Native Plus PCI

100% IBM-compatible high performance Twinax adapter for PC-to-AS/400 connectivity

Native Plus PCI Card Native Plus PCI provides PC-to-AS/400 connectivity and BOScom's Stealth Technology features to users of PCs with a PCI bus.
The PCI bus is supplied with all new PCs, and provides integrated "plug-and-play" installation. Native Plus PCI Twinax adapters permit PCs and PC printers to interface directly with midrange systems, enabling them to perform as enhanced IBM midrange terminals and printers. Based on a unique ASIC implementation, Native Plus PCI provides functionality not previously available in any Twinax adapter. The advanced hardware design of BOS's Twinax adapters permits simple installation, operation without memory segment or IRQ configuration, and fast operation, eliminating most of the problems usually associated with Twinax adapters and improving workstation performance. Native Plus PCI comes bundled with the high performance Native Plus software, and supports DOS and Windows 3.x/9x/Me/NT/2000/XP APPC clients.
