The OXCB950 Cardbus UART hardware is essentially a high performance device that has an integrated UART Cardbus. The UART is responsible for controlling the function of the different interfaces in the computer system primarily those connected to the serial interface. The software driver that supports the OXCB950 Cardbus UART allows the devices connected to the RS232 data cable to talk with the computer system applications that require access to their supported feature sets. Modems are the most frequent devices that benefit from the functionality delivered by this software driver. The OXCB950 Cardbus UART is basically the 32-bit counterpart of the PCMCIA standard computer card which delivers a wider bus for better data flow. The function for supporting bus mastering, high speed communication and broadband connection is likewise supported by the software driver to deliver video capture and conferencing features.
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
The OXCB950 Cardbus UART driver allows for automated enumeration of all local and internal bus components of the computer system. It makes the serial interface port improve its performance by allowing the configuration of its settings as compared to a generic host driver. The PCI interface likewise benefits from the installation of the driver by allowing for the efficient mapping of memory that results in faster output via the parallel port. Using the control panel features of the operating system will allow all COM ports to remap their properties which also translate to an improved ACPI support feature. The OXCB950 Cardbus UART and its corresponding software allows for the implementation of First In First Out (FIFO) processing models through improved handling of the system interrupts as well as the separate execution of the driver for the parallel interface port. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and OXCB950 Cardbus UART errors before installing any driver updates.
