PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express), officially abbreviated as PCIe (or PCI-E, as it is commonly called), is a computer expansion card standard designed to replace the older PCI, PCI-X, and AGP standards.
PCIe 2.1 is the latest standard for expansion cards that is available on mainstream personal computers.

PCI Express Serial Cards

PCI Express serial communication boards meet the PCI Express Base Specification Revision 1.1.
They are compatible with PCI Express x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16 lane Bus.
The majority of today’s motherboards are not equipped with serial ports or only have one serial port.
PCI Express Serial CardsWith PCI Express serial board, users can add up to 8 serial ports to their system, allowing them to use serial devices further.
Windows 2000 and later and Linux 2.4x kernel and later support the PCI Express bus system.

See below for cards with both serial and parallel ports.

Quatech PCI Express - Serial Cards

• New generation of I/O interconnect standard
• 2, 4 or 6 port configurations
• Compliant with PCI Express Base Specification 1.0a
• Variety of configurations: serial, parallel, serial and parallel
• Advanced architecture making use of point-to-point technologies
• Data bus transfer rate of up to 2.5Gbps under one-lane operation
• 1.5 times faster compared to existing 32 bit PCI bus
• Broad product offering with multiple serial/parallel I/O configurations
• RoHS compliant
• 1 year warranty

Advance PCI technology with the introduction of the PCI Express Card. The PCI Express is the new standard serial connectivity card in PCI technology and the successor for server- and client-system I/O interconnects.

In addition to the bus technology upgrades, such as faster speeds and deeper FIFO rates, the PCI Express Card touts many advantages over the traditional PCI card including point-to-point link dedicated to each device, instead of PCI shared bus; lower latency in server architectures due to a more direct connection to the chip set; small connectors with easier implementation for system designers and advanced features via isochronous channels for guaranteed bandwidth delivery, advanced power management and hot swap support.

PCI Express Technology
The PCI Express Cards are available in 2, 4 or 6 port serial card configurations and offer high-speed, serial I/O bus that maintains backward compatibility with PCI applications and drivers. The layered architecture supports existing PCI applications and drivers by maintaining compatibility with existing PCI model.
Defined by high performance, scalable, serial bus, the PCI Express card is dedicated to the device while multiple PCI Express devices can be active without interfering with each other.

Quatech also offers 2 port parallel cards (see above); 2 and 4 port serial/parallel I/O cards and PCI Express to ExpressCard converters.

Advanced features
As client system boards migrate from the PCI connector to the PCI Express connector, Quatech’s PCI Express Card maximizes advanced features such as:

• Advanced power management
• Support for real-time data traffic
• Hot plug and hot swap
• Data integrity and error handling

PCI Express vs. Universal PCI
Although PCI and UPCI Cards can be used in a variety of platforms, the PCI Express reflects an industry trend to replace legacy shared parallel buses with high-speed serial buses.
They both have the same dimensions and are equipped with rear brackets, the difference lies in the I/O connectors.
PCI Express has 36 pins versus the 120 pins on a standard PCI connector.
