Serial Devices exist everywhere, in homes, offices, industrial facilities, Airports, Squad Cars serial devices are everywhere.(look behind you) Serial has been a standard for communication for over 50 years. This technology is not going anywhere and not fast. RS232 communications has some limitations, Speed being the biggest one. USB to Serial adapters usually have a UART chip that only supports up to 230kbps transmission, the UART chip we utilize offers 920kbps transmission rate. YAY!
