Abstract

Disclosed is a set of two 8-port asynchronous communication fanout assemblies in which each allows connection of up to eight devices (modems, printers, plotters, terminals, etc.) to a single RT PC adapter. These assemblies must provide adequate shielding and signal integrity and allow the use of existing device cables between the fanout assembly and the attached devices.
