacy 16550
If high-speed printing, file transfers and downloading are important chores for your computer, install high-speed ports--a 16550
UART chip and a EPP parallel port.
The modems' PCMCIA interface provides more functionality than both the 16550
and new 16650 UART with its 64 byte buffer and automatic RTS flow control which allow; maximum throughput in multi-tasking environments.
The ProClass 288HC and PM288HC// are based on a 16550
UART, providing a 16-character buffer to enhance background and multi-tasking performance.
Both versions provide support for use of serial ports or non-intelligent multi-ports boards, data rates to 115200 bps, RTS/CTS and XON/XOFF flow control, inbound calling, use of the 16550
UART in FIFO mode, multiple communications program interfaces, collection of accounting records at the server, use of the client software on the server station, advanced port allocation features including concurrent usage, "camp-on," automatic line allocation retry and port grouping.
