Question:

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-GRV550 laptop and am looking at purchasing a weathershack.com WS-2315 weather station. The weather station states that download of data is only with a true serial port not a USB add-on serial port. First question: Is your SW-4721 Serial PCMIA card compatable with my laptop? Second Question: Will this PCMIA serial port be a true r232 IOIO serial port [not a USB serial port] so I will be able to download data? If you are not sure I plan to call weathershack and ask them but is there any specific information I need to give them about the SW-4721 serial port that will tell them whether this PCMIA care will work or not? Thank you.


Answer:

This should be compatible with your laptop. While they are more similar to integrated hardware than a USB virtual COM port, there are still some differences. I believe this uses the Texas Instruments TI 1420 chipset. You can contact weathershack to see if their system is compatible with that chipset.
