Add an IEEE 1284 Parallel port to your laptop computer via an ExpressCard slot. The EC1PECPS 1 Port ExpressCard Laptop Parallel Adapter Card turns an ExpressCard slot into an IEEE 1284 Parallel port, allowing you to connect parallel devices to a laptop computer. The ExpressCard Parallel card is PCI Express (x1) based, ensuring faster data transfer rates between host and peripheral as compared to a USB-based ExpressCard; providing a cost-effective way to bridge the compatibility gap between your laptop and legacy devices. A convenient solution for adding a parallel printer or scanner, simply insert the adapter (EC1PECPS) into an available 34mm or 54mm ExpressCard slot and connect your parallel device to the adapter's SPP/EPP/ECP parallel port. The adapter card is WHQL certified, so driver installation is automated for a simple plug-and-play solution.
