Serial port — In computing, a serial port is a serial communication interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time.


Throughout most of the history of computers, data was transferred through serial ports to devices such as modems, terminals. Modern computers without serial ports may require serial-to-USB converters to allow compatibility with RS serial devices, serial ports are still used in applications such as industrial automation systems, scientific instruments, point of sale systems and some industrial and consumer products. Server computers may use a port as a control console for Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem.


Network equipment often use serial console for configuration, serial ports are still used in these areas as they are simple, cheap and their console functions are highly standardized and widespread. This IC converts characters to and from asynchronous serial form, implementing the timing and framing of data in hardware, very low-cost systems, such as some early home computers, would instead use the CPU to send the data through an output pin, using the bit-banging technique. Early home computers often had proprietary serial ports with pinouts and voltage levels incompatible with RS, low-cost processors now allow higher-speed, but more complex, serial communication standards such as USB and FireWire to replace RS These make it possible to connect devices that would not have operated feasibly over slower serial connections, such as storage, sound.

Many personal computer motherboards still have at least one serial port, small-form-factor systems and laptops may omit RS connector ports to conserve space, but the electronics are still there. RS has been standard for so long that the Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem needed to control a serial port became very cheap and often exist on a single chip, sometimes also with circuitry for a parallel port.


The individual signals on a serial port are unidirectional and when connecting two devices the outputs of Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem device must be connected to the inputs of the other, devices are divided into two categories data terminal equipment and data circuit-terminating equipment. If it is necessary to connect two DTE devices a cross-over null modem, in the form of either an adapter or a cable, generally, serial port connectors are gendered, only allowing connectors to mate with a connector of the opposite gender.

With D-subminiature connectors, the male connectors have protruding pins, Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem type of connector can be mounted on equipment or a panel, or terminate a cable. Connectors mounted on DTE are likely to be male, and those mounted on DCE are likely to be female, however, this is far from universal, for instance, most serial printers have a female DB25 connector, but they are DTEs.

The desire to supply serial interface cards with two ports required that IBM reduce the size of the connector to fit onto a single card back panel, Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem DE-9 connector also fits onto a card with a second DB connector. Parallel port — A parallel port is a type of interface found on computers for connecting peripherals. The name refers to the way the data is sent, parallel ports send multiple bits of data at once, in parallel communication, as opposed to serial interfaces that send bits one at a time.


To do this, parallel ports require multiple data lines in their cables and port connectors, there are many types of parallel ports, but the term has become most closely associated with the printer port or Centronics port found on most personal computers from the s through the s. Today, the port interface is virtually non-existent because of the rise of Universal Serial Bus devices, along with network printing using Ethernet. Graphical Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem, along with a host of other devices, have designed to communicate with the system. An Wang, Robert Howard and Prentice Robinson began development of a low-cost printer at Centronics, the printer used the dot matrix printing principle, with a print head consisting of a vertical row of seven metal pins connected to solenoids. When power was applied to the solenoids, the pin was pulled forward to strike the paper and leave a dot.

On their original design, a typical glyph was printed as a matrix seven high and five wide, while the A models used a print head with 9 pins and this left the problem of sending the ASCII data to the printer. While a serial port does so with the minimum of pins and wires, it requires the device to buffer Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem the data as it arrives bit by bit, a parallel port makes this simpler, the entire ASCII value is presented on the pins in complete form.

In addition to the seven pins, the system also needed various control pins as well as electrical grounds. Wang happened to have a stock of 20, Amphenol pin micro ribbon connectors that were originally used for one of their early calculators. The interface only required 21 of these pins, the rest were grounded or not connected, the connector has become so closely associated Lenovo ThinkPad T22 3Com Modem Centronics that it is now popularly known as the Centronics connector. The host could send another character.

The host had to watch the BUSY line to ensure it did not feed data to the printer too rapidly, especially given variable-time operations like a paper feed 6. USB was designed to standardize the connection of peripherals to personal computers.
