Virtual COM Port Drivers are great for people who test and develop serial port software. They also work great for debugging. If you're looking to increase your number of virtual COMs, this is a product that will connect you with as many interfaces as you need. Even if you don't have any real serial ports on your computer, VCPD for Windows will work for you. Through a null-modern connection, the VCPD will give you pairs of virtual serial interfaces to communicate with. The VCPD can either be used as a standalone product, OR you can integrate it with whatever product you're currently using. Also, by upgrading to the pro version of the VCPD, you'll be able to split and pair serial port data streams, add multiple ports to port bundles, or create a serial port switcher that will automatically locate free COM ports for you.
Another huge benefit to this product is that it doesn't require any additional hardware or cables for installation and usage.
None of your actual COM ports need to be tied up. The virtual ports will emulate ACTUAL ports in every way possible. Whatever applications you're using will not know the difference. The data transfer rate from port to port is also highly efficient. Typically, the response time between ports is just a few moments. The Port Driver can also match the speed of your device or application with ease, so you'll never have to worry about the device falling short of a specific speed requirement. These port drivers will also support any of your hardware signal lines. This will allow you to make any connection type that you wish. Your Driver will also remove your virtual ports just as easily as it creates them. The product will benefit you greatly in terms of software testing as well.
It allows two serial communications applications to run in conjunction.
One huge benefit specific to the Pro version of this product, however, is that it allows you to add an unlimited number of virtual COM ports to a single bundle. This means your single port bundle won't be divided into the typical two sides: "IN" and "OUT," as with the downgraded version of the VCPD. In that case, with the pro, anything you set to an individual port will go through a replication process and transmit to all other ports, both real and virtual. You'll be able to exchange data with as many devices and apps as you like; another reason I highly recommend upgrading to the pro version of the Virtual COM Port Driver for Windows.
