Synchronous vs Asynchronous cards

There are three main differences between our async and sync cards. The first is cost. Our asynchronous cards are very cost competitive. Our synchronous cards are also cost competitive but they’re significantly more expensive. Number two, while our synchronous cards will do asynchronous communication the communication chips are not optimized for asynchronous.And finally number three is software compatibility. Synchronous cards require a lot of configuration that asynchronous cards don’t.
