USB To Serial Port
The USB port has many different uses. It can be used to connect your computer to one of the many electronic devices on the market, such as digital cameras and portable music players. It can also be used to connect one computer to another. As a last resort, it can also be used as an expansion port, turned, through the use of an adapter, into another type of port, such as a PS/2, Ethernet, or even serial port.
This easy adaptability of the USB port makes it an important component tool for any multimedia computer user's tool belt. If you want, for example, to connect your computer to a modem and your digital camera simultaneously, you are likely to be frustrated by the lack of available serial ports. However, by plugging a simple USB to serial port adapter into one of your USB ports, you can instantly gain access to an additional number of ports.
Byte Runner Technologies stocks many adapters that can achieve this end. For example, the PL-4COM is easily installable, requires no additional purchases, and immediately transforms your USB port into four serial ports. The PL-8COM does the same thing, but gives an additional eight ports instead of four.
You can also use the USB port as an adapter to yield up additional PS/2, Ethernet, infrared, IDE, or Bluetooth connections. Products that can do this are available at Byte Runner Technologies for very low prices. Each of them also comes with free technical support and a one year warranty/ 30 day money back guarantee combination.
