Pixus Technologies has announced a new line of Serial MUX boards that provide for the condensing of multiple serial ports into one compact interface.
The Pixus Serial MUX solution can save significant I/O panel space in a chassis platform and can be mounted to a backplane or other part of the system. A single USB 2.0 Micro input interface port on the MUX mezzanine board allows up to 28 RS-232 (UART/MP) ports, 2 USB interfaces, and a chassis manager interface.
The MUX boards also can be ruggedized and conformal coated for MIL rugged applications. Multiple configurations and similar designs are optional. This includes versions with an RS-232 input or a design for JTAG that is available upon request. Contact Pixus for more options for Serial MUX solutions.
