  About Serial ATA : FUJITSU Australia
Serial ATA is an evolutionary interface for the high-speed transfer of data in PCs, workstations, and laptops.
Serial ATA is faster and more versatile than Parallel ATA with higher transfer rates and a smaller connector with a one-metre cable.
Serial ATA also has a roadmap to 3Gb/s (300MB/s) and 6Gb/s (600 MB/sec), which is beyond the capabilities of Parallel ATA without increasing the cost of cabling, connectors, and silicon.

 Serial Port Splitter - serial port data splitter - split one serial COM port to many
Basically, Serial Splitter offers 3 types of port splitting options (one-to-many ports, many-to-one, many-to-many), where serial ports (physical or virtual ones or both kinds at once) are used to form any side of connection.
Serial Splitter splits one COM port (either real or virtual) into several ones (real or virtual ones), which are exact copies of the original port in the system.
Serial Splitter joins any number of COM ports into one serial port, allowing information from several devices to be received by a single application connected to the port at the OUT side of the bundle.

 Serial adapters - OLPC
OLPC has two different serial adapters for obtaining serial output from the laptop: the original +3.3Vdc serial/RS-232 level converter that came with the ´´ATest´´ boards, and a new multi-purpose serial adapter which supports +3.3V serial to RS-232 or USB.
The EC serial port may be used for monitoring by connecting a laptop/serial adapter cable to the first four pins of the connector.
The Pinout of the EC serial connector is identical to that of J1 except for the extra pin 5.

  Serial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Serial is a term, originating in literature, for a format by which a story is told in contiguous installments in sequential issues of a single periodical publication.
Serials were especially popular with children, and for many youths in the first half of the 20th century, a typical Saturday at the movies included a chapter of at least one serial, along with cartoons, newsreels, and two feature films.
As the serials were bought sight-unseen by the lesser theaters for an audience of children, their product often had the worst acting and scripts, the least capable direction, and the most monotonous music ever screened: worse than any film that got reviewed in print.

 Serial port - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, a serial port is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time (contrast parallel port).
Presence of a D-subminiature connector is neither necessary nor sufficient to indicate use of a serial port.
Serial ports use two-level (binary) signalling, so the data rate in bits per second is equal to the symbol rate in baud.

 Behaviour of the serial bully: attention seeker, wannabe, guru and sociopath including industrial psychopath, corporate ...
The serial bully appears to lack insight into his or her behaviour and seems to be oblivious to the crassness and inappropriateness thereof; however, it is more likely that the bully knows what they are doing but elects to switch off the moral and ethical considerations by which normal people are bound.
The serial bully in the workplace is often found in a job which is a position of power, has a high administrative or procedural content but little or no creative requirement, and which provides opportunities for demonstrating a "caring" or "leadership" nature.
Serial bullies regard mediation (and arbitration, conciliation, negotiation etc) as appeasement, which they ruthlessly exploit; it allows them to give the impression in public that they are negotiating and being conciliatory, whilst in private they continue the bullying.

 Greatest Serial Films
Serials were usually included during the shorts projected in a neighborhood movie theatre, offered before the feature film, B-western, or Saturday afternoon 'kiddie' matinee.

[Serials are distinctly different from film series (films with a recurring set of performers and identical plot routines, such as The Thin Man (1934), the James Bond films, or the Tarzan series), or from sequels (follow-up films that continue the plot with similar characters and events, such as The Planet of the Apes sequels).]

Serial Ports come in two "sizes", There are the D-Type 25 pin connector and the D-Type 9 pin connector both of which are male on the back of the PC, thus you will require a female connector on your device.

 Serial ATA - Frequently Asked Questions
Serial ATA is a disk-interface technology developed by a group of the industry's leading vendors to replace parallel ATA.
Serial ATA initially defined a roadmap starting at 1.5 gigabits per second (equivalent to a data rate of 150MB/s) and migrating to 3.0 gigabits per second (300 MB/s), then to 6.0 gigabits per second (600 MB/s).
One of the primary requirements of the Serial ATA 1.0 specification was to maintain backward compatibility with existing operating system drivers to eliminate incompatibility issues.

In the context of computer hardware and data transmission: serial connection, operation, and media usually indicate a simpler, slower operation and parallel indicates a faster operation.
Serial communication between your PC and the modem and other serial devices adheres to the RS-232C standard.

 Serial ATA
However, for a variety of reasons, including performance headroom, cabling issues, and voltage tolerance requirements, a new storage interface was required.
Officially formed in July 2004 by incorporating the previous Serial ATA Working Group, the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) provides the industry with guidance and support for 15 year old technology with a high speed serial bus supporting up to 10 years of future expansion.
Known as Serial ATA, the new serial interface is designed to overcome the limitations of parallel ATA in addition to providing further enhancements to the storage subsystem in today's platforms.

The new Spansion® S25FL Flash memory family is designed to reduce costs and dramatically simplify system design of consumer electronics and PC peripherals such as hard disk drives, optical drives, printers, cordless phones, DSL/cable modems, and DVD players and recorders.
Serial Flash memory communicates with processors in a different way than traditional parallel Flash memory.
Traditional Flash memory inputs or outputs 8, 16, or 32 bits of data simultaneously, but serial Flash memory inputs and outputs only one data bit (a 1 or a 0) at a time.

 Stargate Serial Configuration
The main serial port used as the Linux console which is located on the daughter card is mapped internally to /dev/ttyS0 on the Stargate board.
While this serial port can be used for other things, doing so compromises the Linux console which means if you ever loose the other form (s) of connectivity you may be using such as wireless or wired ethernet, you have a lovely looking brick that is difficult to recover.
The serial port interaction is very easy with this library as it takes care of all the issues of serial port baud rate setting, flow-control, etc. We use this for the BrainStem interaction and there are also streams for TCP/IP sockets, buffers, and a compression filter (zlib) that all are interchangeable.
