Serial Device Server Applications White Paper

5th Thursday, 2012  |  Engineering News, Life at LAVA  |  no comments

We’ve just added a new white paper to our collection of technical white papers. This one’s a survey of uses for serial device servers (LAVA’s Ether-Serial Links) that looks beyond the obvious purpose of IP-enabling serial ports to look at other uses for these versatile devices.

Additional functionality in Ether-Serial Links makes it possible for them to pipe DOS commands over Ethernet, eliminate costly signal amplifiers, and convert serial port settings between devices (such as converting 7-bit serial to 8-bit serial), among other things.

These applications are supplemented with real-work instances and case studies.
