01.11.2001 - Connect Tech Unleashes the Mighty Titan

Connect Tech Inc. brings its design expertise to the CompactPCI marketplace with the introduction of its newest multi-port I/O adapter, the Titan/cPCI. Following a tradition of producing cost-effective boards while maintaining high performance and quality, Connect Tech’s Titan offers a number of features on its small, 3U CompactPCI form factor. This flexible board includes two or four ports of jumper selectable RS-232 or RS-485 configuration, the option for front or rear I/O, and support for all of the most popular operating systems. The Titan is capable of baud rates of 1.8342 Mbps on RS-485 and 230.4 Kbps on RS-232, while offering multi-strike surge protection on every signal of every port, ensuring excellent performance and reliability for your communication needs. State of the art 16C950-style UARTs provide 128 bytes of transmit and receive FIFO buffers, improving overall system performance. It is fully compliant with CompactPCI bus specification PICMG TM 2.0 R3.0. “I’m very excited that we are able to build on our foundation of 16 years of design experience and expand in new directions,” said David Worthen, President of Connect Tech. “Offering CompactPCI support in addition to our standard line of multi-port serial adapters further ensures we can provide our customers with the quality solutions they require.” The Titan/cPCI offers the ease of Plug and Play functionality, and is backed by Connect Tech’s superior customer support. With its quality design and highly competitive price, the Titan is ready to fill your CompactPCI needs.

01.08.2001 - The new high performance technology of its NT960 adapter

Connect Tech Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality serial communications adapters, is pleased to announce that the high performance technology of its NT960 adapter is now available for the PCI bus compatible computer. This RISC-based intelligent multi-port subsystem offers one of the industry’s most flexible solutions for demanding serial I/O requirements. Robust and efficient, the NT960/PCI is built around a 33 MHz Intel 80960 RISC processor, with 1 MB of RAM. These features substantially reduce serial I/O bottlenecks on the host CPU, resulting in improved operations for your system. In combination with our modular ACM technology, one NT960/PCI host adapter can accommodate up to 128 flexible, high performance ports. Serial Line Interface Modules ensure your system comes with the electrical interface combinations that are right for your requirements. Add the ease of Plug and Play, and support for all the most popular operating systems and the NT960/PCI subsystem is the logical, reliable choice for your complex communications needs. The NT960/PCI can be purchased as a PCI host adaptor replacement for an existing Intellicon-NT960 ISA bus system, or as part of a new serial I/O subsystem.
