yup, i saw their webpage but i'm not really sure if i understand it correctly....this card enables me to connect 8 modems right? because it offers me an additional 8 serial ports?..plus its board has a mini processor....that means the cpu could work faster without any hastle from the serial ports because of the cyclades card...am i right??

That's what they claim yes. Have you tried altavista with
cyclades as topic. You find a lot of discussions about these cards. Most of them are positive.

I have used a cyclades 16, nice board for terminals, for modems make sure you get thier cables - 10wire rj45's are hard to come by.

I haven't used the board, but from reading the description, it should allow you to connect multiple serial devices to a system through one convienient card... as opposed to having multiple serial cards in your system..

this would be useful if you

1) ran an ISP and had lots of folks dialing in

2) provided your users a dial out modem pool

3)  had a number of serial devices, eg. plotters, printers, or modems and not enough
     open slots in your system for multiple serial cards..

4)  used your system to drive a pool of serial plotters or printers


etc. etc. etc. etc.


good luck
