  • Digiboard or digicard is a generic name for a serial port card made by Digi International.

  • While the typical PC comes with two serial ports, a compatible digiboard has the capability to add an additional 4, 8 or 16 additional serial ports to a system.

  • Common use in Control Industry - to provide your computer with up to 9 serial ports. If you are using multiple I/O drivers or multiple ports for one I/O driver, you may require the use of a DigiBoard.
