How to Buy

Digi Neo multiport serial cards are designed for reliable serial port expansion in tight workspaces and specialized server/PC environments. They are ideal for point-of-sale, industrial automation, factory control, kiosks and data collection applications.

Leveraging an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), Digi Neo delivers up to 921.6 Kbps of throughput. This PCIe compatible card offers on-board surge suppression on each signal, protecting system operation from electrical interference. Additional features include large buffers for data transfer, low latency and baud rate customization.

These low-cost serial cards have one of the smallest form factors available and are one of the only low profile eight-port cards on the market. An extensive range of cabling and software driver options makes Digi Neo a flexible and easy-to-install solution. Enhanced software monitoring and diagnostic tools ensure proper installation and serial port performance.

  • All RJ-45 to DBx cables are 10-pin. Only the RJ-45 to RJ-45 cable is an 8-pin cable.
  • All RJ-45 adapters are 8-pin. When using these adapters with modems or other applications that require DCD on pin 1, you must turn on altpin.
  • If altpin is turned off, the hardware signal on pin 1 becomes DSR instead of DCD. This alternative can be used if DCD is not required, and DSR is needed instead.
