The Dual I/O Port A card device makes it easy for users to add 2 serial com (communication) ports to their mobile computer systems that are Windows based. This connection allows users to connect to their most used peripherals. Every port functions independently and is capable of linking to an external GPS receiver, digital camera, printer, modem device, industrial equipment or other serial devices. This card features hot swapping and plug and play (PnP) capability on almost all mobile computer systems that are Windows based. The hot swapping function is capable of adding and removing devices while a computer system is running and having the computer instantly recognize the change in state. The Dual I/O Port A card device also comes bundled with a software that has High Speed COM Tools. These COM tools allow users to utilize higher baud rates even in applications that only enable users to select a baud rate of a maximum of 115 kilobits per second (kbps).
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
These COM Tools come in different versions for the Windows notebooks and Windows Mobile. In Windows CE/ Mobile, users can make use of the COM tools for quickly identifying the COM port designated to every connection, aside from allowing baud mapping. In the Windows 2000 and XP operating system platforms, users can make use of the COM tools for quickly identifying the number of the COM port designated to every connection as well as changing the COM port number, aside from allowing baud mapping. This robust set of tools primarily allows users to utilize an available value of baud rate as a place holder for a baud rate that is selected by the user. This processing is known as mapping. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dual I/O Port A errors before installing any driver updates.
