MP-S2 Serial Interface

The MP-S2 dual serial interface is a 5.75" wide x 4.75" high interface board implemented with the 6850 asynchronous communications interface adapter (ACIA). The board has been designed for use in the SWTPC S/09 computer and should be installed in one of the eight I/O card slots. The MP-S2 is used to interface serial type devices such as terminals, printers and modems to the computer system. The board is provided with two separate DB-25 connectors, one for each serial port. All input and output lines are RS-232C compatible - TTY current loop inputs and outputs are not provided.

Introduced by Southwest Technical Products Corporation in 1979. The assembled card cost $120.
